In the heart of Columbia Road you can find SITE - a design space and vegan cafe, which opened its doors last year, founded by architect Elly Ward Morris.
The space is not only a beautiful cafe where you can grab a tasty oat latte and delicious vegan pastries, but it’s also a place where exhibitions and installations take place - a space where design and vegan cuisine meet. The unique table in the middle - designed and built by Elly, gives plenty of space for everyone to gather around, have meetings, read a book, do some work or simply meet a friend for an overdue catch up.
It’s hard to miss SITE on the wonderfully eclectic Columbia Road - the sign outdoors literally pops out and invites you to pop in. Also, if you’re out and about with your four-legged friends you’re more than welcome to stop by together for an energising break before stepping out onto the flower market or an adventurous walk around East London.
SITE is open every day between 8am and 4pm during coffee-longing hours. Make sure to arrive early on Sundays to get a seat as it’s super busy with the weekly flower market.
