Indulgence Review

In food on February 24, 2015 at 9:06 pm

A while ago there was a little pop-up cafe in the council run shop space on Hoe Street. It was called Massis tea and they did lovely tea-lattes.

Well they seem to have teamed up with a new cafe further up the street…

Not very flashy, but functional.

We’d walked past Indulgence a number of times on the way to Delice but it was always shut on a Sunday. Eventually we dropped in on a Saturday as the wonderful Windmill is now gone 😦

The inside is smart and kept simple. No shabby chic for a change. They have a few bits of decor and lots of identical retro looking radios.

We actually have been twice and each time the staff were friendly, especially the older ‘mum’ lady who even gave us a hug the second time! The food is nice, and reasonably priced. My partner is very taken with the french onion soup. I’ve had a baked potato and a ciabatta; neither thrilling, but nice.

However what I do love is the Massis chai-lattes.

And they make a little logo on top!

I’ve had the ginger bread and vanilla versions and they are lovely. Like having dessert and tea together.

We also had lovely cake, procured from the local bakers Aura Rosa. The biscuits are from another local bakery, Crumbs. And some of their bread is produced in Walthamstow too. I love how they try and be invested in the local economy.

There is also free wifi. Always a winner.

Indulgence seems to be popular with parents and I suspect it had taken the niche formerly inhabited by Daisys before it went glum.

And the better news is they hope to open on a Sunday when they can get staff to cover it!
