Top 10 cafes on Wedge

We Wedgers spend a lot of time in and out of local shops. Here are some of our favourite cafes.

Swan at The Globe, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Southbank: A new arrival to Wedge. This riverside cafe/bar is a lovely place to meet, sit and relax. A stupendous 25% off all food and drink this April with your Wedge Card, so this gives you only more reason to indulge.

London Review Bookshop, Bloomsbury: This bookshop filled with interesting book-finds also hosts talks, events and a little cafe. Clearly a good place to get smart and refuel. We love it. Plus 10% off books with your ole Wedge Card.

Tea Smith, Spitalfields: If you like them there teas, this is the place for you. Stock up on a wonderfully wide range and also let them make you a brew or two in their teahouse. 10% off, you lucky Wedgers.

The Tea Rooms, Stoke Newington: Another great tea loving cafe, this time in the independent enclave of Stokey. Half price tea or coffee with your cake plus, if you take a fancy to their retro tea ware, you’ll get 10% off.

Scooterworks, Lower Marsh, Waterloo: Cosy and rather cool, excellent coffee and bring-your-own food policy makes this a draw from miles around. We spend many a day having ‘meetings’ in here enjoying the lovely vibe. Great for parties as with a Wedge Card they’ll give you a free bottle of wine when you hire the space.

Living Space, Waterloo: A community run space that has a cafe, internet access and other useful programs in a beautiful light new building.
Wedge offer: 10% off your food & drink

Tutti’s, Lambs Conduit Street, Bloomsbury: A real local cafe with excellent homemade food, friendly staff and good coffee. A great spot in summer to sit outside or curl up in winter and chat to your neighbours. A variety of Wedge deals on offer.

Brill, Exmouth Market: We like cafes that shake it up a bit and what could be more natural partners than good coffee and good music? This little local cafe and music shop in the always interesting Exmouth Market is a great find.
Wedge offer: 10% off CDs

Cafe Gossip, Broadway Market: A veggie heaven with homemade food in an old house. Cosy, colourful and a good place to recharge.
Wedge offer: Half price tea with your cake, Mon-Fri

Chelsea Physic Garden, SW3: With spring so temptingly in the air we want to be enveloped in nature. These botanical gardens offer inner city peace and serenity, and some beautiful flowers too. Wedge offer: Concession rate admission of £4 (usually £7)

As much as we’d like to, we can’t spend all our time sitting on our derrieres sampling the delights of the cafes on Wedge as there seems to be rather a lot of work to do! Here is a list of all of the cafes on Wedge for you to search out and enjoy. Let us know what you think!
