Craving Coffee is an independent family owned business & licensed café in Tottenham, founded by local residents Matt & Rachel Ho.
We are committed to working with local traders and suppliers to source everything we need -
from our specialty coffee & tea, craft beer, boutique wine and cocktail range, to our seasonal brunch and lunch offering.
We are open 7 days to eat in and take away, with Tottenham Social food pops ups every Thursday – Saturday night.
Our café is host to monthly art exhibitions from the local creative community and we are also
available for private hire if you’re looking for a unique space to host a special event.
We also have a mobile cart that is available for events, markets and festivals.
Matt Ho fell in love with coffee ever since buying his first home espresso machine in 2001.
After spending several years learning to make the perfect cup whilst working as a barista
to supplement his hairdressing income, he traded in his scissors to work in the coffee industry full time.
From 2010 onwards he worked as a roaster, production manager, barista trainer and account manager.
Rachel Ho on the other hand had years of experience running club nights, gigs, tours, exhibitions and festival work.
Combining her passion for promoting, planning and making sure people have a good time
with Matt’s intricate knowledge of making the perfect cup, Craving Coffee was born in May 2014
as a humble mobile cart servicing the local Harringay and Tottenham Green village markets.
Luckily Rachel loves a good cup of coffee, as she’d soon find herself surrounded by coffee geeks full-time;
in September of the same year Craving Coffee they opened
a fully-fledged licensed café and event venue in Gaunson House.
Things have only grown since then and Craving Coffee has enjoyed over five years of serving locally influenced food,
specialty coffee & tea, wine, beer and cocktails, not to mention hosting hundreds of creative and food led events
with a focus on supporting the vibrant local community we are so proud to be a part of.
Oh, and our mobile cart can still be seen travelling around London
offering our catering services for any occasion large or small!
Craving Coffee aims to bring local people, products and passion together to deliver the best experience possible for our customers.
We are committed to quality and sustainability and are proud to be an accredited UK Living Wage Employer.
