Cafe Kick reviews



By Andrew M.

Cafe Kick could do with a kick up the back side. The other day when I was there I had one of their sandwiches and it was stale. The beer also had a funny taste. Come on Cafe Kick sort it out.


By Mike R.

Seemed like a nice place but service was gobsmackingly rude. After waiting 15 minutes at an outside table (on a slow Saturday early afternoon) and then enquiring at the bar about drinks, was told I had "no common sense" for not guessing there was no table service outside. Insulting prospective customers is a strange way to run a business. Don't reward their contempt for customers - there are other excellent places on Exmouth Market (Caravan, for example).

Café kick is fantastically unpretentious venue. A real independent gem. The atmosphere is superb and the beer is great. The whole place could do with a clean, as could most of the punters, but that adds to the experience. It’s the sort of bar you see in Spanish and French cities frequented with hairy arse students.


By R P.

Aboslutely kicking place with cool and friendly bar staff. The place attarcts a very decent crowd and is a great place to enjoy a drink with a group of friends. Sit outside on the pedestranised street or inside. If you are ever near Angel, check this place out!

Café Kick is a sports bar with a difference – it’s girl-friendly and renowned for its keenly contested table football.

The Venue
Sport bars don’t have to be all slick leather and manly minimalism: Café Kick brings a quirky, retro and cute edge to the category thanks to its clever decor. If the table football tables take centre stage in this small rectangular venue, your eyes may wander towards the walls: covered with football paraphernalia, they include everything from old match programmes to Portuguese team scarves and signed photos. The furniture includes a mix and match of retro wooden chairs for two, with larger tables positioned opposite the bar, which is, just like the rest of the space, colourful, slightly eccentric and very fun.

The Atmosphere
Whilst football is king, Café Kick actually shows all sports, from rugby tournaments to the Tour De France. The table football steals the show though, and there are even tournaments where you will see teams frantically trying to top the league. You can even expect to be drafted in if players are missing. The human spillage outdoors is just as sociable and conversations spark easily, notably hardly any of them are sports-related.

The Food
Like it’s sister venue Bar Kick on Shoreditch High Street, Café Kick has a strong Portuguese influence, which is evident in its tapas menu. You can choose a board (£7-£8.50), a platter (£16-£20) or individual tapas (£2.50-£6). Options include sardinillas con pan (sardines on bread), calamari, chorizo with cider, melon and Parma ham in port marinade, or Portuguese-style broad beans in coriander vinaigrette.

The Drink
The drink list, fashionably printed on vintage paper, gives away the fact that Café Kick is not your typical European sport bar: the long list of cocktails (£7) would be considered way too refined on the other side of the channel. You can pick from a list of twisted martinis like the Picasso (pisco, martini rosso, gomme and orange zest), their own long and short drinks and some classics. The list of beers (quite pricey at £3.10-£4.50) is just as extensive and it includes Duvel, Hoegaarden, Vedett, Brahma, Desperados, Krombacher, Windhoek, Cusquena, Sagres, Super Bock, Cruzcampo, Estrella Dam and more. The list of wines (£3.60-£5 for a glass or £14-£45 for a bottle), spirits (£3.20-£4.60) and hot drinks (£1.40-£2.10) is just as exhaustive.

The Last Word
Café Kick nails a very effective recipe: sport rules but not to the point where non-sports fans are put off. Whether you come over to watch or take part in a match, you are guaranteed to have a great time.

A friend and I recently had a birthday here and we have vowed never to enter this establishment again. Not only were the staff rude but communication with the manager was extremely unhelpful and unprofessional. I suggest that if they want to conitue to be in the hospitality industry they should read the definition of 'hospitable'!

Cute little bar on one of London's best kept secrets - Exmouth Market. Great vibe, amazing cocktails and good selection of bottled beers, could do with sorting out the toilet situation though as the queues are ridiculous on busy nights, and a bit of a clean wouldn't go a miss either.
