We are a café, plant shop and gallery in the heart of East London
Woolidando opened in March 2018 and was born from a desire to combine great food and drink with a love for nature and art.
We have partnered with some of the best suppliers in London and the UK, bringing you speciality coffee from Ozone Coffee Roasters in Old Street and a wide range of teas and infusions by Chash, The Fine Tea Co. Our organic pastries are delivered daily, fresh from our bakers in North London, whilst our sourdough bread is comes from Breid Artisan bakers just a couple hundred meters down the road. For our drinks, we use the highest quality Brades Barista milk, an un-homogenised milk from Jersey cows living in “freedom-to-choose” conditions in Lancashire, and we offer Bonsoy, coconut and oat as our milk alternatives.
Our hand-picked range of houseplants are generally selected for their charm and ease of care. However, for the serious collector, we frequently stock rare varieties chosen for their distinctive beauty and unusual qualities. We change stock regularly and source rare plants in limited numbers - follow our instagram for the latest plant drop or get in touch with any requests.
We run periodic exhibitions in our gallery space in aid of charities relevant to the artwork and their contributors. We have close ties with many artists in the film and games industries, and we aim to serve as a platform for showcasing their personal and less known works.
Our focus is on community and sustainability. Everyone is welcome and we do our best to ensure that all our products are ethically sourced and traceable. Our goal is to create a space where people and ideas can converge to raise awareness of social and environmental issues both locally and across the globe through the use of art and conversation.
