Happy Kitchen is a new café-come-organic food shop right next to London Fields station. What makes it really special does not immediately meet the eye (unless you read a bit more about them on the blackboards that line the walls), the owners try to source all ingredients locally as far as possible, reducing environmental impact and supporting smaller, local suppliers.
Situated in a converted railway arch, it serves delicious coffee and home baked cakes, using only ingredients that are in season. Customers are encouraged to bring their own containers to buy dried grains, nuts and fruits. The playful interior reflects their eco-consciousness, chairs are upholstered with re-used hessian coffee sacks and organic vegetables are on display in wooden apple crates.
