Abit About Us

At Yallah, sustainability, traceability, and quality are at the core of everything we do. All our coffee is single-origin, with trade happening directly with the farmer where possible. Our aim is for both the coffee and the farm to be celebrated for quality beans and pioneering practices. As a continuation of this ethos, the aim of our cafes is to be as environmentally and socially aware as they can be. We want to offer seasonal and local food, as well as showcase how good a cup of coffee really can be.

We focus on local, seasonal ingredients and suppliers. We love dynamic and thoughtful dishes, celebrating flavour and promoting British grown produce wherever possible. We are not strictly vegan but prefer plant-based food.
