I highly recommend this cafe. It has such delicious food. I've been three times and I always enjoy what I eat. Staff are friendly and it has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

Lovely cafe with great views over the Olympic Stadium, they had a choice of 4 soups and paninis, all delicious and good value for money. Great pit stop if you're walking around the canals and the park.

We ate here on our day out to the Olympic Park. Very quirky space. Our lunch was delicious and good value for money. The Ukelele group were practising for their show tomorrow. You can have a go on the piano... write a story on the wall, draw a picture and generally hang out - and yes, you can hire a... More

Leading up to the Olympics and shortly afterwards it was the 'in place' to go to eat, meet friends and have a good view of the important bits of the Olympic Park. It was never intended to be posh but the simple food was acceptable at reasonable prices. Now the Olympics has been over for a couple of years I... More

Used this for a corporate hospitality day and I cannot fault it. The venue does have the feel of a classroom and the chairs are lower than normal however once you get over this the technology available is great and the views of the stadium from the balcony are second to none. It's easy to get to but most of... More

Between Pudding Mill Lane DLR station and the Olympic Park the cafe offers great views and is a lovely place to stop off for a drink or snack, way better value than inside the park itself. There's a section that gives information about the area, you can also hire a bike and even have a go on the piano whilst... More

First of all, the positive aspects. I used the ViewTube to hire a bike to go riding around the Olympic Park for a couple of hours. The bikes they have are nice and sturdy and you are offered a helmet, lock and hi-vis jacket if you want one for no extra cost. It's £7 for 2 hours so not a... More

But I've also been in the sewer and that might be a bit smelly, but it's in such good condition despite being built in the mid-1800s, that everything noxious stays there. The cafe gives good views of the Olympic Park and offers snacks and cakes in addition to excellent drinks. I'm a coeliac and they always seem to have gluten-free... More

This a is great meeting point with a café (called Moka East) , bike hire and community centre. I cycle here a lot - it has become a regular stopping off point on my many cycle rides. It is brilliantly situated on the Greenway next to the Olympic Park, has great views over the park and is often the starting... More

Throughout the construction of the Olympic Park, The Greenway was closed. This is one of my favourite walks across east London and it's loss was felt even more keenly by those who used it as a safe, traffic free foot or cycle commute too. One of the few bonuses of this closure though was the creation of The View Tube.... More
