Visit the Crystal Café


The Crystal café is a great place to be in London. The award winning café overlooks Royal Victoria Dock and serves delicious home-made salads from local suppliers, bistro-style sandwiches, cakes baked on-site and cooked food.

At the Crystal café our focus is on outstanding quality and the principles of responsibility, sustainability, health and well being. Wherever possible, we ensure our milk is organic, our eggs are free range and our key ingredients are seasonal. We work hard to reduce food miles with our suppliers, supporting UK farmers and producers.

Best practice is exercised for food sourcing and preparation, and all menus are delivered with skill and passion. And if there is a little left on your plate, it will be turned into compost in our community garden outside the Crystal.
