I always come here on the weekend and the food is great- always worth the wait (it is usually at capacity when I arrive). The vegan options are superb. The staff are mostly great, it seems they have a new member of staff who served me recently though and she was incredibly rude, she started with a "What do you want?"! She also got the order completely wrong, and forgot my coffee. A friend of mine told me she used to work at the Blue Legume on Church street and the service was terrible there so perhaps she thinks this is normal customer service? BUT all other staff are amazing. Next time I visit I will have to take a look through the window to make sure this particular waitress is not serving.... because apart from this, I love Cafe Z!


If you have a hangover this is the place for you. Blend in to the noise and get a huge plate of food with no frills for a reasonable price. However, steer clear if you are expecting more especially with so many fantastic cafes in this area. The smell of grease clings to you all day so grab a table outside.


I used to come here as a student for the reasonably priced and generously portioned breakfasts - and still return from time to time. The service has always been hit and miss and that much hasn't changed - nor has it's popularity - expect to queue and in turn have hungry customers gazing at your plates. Their veggie breakfast is still delicious, and they do let you switch out any items you don't like. 

Went there 2times with the 1st one being very dissapointed experience i though ill give them a another try but 2nd experience was worst than the first one. It was 3of us ordered at the same time but all the food came at different time with 10minutes between them so while i was eating my friend had to watch me and same for me. We tryed to explain the situation to the so called manager but she was very rude and very defensive and not understanding at all and her excuse was they were busy. When we said we would not be coming again her response was like she just didnt care which annoyed me more. What a positive start to a day. The food is average nothing special. There are much better places in stoke newington thats for sure.

Lovely ambience and really friendly, efficient staff. Breakfast menu is especially good and pretty reasonably priced. My favourite cafe in Stoke Newington.
