Time Out says

This homely café injects a rustic sweetness and sophistication into Camden Town. A glass counter is piled high with delectable own-made cakes and deep dishes of comfort food, and you’ll struggle to find better coffee locally. We enjoyed a huge slice of piping-hot chicken and mushroom pie packed with tender meat and chunky vegetables, and a mammoth portion of spinach lasagne; both came with fresh, imaginative salads. You can dine at artfully distressed wooden tables at the rear, the white walls flickering with shadows cast by candles and the roaring open fire, but there are also two other floors, the uppermost with a superbly intimate balcony terrace.

I wish I could give a half a star and that is purely for the incredibly rude owner. Though I won't because the waitstaff were nice and noticeably uncomfortable by the owners treatment of us. DO NOT GO HERE!!! I tried to arrange to have a few people meet up here. I called ahead of time and was told on the phone, by the owner, that she was too busy working in the kitchen to handle it. Each time she said she'd call me back. She never did. So I show up with my people - three to be exact - and was yelled at - YELLED AT - for not confirming the situation. Did I mention that she yelled at me as if I was a small child. In front of other baffled customers. Apparently she was going to be packed - SUPER BUSY - and asked us to leave. She literally threw away business. Sadly, had to listen to her confused waitstaff wonder why she was kicking out business. Completely insane. The servers kept apologising even though they had nothing to do with it. I'd been here before and it was nothing to shout about. Usually empty with ok food. But now, never again.

over priced, tiny portions and rude staff added up to my worst london restaurant experience. I'm unsurprised this place was empty. When I complained about my meal I was told I was wrong (!!!) and I didnt have an issue and I was told to 'stop shouting' (!!!) Rude, and mean to boot. Never again. (Just read the other review - same barman? - Dear owner , suggest you sack him pronto!)

I have been going to Tulepo Honey since it opened, some years ago. Until last night I would have suggested it as a place to go in Camden. But last night was an experience I shan't ever be repeating. I went with two friends for a post dinner chat. It seemed, as its a quiet cafe in the day, that it would be a place to have a drink and chat. The decor is great, and the candles on the tables give it real charm. Their cocktails were bad, a cosmopolitan and daquari, and they tasted the same, as each other, and there was no crushed ice in the daquari. The wine was exceedingly bad quality (I had a terrible hangover after 3 small glasses) but expensive. There were 10 people in the whole cafe, there was no one dancing, just people trying to chat. So I politely asked the barman if he could turn down the music a little. "No, the sound system is upstairs" This seemed very strange, but OK. But whilst the music couldn't go down, it could go up! As the music then got so loud the speakers were distorting we moved to the bar area, where we could hear each other- the music was a little quieter in there. To give you an idea of the volume, I was with two Canadians who can easily normally be heard, they both have loud voices, they were having to shout, and I still couldn't hear them. We weren't in a nightclub, but a cafe. Then to our surprise, the barman (the same one who told us we couldn't have the music lower) ran over to the stereo and turned down a track because he couldn't hear himself. So, a lier, and didn't care if he were found out. So, when the volume went up again I asked again, (we were by then the biggest group in the bar) he said no, (but this time didn't say that the stereo was upstairs) so I asked if the manager were there. So the owner comes over and shouts and screams at me! "I had no right to ask for the music to be turned down; who did I think I was; it was her bar; she got to choose how loud the music was; she didn't care what we wanted, she just wanted it to a be a funky place." The diatribe went on. Screaming. Not finding a solution, not treating me like a human being, but backing up her lying barman and screaming. Its a shame. It could be a fabulous venue for people who do want to talk into the night, as it suggests by its decor and menu. They have so many rooms they could have a quieter room and a louder room to accomodate the different desires of customers. But wait, she doesn't care about her customers, just herself. I would normally never write something like this, but this is a person that does not deserve to succeed in the service industry. Spend your money somewhere else in Camden. Anywhere else, hell,go across the road to Starbucks
