Make mine a G&T

Maybe I am not the all-knowing vegan guru of London, after all. I seem to be stumbling upon formerly unknown (to me) vegan and vegan friendly locations almost weekly.

I can add G&T Organic Shop and Coffee House to this growing list.

It took a visit from one of my favourite people on the planet to hip me to the existence of G&T. It shouldn’t be a shock that one of my friends knew about an almost completely vegan coffee shop before I did apart from the fact that this friend lives in Seattle.

Josh and I recently met up with Anika of Vegan Score for lunch in Bethnal Green. Anika is THE go to resource for her neck of the woods but I never thought she would escort me to an unknown and animal-friendly coffee outlet in my own town!

G&T is an interesting, cute and useful set up. It appears to be primarily a coffee shop but it also stocks a wide range of organic pantry items as well as some fresh fruit and vegetables. The juice menu is impressive and food can be purchased to go or to have at one of the small tables.

The owner of the store was incredibly friendly to my group and we adored our fresh juices, tea and cakes. All of the food and groceries are vegan, however G&T succumb to that redundant (in my opinion) habit of serving milk from cows. On the upside, they do give a slight discount to customers ordering their hot beverage with soya milk.

If you are an East Ender looking for a local coffee shop or just a food tourist passing through, it would be worth your while to give G&T the once over.

    Is it far from the tube station?

  2. I don’t understand why they still serve milk. Surely their customer base wouldn’t notice if they stopped serving it (apart from to praise them). I wonder how much they actually sell with cows milk?

      I had a long chat with the owner once, and she was telling me over 90% of their customers aren’t vegan. It makes sense, as it’s not the most central location – so most people who frequent it are just people who live in the area. She said they’re trying to introduce vegan food to people in the area who aren’t vegan. I guess that’s why they give a discount for soya – to try and encourage people who don’t normally drink it and might even be scared of it to try it.
