We’ve brought comfort food, cracking coffee and cocktails to Croydon’s Boxpark, seconds away from East Croydon station. Serving up breakfast & lunch in our “70s Christmas chic” shipping container (a customer’s words – not ours!).

We are a caf...


Not a cafe, not a shop, not a branch, not a unit, not a restaurant. Just a caf.


There was also a time they called us a hipster hangout but thankfully that was just a passing phase. We don’t profess to being cool, because we’re not.


We make comfort food.


We make warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach food. We make ‘is my gran in your kitchen?’ food. We make ‘3 star ethically sourced good for the planet’ food.


Everyone is welcome. Me, your mum, my grandad, your uncle Albert, little Jonnie and all our best pals. Everyone is welcome.


At one point we tried to save the world with varying degrees of success. But we’ll leave that to Greta as we feel she’s doing a much better job. We’ll stick to being a caf and supporting our local communities.


Release your inner cafness.


Croydon are now accepting bookings for both outdoor & indoor dining. Click here to book.


Important Info: On Sunday 13th June you must have a booking in order to visit the caf. We unfortunately won’t be able to seat walk-ins after 10am.
