My London WAFFLE pop up: 08.09.16

Waffle Lion, maker of delicious savoury and sweet waffles, is popping up at The Common E2 on Old Bethnal Green Road for one night only on 8th September.

Waffles will be paired with prosecco, wine, spirits and local craft beer all served up in a bright and lively communal space. No bookings will be taken for the popup, so head down from 6pm for dinner (first come first served).

Everyone is welcome! Bring along your family and friends to enjoy Waffle Lion’s tasty menu at The Common E2.

About Waffle Lion

The man behind Waffle Lion, Thorne Addyman, was brought up by antiquarian booksellers. He wanted to bring together food and books and decided waffles were a perfect match! However, his mum wanted proof that he could make and sell waffles before considering the risk of waffle batter spattered all over her shelves.

Waffle Lion is a new venture that kicked off in 2016 with a week long pop-up over the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival in mid-Wales. Thorne now plans to test his secret waffle recipes on the tough London crowds.

About The Common E2

Having opened in 2014, The Common E2 is a cafe with an architectural studio downstairs, blurring the boundaries between private office and public cafe.

It’s open everyday from 9am – 5pm and serves up brilliant coffees, breakfasts and lunches.
