Welcome to the Blighty India Cafe in Tottenham. We are the second of the Blighty commonwealth cafes.
Here we take inspiration from the great commonwealth powerhouse of India, championing it through our decor, menu and atmosphere. Although the ambience of the venue is centred around Indian culture we endeavour to use produce from all commonwealth countries – we source our coffee from Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Papua New Guinea and of course, India!
Here you can socialise, work and create. We have a studio space upstairs that holds a range of events throughout the week including yoga classes, life & portrait drawing and mindfulness courses where everybody is welcome. Next door we have the ‘hub’ of work spaces which hosts a range of local companies and freelancers who are able to work in a home away from home amongst the creative, open and relaxed atmosphere of Blighty. So whether you want to hot-desk with us a couple of days a week, hire a permanent desk or have a meeting over a cup of coffee, we’re definitely the place for you.
We have a variety of healthy, nutritious and delicious dishes that take inspiration from across the commonwealth to ensure that we have a lot of interesting options. These include ‘The Winston’ Full English, Bengali Breakfast Bombay Hash or The Full Aussie. We have toasties, freshly baked cakes & muffins and in house baked sourdough loaves for sale.
Above our cafe is a shared workspace for those of you that can’t stomach another 7 hour Starbucks stint. An open, relaxed space with free wifi, 24 hour access, a private kitchenette, music and a discount on our brunch menu, it’s the best place for you to work & create.
We know that not everybody is the same and that different things work for different people so we have a number of options for you so that you can get the most out of Blighty Workspace, please contact surinder
We have a number of events going on here in the studio space and downstairs in Blighty Cafe. If you have an event you’d like to host or to hire out the space then get in touch to let us know about it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquires you might have.
