After running a series of pop-ups across east London, including at My Neighbours the Dumplings and Fount Hackney, veggie cafe Hara has just opened a permanent spot in Haggerston. Run by Kiara and Tess, who between them have worked at Workshop Coffee, The Clove Club, Fifteen, Sketch and St John, Hara is all about nourishing and sustainable food – in eastern medicine ‘Hara’ is the energetic centre of the body.
The menus change regularly but you can expect brekkie dishes like french toast with pear, raspberry and vanilla ginger yoghurt; carrot bread with endive mushrooms and fried eggs; and lentils on sourdough with harissa, tomato and crispy kale, with split pea dahl, rice noodle salads and veggie wraps coming on the afternoon. So if you’ve been looking for a new lunch spot near the canal, this is it.
