Disrupting POP UP & festival food expectations -The Café Clichés EXperience


Think True Romance; Notting Hill Cafes; American Diners and a touch of Boheme. Cafe Cliches is the ultimate symphony between FOOD & MUSIC. With premium twists on cafe classics we will launch POP UP's in Shoreditch followed by festivals and a further sites in SOHO and local neighbourhoods. This is cafes for artists, and the like, giving an all day dining experience from breakfast, through lunch and evening with music to boot with a real community feel.

Where it all began

Our journey begins in Shoreditch with a venue that is perfectly on brand. Serving bacon and scallop rolls for breakfast, pastries and local coffee (and 3 variations of Bloody Mary at the weekend if you are up for it).

The bell rings at 19.30 each evening as our Savoury Cornettoes are prepared and served ahead of our evening offering. All if this is combined with seasonal outbursts of raclette, Clichés burgers, peach and prosecco risotto and truffled burrata, and a kouign-amann vanilla sandwich to finish.

Our aspiration runs from a popup café in Shoreditch to Archer Street, SoHo, in early 2024, as well as other local sites in between. Aligned with our London Popups we will be present at the biggest UK festivals in the upcoming years. Do not be surprised if our van or electric bike pops up near you!

You can order a popup café experience for your event, gathering, or celebration, giving your visitors something a little different to try. We have organised popup catering in Shoreditch, SoHo, and a range of other sites across London. Contact us to organise a food and music popup experience at your event.








Our popup café experience gives a great alternative for festival goers, with gourmet food at accessible prices. We're totally cashless and contactless, enabling Covid-safe transactions, and our business is built with sustainability in mind. Our meal kits come with minimal, non-plastic packaging, which will be collected and recycled or composted responsibly.
