InSpiral Lounge, NW1 8QS

  • 250 Camden High Street

InSpiral Lounge was a vegetarian cafe right by the canal in Camden Town. It closed down in January 2016, but was immediately replaced by another vegetarian cafe under a different name (Camden Canal Cafe) and different management.

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

Very nice veggie/vegan cafe right by the canal in Camden Town. Run by the IDSpiral people who do chillout at Glastonbury, Glade, and various raves. Really relaxed atmosphere, nice sofas, good food, and a lovely view over the canal through the enormous windows at the back.

They have various juices and smoothies available, and also have an alcohol license; wine (possibly organic), hemp beer, a couple of other bottled things, and cocktails.

As of Juliet and doop's latest visit in February 2008, the food options comprised a hot and cold buffet - £5 for a small plate (three choices), £6 for a medium one (four choices), and £7 for a large one (five choices, plenty enough for dinner). They usually have about five hot and five cold (salad-type) options - all veggie, most vegan. There's also various cakes and raw chocolate ball sweeties. Everything Juliet has had there has been excellent. All the cakes are vegan (November 2008).

They also do various events, have DJs in, etc. At the time of writing (February 2008) their website is advertising live music on Sunday nights, including acoustic sessions and open mic spots. They have free wireless internet too.

An anonymous commenter on this page tells us that they visited around the start of 2009 and had a raw nut burger with tomato topping, a selection of crunchy salads, a raw chocolate tart, and a home-made cup of chai (soya or rice milk options, plus agave or yacon syrup for sweetening); this came to just over £10.
