Review: InSpiral Café in Camden Town

On a rainy day in April, I needed to get out of the flat, despite the torrential weather. I can only stay cooped up for so long, so I braved the London gloom and spent a few hours in Camden with my friend George, who is always happy to try out vegan foods. He’s sort of my guinea pig. 

InSpiral is a 100% vegan and partly raw café with a strong ecological ethic. Everything is made freshly in the café. They are slightly pricy for a student, so eating here is a treat for me, but the quality of their food is worth every penny. 

They offer a wide variety of drinks, snacks and takeaway products. They even sell products in several organic and health shops around London. 

Their ice creams are to die for! I once had the pleasure of trying the mint chocolate chip one. If only I’d had enough cash on me to buy myself a scoop on this day… I’d love to try the dandelion coffee amaretto ice cream some day. 

I ordered the Raw Sunfood Burger out of curiosity (a raw burger?!) with a side of salad, tabouleh and sprouts. Turns out I’m not a fan of tabouleh or the sauces, which I unfortunately slathered all over my salad and consequently ruined it. Before that, it was quite lovely. As for the burger, I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised: it was nothing like your traditional burger–it was better! I’m not sure what they put in there, but it was delicious. I finished it, naturally. 

Dessert! The part I was most excited about. 

George opted for a vegan lasagna, I think (neither of us paid attention to the name, he just told the waitress to “surprise him”, in true George-like fashion), because it was exquisitely cheesy. Thankfully he wasn’t very hungry so I got to finish a considerable chunk of his lunch. Sides included some curry, rice and roasted veggies. 
 Ta-da! Raw chocolate. It isn’t the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted, but it was creamy and hit the right spot. All seven of them. Yum.

Now it’s your turn. Where is your favourite (vegan) café/restaurant/takeaway?

  1. Wow your meal looks so delicious. My favorite café is here in Québec, Canada is a raw food restaurant called ''the singing goat''. If ever you come here in Québec your really have to stop there!!


  2. I'm still a bit annoyed that I got told off for not finishing the food… It was rather rude of them! D:
    But I have to admit I was very happy with the food I was surprised with.
