The Flea PitCafe with a selection of light organic vegetarian dishes and cakes. While you settle down to a bite to eat you can also enjoy poetry and script readings, knitting circles, film screenings and art exhibitions that change every two to four weeks in The Pit - the bit down the back. On Sundays, this laid back artsy place offers a welcome break - as well as a good selection of micro brewed beers - away from the busy Columbia Road flower market.
