Help vegan Black Cat celebrate 5 years in London

Black Cat Hackney is more than a vegan café.

So much more.

It is a place to eat. It is a place to socialise. It is a space in which you can feel supported and celebrated, no matter who you are. It is a supportive space for independent vegan chefs to take risks with pop up events.

Black Cat is one a crucial component of the London vegan scene and an important supporter of local Hackney communities.

The food at the café is sensational and the people keeping it all running are even nice.

I hope you will join me in wishing Black Cat the very best as they celebrate their 5th anniversary. How incredible!

Black Cat is celebrating this huge milestone with an even huger party, including the launch of a new menu at their second location (yes, keep up friends!) kitchen takeover at Roadtrip & The Workshop on Old Street in Hoxton. This venue is a late night hangout with gorgeous cocktails and exciting events.

So much info to give you so let me start with the party aspect.
