Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

I found here today the best cappuccino that i have tried in London. Nice music and great service.

Good coffee and cakes, homemade meals, great music, and you can watch independent films, have a relaxing Reflexology or Indian Head Massage session or do a Yoga class during the week. Literally, Kafe 1788 is a wonderful place for our neighbourhood.

A casual little coffee shop (Haitian style) located at Crisp Street market. It perfectly delivers the unique multi-cultural atmosphere so typical for this east London place. Service is friendly, feels almost like at home

Great coffee and food, plus free events - film night, music etc. How a great cafe should be, a gem!

- C J

Delicious and great price! The coffee was great and the humus/roast veg toasties was incredible. You could easily pay twice the price anywhere else for the same delicious food.

- E R

Better than this only in heaven. The best coffee I've ever had and some wonderful breakfast. It's not cheap but the price is fair, worth every penny.

Come and Join US at our



PALOMA cocktail on Arrival

MARGARITA to close the evening


Tequila (Spanish pronunciation: [teˈkila] is a regional distilled beverage and type of alcoholic drink made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 km (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the central western Mexican state of Jalisco. Aside from differences in region of origin, tequila is a type of mezcal (and the regions of production of the two drinks are overlapping). The distinction in the method of production is that tequila must use only blue agave plants rather than any type of agave. Tequila is commonly served neat in Mexico and as a shot with salt and lime across the rest of the world.

K N DE Live @ Kafe 1788
Feb 24 @ 7:00 pm – Feb 25 @ 8:00 pm

K N DÉ is a singer-songwriter from London.
Her recent single, ‘Just Friends’ is her first single off her EP due to be released later this year.

K N DÉ’s style derives from a combination of musical influences growing up; from Soul, Pop and Blues that have made her the singer she is today. A recent review described K N DÉ’s voice as “Dripping with melancholy….. ” and as..”containing the raw unabashed ingredients of the blues”.

K N DÉ has long been a favourite with BBC Introducing, and has been featured on both the Ian Lee, Nesta McGregor and Edward Adoo radio shows.
K N DÉ’s unmistakeable vocals came to the attention of Tony Award and 3 times Grammy nominee Melba Moore’s promoters, who asked her to perform for Ms Moore.

Check out the new single ‘Just Friends’ by K N DÉ out now on all digital platforms for streaming and downloads.
