Lush Oxford Street opens new vegan cafe
Nestled amongst the bath bombs, Lush reveals instagrammable cafe with direct views overlooking London’s Oxford Street.
Alongside new product launches and creative experiences across three floors, Lush’s number one shop and Spa in the world, Lush Oxford Street has reopened with their first ever in-store vegan coffee shop, Plant Works Cafe run by Send Coffee.
Prepare to get snap happy, this cafe is made for ‘The Gram’…
Nestled amongst the mountains of Lush bath bombs on the first floor and with direct views overlooking London’s Oxford Street, Plant Works Cafe is a hot new opening to have on your radar. Alongside a delicious range of hot drinks, Plant Works Cafe will also be serving a range of vegan pastries, cakes and snacks.
Plant Works Cafe coffee beans come from Send Coffee, who use the profits from the beans to help young people who have Special Needs & Disabilities, find work and equitable treatment. The coffee shop also offers rare and interesting coffees brewed in speciality filter style, each with an interesting and inspiring origin story, including farmers who have overcome huge challenges this year.
As covid-19 restrictions lift, Plant Works will be introducing edible take away cups, and charging slightly more for customers who don’t bring their own reusable cup to make this sustainable. There are also plans to trial a cup swap scheme with Lush branded Circular & Co cups.
In accordance with Government guidelines, Plant Works Cafe is currently offering a takeaway service only.
