Venue says The Canary is a hairdressers combined with a vegetarian café based in the heart of an East End community in Bethnal Green.

The east London outpost of this cheery and progressive hairdressers and veggie cafe is a neighbourhood star. Tucked away in a Bethnal Green side street, opposite a pocket-sized park, you’re unlikely to stumble across it unless you’re hyper local, but it’s well worth making the effort to find.

The atmosphere is authentically creative and friendly; this feels like a place that’s designed and staffed by people who care about its values and success. Happily, there’s nothing preachy about those values. Yes, Gav and the team are currently developing some very bespoke-sounding vegan hair treatments using only ultra-natural ingredients like avocado (Instagrammers of the future, the ‘clean hair’ movement started here!). However nothing on the standard menu will scare off the less highly committed customer: expect to get a deft professional haircut using nice, environmentally considerate products, at a standard price range for a niche hair salon in east London (prices start at £45 for a men’s cut and style).

The salon menu includes beard trims from £18 and specialises in colour. That’s also true of the imaginative tiny café/deli on the left hand side of the building, which serves up imaginative, colourful meat-free versions of classic cakes and sandwiches. The emphasis is on experimentation and the dishes change daily, but the hit-to-miss ratio is high. The vegan BLT is astonishing. Like everything here, it’s done with flair, care, and commitment to the customer and the planet.

A brilliant hairdressers, excellent coffee, delicious vegan and vegetarian food with warm friendly service. Ideal!


A high end salon but local..laid back and friendly atmosphere. .This is now my go to place for hair, also a great colourist! You can also have a coffee and some food!


Super friendly and delicious place! Allpress coffee (with estate dairy milk which is great/rare to see!) and vegan version of pulled pork are my favourites!! Food menu is always something new so I'm never bored to eat here!! 👍


Favourite place for coffee and vegan food. Everyone must try the rainbow lattes and banana bread!! The space is really bright and calm, have had my hair coloured here a couple of times too and the stylist really listens and creates a bespoke colour. A hidden gem in East, super friendly staff and knowledgeable chef who is always creating new recipes.
