6 Love It

It looks like a café, sounds like a café and serves food in café-sized portions, but the globetrotting menu at La Cafeteria is more inventive than most local lunch spots, and the food of a much higher quality. It also now opens Thursday to Sunday evenings, thanks to public demand. Dishes skirt the shores of the Mediterranean, covering inventive pastas (penne with bacon, spinach, olives and sun-dried tomatoes, for instance), elaborate salads and hearty, healthy couscous options before landing back on home turf with bangers, burgers and reliably belt-busting breakfasts. Local office workers tend to nip in for one of a range of top-notch baguettes or toasted sandwiches, while a variety of papers and magazines encourage those with time on their hands to linger a while; the atmosphere is family friendly throughout.

Little Gemof Walthamstow. Excellent food, excellent value and friendly service. We have eaten here Christmas Day for the last 2yrs!


Recommending from a friend. This place was great. presentation of food was top class and as for value for money.... well you just can't complain. I will be going back again and trying out more stuff on the menu. Big portions!!


beautiful food ALWAYS, friendly staff lovely presntation, very reasonable especially for the portion sizes, have not been dissapointed yet and have been many times, you must try this place its yummy :)


Good value and great Saturday morning breakfast.....with wide range of papers and magazines (including TO). And when the weather is hot, there is a garden to sit in. The staff are friendly and meet all my (un) reasonable demands. There remember my complex order so I just sit down and it turns up, without ordering. A great place to eat in Walthamstow. And it is reasonable price as well.

I love this place! The food is amazing & is great value for money. The presentation of different dishes is stunning & to top it off the service is very friendly & profession. We went for my mum's birthday - I have poaches haddock with veg, my dad had the chicken breast both which were great - but my mum picked the best dish, lamb steak which was cooked to perfection. I can't believe Time Out have only given a 3 - I couldn't fault them.


This place is simply awesome if you want great homemade gourmet food.Good for breakfast,lunch and dinner with families or friends.A relaxed atmosphere with tasty creative dishes,something for everyone,the staff are very welcoming and place to eat in walthamstow...never once been disappointed LOVE IT !!!!
