A tropical paradise in the middle of Hackney, Unripe Banana was opened in 2017 by bold and brilliant Flora, who designed a vibrant, multifunctional space for her creative community. 

The relaxed pet-friendly upstairs cafe sells 100% vegan treats - you will find Borough 22 donuts served alongside smooth Five Elephant coffee, cold pressed juices, cookies from The Little Vegan Cookie Co and delicious filled croissants if you need more than a nibble. 

The retail space stocks the best dungarees around by Lucy + Yak which are worn by the friendly staff; after a browse, head downstairs to the Unripe gallery space - check here for current exhibitions. The space plays host to a range of events from life-drawing classes to solo exhibitions  and can be hired for private events. 

Thank you Unripe Banana for stocking Borough 22! 

We love supporting independent cafes...look out for our monthly peeks at the small businesses we work with and let us know where you go for your Borough 22 fix!
