Coffee by day, beer by night, food for thought

640East is a café, bar and kitchen constructed from upcycled shipping containers.

Our story began with two containers, measuring a total of 640 sq ft and located in East London. Now we are expanding throughout London, offering specialty coffee by day, beer by night, and food for thought. Find your nearest 640East here.


we don’t apologise for being independent - it’s at our core.

We are proud to be independent, open minded, and a little different in the best way possible. All of this influences the way and passion with which we serve our customers, design our spaces, and communicate with our surrounding community.


We cherish our relationships with local providers and other independents.

We have partnered with the local artisan coffee producer Caravan Coffee Roasters who sources and roasts the world’s best beans from single farms and speciality estates in Ethiopia, Colombia and Rwanda. We also hand select pastries from a range of local London suppliers, delivered daily.


Contemporary by design and the way we operate.

At 640East our values and services go hand in hand. We are vibrant and modular by design: our container bars boast large and open outdoor areas, as well as private dining and function rooms are available for hire in our Canary Wharf branch - the perfect setting to make a great event of every occasion.
