Rented a bike for 3 hours to tour some of the canal paths along the Greenway. Excellent service. Adjusted the seat three times until it was just right. Good prices compared to other London bike rental.

Luckily for us this cafe is across the Olympic Park from us. What a treat. Great for Sunday Brunch or nice coffee and cake. The food is amazing and freshly cooked while you wait. The staff are helpful, friendly and fun. Good value, good food and nice view. What more could you ask for?

Something changed in what used to be a great spot of the east london. Owner behind the till really unpolite to costumers and even to his own staff....sausages frozen and uneadible....coffees are decent depending on who's preparing them...will never go back and wouldn't suggest it to my worst enemy

I visited The View Tube one sunny Sunday morning for breakfast on the recommendation of a friend. Upon arrival I was greeted by a small hoard of spandex clad part-time cyclists who were gearing up for a weekend ride around London. Now is a good time to mention that The View Tube serves a dual purpose as both a secluded... More

The View Tube is the perfect alternative to riding 'Boris Bikes' around the Olympic park. If you don't want to stop and start to avoid the costs or prefer a whole day out cycling, these cycles are perfect - complete even with basket to hold our Westfield shopping! What's more, we had an absolutely GORGEOUS cake - chocolate muffin with... More

On the Greenway at the Southern end of the Olympic park is an odd yellow building. It was built partly as an observation tower for people to view the construction of the Olympic stadium. What is hidden inside is a really excellent cafe! Don't expect comfort or classy decorations, do expect a bit of mess and a fair number of... More

It is a very nice place with caring staff. You can have lunch outside, inside or inside a glass box. It's food is delicious and yummy. They serve the best bacon and sausage sandwiches.

Whilst in the Hackney area I took a walk by the canal and up Greenway and ended up at "The View Tube"... It's basically a row of metal shipping containers / garage lock-ups painted bright green with an iron clad, (also the same bright green), building on the end of it which housed a nice Café ('The Moka East Café'),...
