Quiz: When is a ‘bubble’ both a cup of tea and coffee?

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in News | Comments Off on Quiz: When is a ‘bubble’ both a cup of tea and coffee?

Answer: When it's Bubble Tea from Brew Box as they are the latest addition to our growing chain of independent cafes in London to share their wall space to celebrate the artworks with their customers. Based at 120 Islington High Street, N1 8EG (a short walk from Angel station, next to Cotsworld Outdoor Shop towards Camden Passage), it is opened by two big-hearted childhood friends, Albert and Eric. Bubble Tea is made up of two parts, the tea which comes in a variety of appetizing and exotic flavours, and the large tapioca pearls that have a 'gummy bear' texture. Together you get a cool and refreshing beverage that's also fun to drink. They offer more than 15...

Here's just some of the buyers with big hearts and who love art.

Posted by on Mar 21, 2014 in News | Comments Off on Watford: The new Broadway?

They produced and performed in a variety show (Highlights Watford) that was held just this week (19/3), with all ticket sales donated to us. How amazing is that? A very first for Cafe Art! Together with two artists (James and Ray) and armed with a selection of artworks, we headed up to Watford. Not only were we treated to a really enjoyable evening of entertainment comprised of dance, music &...
