3 out of 5 stars

A neighbourhood veggie spot with an informal terrace.

Lunch-only spot Bühler + Co serves the best kind of small plates: seasonal veg in well-executed vignettes, which showcase unexpected flavours and aren’t so small that you’re left fighting over the last mouthful of ancient grains.

Bao buns filled with jackfruit or to-fish (yes, tofu-based ‘fish’) were the only vegan options that tried too hard, and they were the least successful. The rest of the eclectic menu was confidently vegetarian; favourites included beetroot salad that was a jamboree of feta, smoked almonds, crunchy Chinese cabbage and truffle dressing. It shouldn’t work. But it did.

Heartier small plates included the Galushka Hungarian dumplings, which were twizzles of comforting dough in a bright pea and mint dressing, and pearl barley risotto with a snow of hard cheese covering juicy mushrooms underneath. Some dishes fell short of expectation; the halloumi fries were overcooked and dessert truffles were one-note of coconut oil, but the wait staff were friendly enough to make up for it. Interiors are also charming, featuring a terrace and conservatory room out the back, and inside a look-at-me gold ceiling, terrazzo tiles, and Scandi aesthetic wooden hooks around the walls. It’s a well-loved local’s restaurant, and it’s easy to see why.

I've been here twice for breakfast/brunch and recommend it on a weekday morning when it is peaceful! On a Sunday midday it is manic, large tables with kids and babies everywhere and lots of noise! The staff also struggled to cope with our order, wouldn't swap a poached egg with scrambled and items were missing off plates when serving us. The consistency of dishes weren't great on this busy day either, three of us had the baked eggs and they weren't all the same quality - one was watery but we couldn't face calling the waitress back again. All this aside, the all vegetarian menu is a delight and there's still more on there I want to try. The veggie fry-up is extremely satisfying although I'd suggest the paratha is too much (if completely unnecessary!) and more a form of puff pastry. The food is a talking point and the cafe itself is simple with a lovely outdoor/indoor space at the back. Even the meat eaters of the group seemed pretty happy once they'd eaten their meals as I think they were (sadly) a little daunted by the meat free menu whilst hungover! I'll be back, but sadly Buhler didn't wow me like I had expected it to.

The owners of Buhler and Co have brought trendy vegetarian dining to Walthamstow. Can you please take me back here please? We came here for brunch on a Sunday and the food was incredibly presented and delicious. The meals are a little above average price but you sure do get your moneys worth. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere is light and airy! I'd highly recommend this hidden gem!


I love it here, I keep going back for more. The atmosphere is great, food is delicious, and friendly staff. Highly recommend


The food here is so good, I keep going back to try more from the menu. The veggie fry up is really good, perfect weekend breakfast fodder. Stand out dish for me was their spätzle with pea and truffle, everything I've had is really tasty. Super high standard for presentation and flavours.


Well priced, delicious and innovative food in a beautiful setting To top it off lovely friendly service. A real gem!


They've got this just right. Airy, clean, relaxing, top notch coffee and food.


Fantastic brunch spot - amazing flavour and refreshingly different from the usual fare. Excellent value for money too


The Buhler girls have brought a whole new level to vegetarian dining and, in my humble opinion, put Walthamstow on the map as one of the coolest areas to eat in London! Their antipodean menu is nothing short of remarkable- each and every item on there causing you to salivate and, well, let's not even get me started on their cocktails! Heaven!! Wow, a delight from the moment you step through that door- could not rate it highly enough!!


Exceptional quality ingredients and mouth-watering food served without the fuss! The Kiwi sisters clearly put a huge amount of time into the design and feel of the space (they tell me this is their first cafe, but it seems like second-nature). With a menu led by vegetables, they satiate local bellies that have gone neglected for years. You have to try the soba noodle main and their cinnamon buns..don't get me started on the Climpson coffee brewed by their lovely team!


Really inspired vegetarian cooking (not just smashed avo on toast) great coffee and super friendly service from the Buhler sisters and staff.


A great place to grab a bite to eat. Happy staff and great food. Looking forward to my next trip there.


Probably best coffee in Walthamstow- the baristas take coffee seriously. Not eaten meals there but good cake. Friendly staff.


Great addition to Walthamstow. Amazing brunch and menu, vege inspired and on top of that really great service. If you want Insta-friendly brunch options that taste better than they look this is the place to visit!
