The full article gives some more info and quotes from both Uber Eats and other award winners.

Here’s the full list of awardees, with links to the London businesses:

Congrats to the Guava Kitchen, located at 16 London Road, and whose opening we covered back in 2019 here: The Guava Kitchen [Now Open]

Has anyone actually eaten there?
I’d love to know if its worth a try on a day off (they open 9-6 or something so could never go on a work day).
Any reviews welcome.
And well done to the owner for getting the award.

I’ve been in a few times and it’s really nice. Nice coffee (plant milks only) and nice cakes. I haven’t tried the savoury menu. It’s quite spacious and really clean, which is something I look out for during a covid surge! Good wifi and many plug sockets if you need them.

I went when they opened and had a lovely stew. I’m sure one could manage to poke their nose in on a day off and try it out.

We get lunch there at least once a week. The food is delicious and a very different offering to anywhere else locally. My favourites are the rundown curry the burger. The service is a little bit slow but you can sit and work there while you wait.

because its always closed when I rush past I never actually get to see the menu,
I’ve seen cakes but wondered if they do good salads?
If so it could be a great post gym option on a day off (my current go-to is Blue Brick in east Dulwich which is veggie rather than vegan but with vegan options)

Google informs that they do in fact have a menu online, which does include their opening hours too.

The food is nice - and they are on Deliveroo quite often too. Service is pretty slow though - both in the cafe and on deliveries, as I think there’s only usually one person serving and one in the kitchen. So if you just want to pop in and grab something, it’s possibly not the place. But nice range of home cooked veggie food, and quite a few vegan options.

Went here on Sunday and got chatting to their lovely staff.

Top carrot cake and oat chai!

Will try something savoury next time

Agree about the carrot cake. Good flavour and moist.
