And that will be paradise. Because killing other animals and stealing their breast milk is wrong, and one day everyone will acknowledge this. Until then, we lucky few have places like Lele’s where we can eat anything off their imaginative and yummy menu. I had brunch with my son and it was the best thing I’d eaten in months, so fresh and full of textures and flavour. I am trying to reproduce their recipe for scrambled tofu, which is so tasty, herby and spicy compared to that old egg thing you used to eat...the sourdough toast is delectable. I can recommend the coffee and the charcoal croissants too. Both delicious. The latter is about as Hackney as you can get. I can also tell you that service from the lovely Mollie was warm, friendly and efficient. If you can, go there.

The café is looking so cute and sweet that we had to go in for breakfast. The avocado bread is great and also the banana bread is delicious. Totally enjoying the sweet details of the interior!

I bought the afternoon tea for myself, my grandma and my mum (who are not vegan unlike myself) as a Christmas present. I can honestly say It was the best vegan food I’ve ever had. We got to try an array of dishes, from (fish-free)salmon and cream cheese sandwiches, to savoury scones, to the most delicious cakes and tarts. Even the coffee was amazing.

My grandma and mum (the typical vegan critics) were amazed that vegan food could taste so good - in fact, they genuinely couldn’t taste the difference. In their experience, they both said it was the best afternoon tea they have had to date.

All of the food was handmade, delicious and exceptionally well-priced. Along with this, the service was personal and friendly, and it was a pleasure to meet Valentina who has clearly invested so much love and time into such a beautiful business.

Cannot wait to visit again and will be recommending to all friends and family - both vegan and non-vegan!

Afternoon tea was always a favourite treat of mine and this Vegan afternoon tea has made me so happy, as it's been a while since I've had one! Not only are the cakes delicious, they are beautifully presented. Finally somewhere we can visit with lovely service, delicious cakes and a cruelty free menu.
