Charming tea, coffee and cakes at Daisy's on 176 Hoe Street, close to the EMD.   Mary, May 2011

Good honest fry-up nosh available at Monoux Café on Chingford Road near the Dog and Duck. Monoux also have a café on Billet road.  Pat, May 2011

On 292 Hoe Street there is a large coffee shop, named Rio's. All of their staff are really lovely, friendly & happy people, which makes all the difference. They charge £1.50 for a very nice cappuccino All their food is very reasonable & nothing too much trouble for them.  S, June 2011
