Our pair of cafés are each unique but with common themes, not least the commitment to perfection in our coffee and our whole-foods kitchens.

Larder cafés operate a relaxed counter service and we do not take regular table bookings, though we’ve become known for our rough-cut afternoon teas for which bookings are required.

We offer private hire with catering at all venues and also cater off-site, please check our private hire page for more information.

The Larder


The original Larder, in the heart of Wanstead Village high street. Enjoy the full range of classic espresso-based coffees, or check out our all-new Filter Bar, with hand-brewed single origin roasts centre stage! We’ve just refreshed our menu so check out the new breakfast, brunch and lunch options.

We have a rotating range of craft beers for retail sale and to drink with your lunch, plus a selection of wines covering some less common grapes and styles alongside classics.

The shelves are now full of Christmas goodies from some fantastic small makers and producers, so if you need an indulgent stocking filler or the perfect gift for a foodie then come and have a browse.
