There is a new mystery vegan cafe near my house on Allen Road - just opposite the Shakespeare. I say mystery because it has no name and doesn’t exist on Google Maps.
It does, however, sell very nice coffee and bread, as well as simple food. Yesterday I had aubergine mezze with gherkins on toast, and a salad, whilst eagerly reading extracts from Ottolenghi’s new book, Jerusalem, in the Guardian Weekend. There was even leftover mezze for later.
