Wild Cherry, E2 0JD

Now closed; was a vegetarian cafe in Bethnal Green run by the adjoining London Buddhist Centre. As of early 2012, the premises are occupied by a different vegetarian cafe called The Larder.

The information below is retained for people who want to know what it used to be like.

An excellent cafe, run by the adjoining London Buddhist Centre (*), which serves all-vegetarian food. It's a fairly large space, with plenty of tables and lots of light coming in through the windows, though it can get full due to its popularity. As such, you may also find yourself waiting a little while by the food counter to be served. Service is friendly, though, as you'd expect.

On Saturdays, they do an all-day breakfast which I can heartily recommend, though the price (£6.25) is at the higher end of the scale. However, the food is definitely worth it, with excellent sausages, and a particularly tasty cherry tomato sauce. Mushrooms are also nicely cooked, with plenty of herbs. All other ingredients are as standard for a breakfast, but of high quality.
