Wahaca seems like a pretty good place to go for a variety of vegan/non-vegan options. Any other similar recommendations for a place with good variety ideally close to Central London?


Yes mate. The Temple of Seitan have just opened up a new joint at Old Street (I may be paying it a visit tonight!), The Gallery Cafe, Old Ford Road Bethnal Green is decent if a bit pricey as is The Cherry which is in Globe Road, just down from the Florists Pub. Wahaca have branches in central London as well, I've done the one at Covent Garden and it's very decent.

You've also got Mildred s near Kings Cross and Soho, Mana at Primrose hill and Covent Garden is a haven for vegan/veggies with The Wild Food Cafe, plus loads more and Dosa near Goodge Street is excellent if you want good and unusual Indan food.

The Poplar Cafe, Poplar High Street, Poplar E14.

One of the best cafe's I've been in. I used to be a regular (at least 5 days a week) but now I go there once and a while. Today was for Father's Day with the old man and my sister. He had a lamb roast and there was so much lamb, about 8 big slices plus loads plus roasties, two batter puds and veg. He said the lamb was perfect and it pained him to leave some as there was just too much. My sis had a lasagne, salad and chips, which again was a massive portion. She said it was lovely. I had a vegan fry up, which really filled a hole after being on the beer the night before and not eating anything. There was so much had to leave some, which is unusual for me 9/10

Yes, Smiths of Ongar.

Yeah going to book that next time, I want to give them a gift, the reviews aren't as good as the Wapping one but still pretty decent.

Good to see no kind of dress code in the Duck & Waffle...
