Eat in the Global Generation Skip Garden Cafe

Your author paid a visit to the Global Generation Skip Garden Cafe in King's Cross at the end of last week, and enjoyed a reasonably-priced lunch in a yurt in the garden just to the North of the new(ish) Central Saint Martins University of the Arts London buildings. The Skip Garden is an organic vegetable garden in skips and movable containers on an old bus car park in a quiet corner of what is one of the biggest development sites in Europe, and its cafe is open to all Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am - 4pm and the first Saturday of each month.


The cafe offers tea, filter coffee and home baked cakes, and lunchtime favourites including vegetable soups and stews, vegetable sides, and specials like macaroni and cheese, and as today is that first Saturday of the month, the 'pop-up cafe' opening will be offering an expanded menu. You can choose to eat and drink at tables outside the cafe, or among the plants used to prepare your food in the Skip Garden, or even - in case of inclement weather - in the cosy on-site yurt which sometimes boasts a roaring fire in its wood burning stove.
