Multiple visits to WA cafe
History and Background:

This post has taken me a while to write, fuelled by the ambitious plan that I will try out the whole entire menu before posting about it. WA cafe are continuously inventing new recipes and adding new things to the menu so this slightly hinders my not-so-achievable plan!

Look out for updates at WA cafe on its social media sharing sites, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and of course, its own website.

What I love about WA cafe is how authentic it feels, from its freshly made patisserie to traditional Japanese curry buns – it even has an automated door system exactly like in Japan! Bread and cakes are made fresh right out of the kitchen, you can even see them making it from the small kitchen window by the counter.
You can see some of the most common products they sell at WA cafe here: http://www.wacafe.co.uk/products

Opened by the owners of popular chain restaurant Hare & Tortoise, late 2014/ early January 2015.

Teriyaki Chicken – A soft white roll with caramelised onions and teriyaki chicken, dressed with mayonnaise.
Service: Since it’s a cafe, minimal interaction – but very nice friendly staff. Look out for the owner/ manager Yvonne, very welcoming.

Bits and bobs:

  • It’s not as far as it seems, and it’s certainly worth the travel. Right next to Ealing Broadway station, Central, District and Piccadilly line
  • Try not to over order – eating the whole menu in one day is impossible!
