Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I just passed a new vegan cafe at 503 Seven Sisters Road, just past the junction with St Ann's Road heading towards Manor House. Does anyone know when it is going to open?

oh this is exciting!

Breakilicious "ITAL FOOD" every time I go there its closed though..   

They see you coming :-)


It's opened! I went in there this evening and had a tea and delicious cake. It's opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 10am - 6pm, and Friday 10am to 11pm.  Tuesday to Friday it is doing teas, coffees, cakes and other sweet treats. On Fridays it is also doing hot meals, including pasta and patties. Very nice owners.


They're all just jumping on the Greggs bandwagon.

Yes, it's definitely Greggs that started this whole vegan trend.

Pretty sure you've got that the wrong way around Ian. Watching out of touch carnivore dinosaurs hate on vegans lolllllz! Literally ANYTHING to avoid having to face the truth that meat is bad and veganism is the future.

Someone recently said - 

What? Why do you care what other people eat ( Albert )? People you've never met. And further why do you care what other people eat to such a degree you go on a local community noticeboard to criticise them for exercising their own choices? 

They certainly did John and it was me. Unfortunately you've misunderstood the original point. And this one. Because they are they same point. Which is that people want to undermine, impugne the motives of, threaten with illness and generally stick their beaks in to vegan's dietary choices. So this example from Ian B accusing vegans of bandwagon jumping simply underlines the point. And indeed your comment does the same. Like I say literally ANYTHING. 
I'm not a vegan but regardless of whether a vegan's motivation is to reduce damage to the environment, reduce cruelty and death, become more healthy or yes even if it is to 'be cool' I cannot for the life of me see why anyone else consider's it their business or that it is anything other than a positive for all.

To be clear - I don't " hate on " vegans - I don't actually know any so that would be stupid.

But, I don't see how you can attack people for expressing doubt about people's (vegan) dietary choices while you think  you can refer to " out-of-touch carnivore dinosaurs ". That's a choice too.

Yes it would be stupid but in picking up on my comment and using my previous comment in an effort to (uncsuccessfully) try to make make me look hypocritical you're joining in. You're augmenting the trope that vegans and veganism is inconsistent, intellectually weak and generally not something to be respected.
When I say above 'I cannot for the life of me see why anyone else consider's it their business' of course I can see why. It's called cognitive dissonance. The ability to know a fact and still go about your business as if you do not know it regardless of the effect. It's an important human trait because were we to dwell on all the awful things we know in the world we wouldn't get out of bed in the morning but equally it's what allows people to take cocaine and use iphones despite what we know of the supply chain. It pretty much characterises our politics right now. Look at Michael Gove. 
We all know, deep down, that the arguments for veganism are indisputable and some people accept, reflect and change. But humans dont like to have their comfortable belief systems challenged and so lots of people don't change and some even double down and become aggressive or mocking of vegans as a way of denying the truth. And THAT's who I am referring to when I use the term "out-of-touch carnivore dinosaurs".
Some 'choices' are more valid for criticism than others is I guess what i'm saying and if a person cannot manage to find a way to improve their choices then fine but they certainly should be called out criticising others who have.
