Alongside the café there are two community rooms, which will be run by Community Links, a charity based at Barking Road in Canning Town.
Chairman of The Camden Society, Gerald Oppenheim, said: “The combination of this beautifully designed café and flexible community space will provide a great place to relax, eat and drink with everything from community classes, to yoga sessions, to training seminars, business breakfasts, weddings and parties.
“We aim to make the most of the training and employment opportunities which the café will offer to people with disabilities, as it will be an additional venue for in-work training of our apprentices.”
