At the heart of the community since 1889
We are a unique charity supporting creativity & wellbeing in Bethnal Green.
Our projects anchor us in the community, providing spaces for residents to eat, shop, learn, create, and enjoy a diverse cultural program.
The Gallery Cafe first opened its doors in 2006 and is St Margaret’s House’s largest in-house community project. As well as offering low-cost vegan dishes, locally-ground coffees, vegan sweet treats, and healthy juices, we also host an exciting programme of live events and monthly art exhibitions from up-and-coming artists.
During summer weekends, you can bask in the sunshine on our sun- trap terrace and back garden, whilst spending the rest of the year getting cosy inside the cafe with friendly faces and access to speedy wifi.
Not only have we won Best Cafe in Bethnal Green at the Time Out Love London Awards for the last three consecutive years, but all profits generated by Gallery Cafe go straight back into St. Margaret’s House, so by hanging with us, you’ll not only enjoy award-winning food, drinks and good vibes, you’ll also be helping to support the local community.
We don’t take bookings so just come along and also take card payments only.
