Amazing coffee shop and restaurant. You feel like home right when you get in. Friendly staff and great ambiance. Love it!

Been with Muxima since the beginning , and they are literally like family now. I am a bit bias as i DJ here sometimes, but that is because the vibe is perfect for adulting, working, having a catch up with friends, and bringing your children. . The food is great, the staff are amazing, the location is perfect and I am happy they are expanding to other cafes in and around East London.

Staff is great and superfriendly! And the atmosphere is always relaxed, it's simply a great place to have a coffee or to hang out.

Best coffee shop in Roman Road. The people there are wonderful and always up for a chat.

The best coffee shop in London. Most chilled environment, amazing coffee and cakes

Great coffee, fab cakes, lovely warm and welcoming staff. Manages to pull off being cosy and chilled while being engaging and interesting. Its main asset is all Roman Road life can be found here.

Great coffee, the shakshuka's a favourite, and the staff make the place feel like home.

Great food, great coffee and most importantly great people who've created a very inclusive community. Well done

Original unique décor, beautiful vibes, genuine people, service and delicious food, great live performances and fabulous DJ's all in the heart of Bow!
You just gotta check it out!

Just the coolest place run by the friendliest team with a lovely mix of people eating, drinking, working there....and great entertainment too

Always friendly staff, good coffee and amazing cakes. It has a really laid back quality and often hosting interesting artwork.

The food is simple but delicious and the atmosphere is relaxed and on the right side of hip. It's definitely one of the best places in the area to grab a bit and a coffee.


With incredibly nice staff, this café offers a first-rate coffee, tasty breakfast and delicious cakes.
I haven’t been in the events they have in the evenings [pop-up dinners, live music sessions] but they seem pretty interesting and, if made with such care as the quirky decor, they’d be definitively worth a visit.
Muxima is not exactly cheap, but it has the best ambiance in the Roman Road market area (and always, really, always good music).

Great atmosphere with really good coffee and tasty food. Friendly staff reflecting a community feel - a place to chat or to be private if you want. Who could ask for more?

Beautiful restaurant, with the most friendly customer service pop in for a coffee and a delicious homemade cake, or sit down and enjoy Mediterranean dishes with a glass of Rioja....

Muxima is such a gem. It unique in East London in that the wonderful owners, Isaac and Leila encourage a social environment in the cafe, it has a community feel where anyone is invited to be a part of it.

Unique, welcoming, loving little corner of the world where the coffee is of exceptional quality, the staff is genuinely friendly and the customer feels instantly at home. Their eggs are to die for and anything off the brunch menu is a delight. With a variety of cultural events showcasing, such as documentary screenings, poetry slams, art exhibitions and great bands there is always something to love. A real gem!

Everyone's second living room. Favourite place in London and definitely best coffee.

Best shakshouka in the East End, amazing coffee and cakes, and the staff are incredibly lovely. The live music nights are great and the book selection is enough to keep you going back. Love it, my favourite cafe! - M

Love it here! Have spent days in here with laptop, coffee and delicious cake in hand!

Really lovely place to relax and enjoy the delicious menu. Absolutely amazing for breakfast and brunch, and if you're lucky they have events on with live music some evenings. Cakes are also fantastic. Big love to Muxima!

Excellent cafe. Lovely food, and a very chilled-out atmosphere. Staff very friendly.

Amazing staff and lovely lovely food and exceptional cappuccino!!! You won't be disappointed. A little jewel in Bow. Totally recommended. Enjoy

Isaac and Leila have exceeded expectations - the cafe is a hub for East Enders from all walks of life, and really serves the community. Deservedly a firm neighbourhood favourite (and it's not even close).

What a gem to arrive on the Roman road. The pop up supper clubs and evening dj sets and cultural talks make this more than a standard cafe. Prices are reasonable and the almond croissant/brioche pudding is amazing - I just wish they'd make it without banana more often.

Relaxed, sociable, and part of a vibrant community. The Breid and pastries are unique and recommended without reservation. A homely oasis in London.

Great cafe. Great coffee, great food, great staff, great decor - it's great!
