There is a daily special's board for both lunch and dinner, and a menu which includes some excellent main meals plus soup of the day, and small meals such as burgers, wedges etc. There is also a large selection of deserts. For examples, see my visits below or look at The Warehouse Cafe website %EXT%

Sun 13th Nov 2006 - Sunday Lunch
The Warehouse Cafe is now "Open All Hours" - 7 day a week for lunch / afternoon and every evening except Sunday. It's literally 5 minutes walk from Selfridges (under the railway arches and turn right), and now it's open more days I think I'll be eating there much more often.
We shared starters of whole bulb of roast garlic with cream cheese, various pates and some falafel, accompanied by bread. For main I had a hazelnut and mushroom nut roast with an apricot stuffing, accompanied by roast veg. It was all very very tasty! Plus, it's bring your own, so we had a very nice bottle of red, which would have cost a fortune anywhere else.
For sweet, we shared an extremely chocolately chocolate and rasbery torte-thingie, with coffees. Total cost for 3 starters, 4 mains plus 1 desert and coffee - about 12 quid a head!

Ate at the Warehouse Cafe, from their evening specials menu this time (as far as I know, they're open Thurs, Fri, Sat evenings now). As a starter I had very nice slow roasted garlic
with cream cheese (vegan or cow) as a starter - hmmmm. You get the whole bulb, about a dozen cloves, with the top sliced off and slowly roasted until the flesh is soft and light brown and delicious. Followed up with Gado Gado
, an indonesian salad of bean sprouts, red pepper, white radish and carrot strips, with spicy peanut sauce and crispy fried tofu. Loved that sauce! I mangaged to squeeze in a sweet of gooey but tasty pear and apply tart thingie, while my companions tucked into an ice cream bombe with cherries and a rich dark chocolate sauce.

Ate at the Warehouse Cafe
for the 1st time since it changed ownership. Had a very tasty feta and spinach pie with a hint of taragon accompanied by carefully balanced salads, each with it's own distinctive flavour including a light but flavoursome rice salad with a hint of sesame, thinly sliced red cabbage with orange juice. I'm certainly going back again.
