Essential Vegan is a Brazilian-inspired vegan café and community hub which lies in the heart of Shoreditch, London. We’ve welcomed countless hungry customers since our opening last autumn and are now samba-ing our way through the summer.
We offer a mouthwatering selection of homemade food including juicy burgers, Brazilian bites, comforting classics and freshly baked cakes, plus a variety of hot and cold drinks.

THE LAST HUNTERS
Domenico Pugliese’s documentation of the Awá’s unique culture and environmental knowledge is both a powerful statement and provides invaluable testimony.
Without doubt the Awá-Guajá tribe are fighting for their survival against invasion by colonists and loggers who are rapidly depleting the natural resources on which this nomadic hunter-gatherer tribe depends for its existence. The situation is critical.
‘The Last Hunters’ is the result of a sensitively executed five-year project. The fragility of the Awá’s future is real. It is essential that we do not remain passive, that we continue the effort to make a vital contribution to the future of this tribe One which will be lived without the constant fear of losing their land, their loved ones and their unique way of life.
