Excellent lunch

Visited this little cafe on a cold but sunny November day. It was quite busy there but we managed to get a table. Well organised, efficient, good food - would recommend.

Rented a bike for 3 hours to tour some of the canal paths along the Greenway. Excellent service. Adjusted the seat three times until it was just right. Good prices compared to other London bike rental.

This is a nice place when out and about in Olympic park. It serves good coffee and snacks. It could get a bit busy over the weekends. The view out to the park is nice from the porch.

Luckily for us this cafe is across the Olympic Park from us. What a treat. Great for Sunday Brunch or nice coffee and cake. The food is amazing and freshly cooked while you wait. The staff are helpful, friendly and fun. Good value, good food and nice view. What more could you ask for?

Something changed in what used to be a great spot of the east london. Owner behind the till really unpolite to costumers and even to his own staff....sausages frozen and uneadible....coffees are decent depending on who's preparing them...will never go back and wouldn't suggest it to my worst enemy

I visited The View Tube one sunny Sunday morning for breakfast on the recommendation of a friend. Upon arrival I was greeted by a small hoard of spandex clad part-time cyclists who were gearing up for a weekend ride around London. Now is a good time to mention that The View Tube serves a dual purpose as both a secluded... More

The View Tube is the perfect alternative to riding 'Boris Bikes' around the Olympic park. If you don't want to stop and start to avoid the costs or prefer a whole day out cycling, these cycles are perfect - complete even with basket to hold our Westfield shopping! What's more, we had an absolutely GORGEOUS cake - chocolate muffin with... More

On the Greenway at the Southern end of the Olympic park is an odd yellow building. It was built partly as an observation tower for people to view the construction of the Olympic stadium. What is hidden inside is a really excellent cafe! Don't expect comfort or classy decorations, do expect a bit of mess and a fair number of... More
