Karamel is a unique vegan space in the heart of Wood Green’s Cultural Quarter and is the centre point of the Chocolate Factory studios, where you can enjoy good quality fresh, affordable and hearty breakfasts, and world food lunchtime buffets, inspired by our top chefs’ travels. Our highly acclaimed all day vegan Sunday roast has been going down a storm for over 3 years, and we have recently won the Time Out London 2018 Award for best restaurant in Wood Green.
Karamel is a vegan haven for arts, performances, music and food. By day we are a café/bar with local artist exhibitions, and by evening (Thu-Sat) we host eclectic and varied music and performances with a range of vegan food to match the evening.
We aim to satisfy the most critical beer drinker with our offering of a good range of quality and refreshing craft beers from local or micro-breweries on tap.
