    With Autumn well and truly here, we’re loading up on vitamins and minerals in order to ward off any hint of a cold, and what better place than the innocent ‘5 for 5 cafe’ in Shoreditch, where diners enjoy 5 portions of fruit and veg, all for a fiver!

    The East London eatery launched last night with lots of jazz, apple trees and twinkling lights, but hurry, it’s only in situ for a week. From today until 8th October, glamorous guest chef Gizzi Erskine will be creating a delicious bespoke menu at The Tramshed (a grade 2 listed former power station). The innocent smoothie company’s aim is to show that eating healthily can be tasty and affordable.

    They’re aiming to serve 5000 people over the course of the week – which amounts to 25,000 portions of fruit and veg. There’s also a special kids menu and a handy takeaway hatch round the side where you can pick up a veg pot and smoothie if you’ve only time for lunch on-the-go. To book yourself a seat or find out a bit more go to
