Time Out has included it on their recent list of London's best park cafés and says "The café is still probably London's best place to enjoy a perfectly brewed coffee alfresco... the fry-ups are well known in the neighborhood and beyond, and the cakes splendid".

The cafe is inside the park by Crown Gate West, by the boating lake.

Victoria Park Reviews
We were visiting London for a few days, staying in East London, so we decided to check out Victoria Park. Beautiful grounds and many paths for walking. Nice pub in the park too! more »
I don’t recommend anyone to use the toilets by the pavilion cafe or eat in the cafe . The toilets are filthy!! more »
The flower beds are exquisite and the park is clean and friendly. I particularly like the canoeing and paddle boats on the lake as it gives you a chance to get close to some of the wildlife that inhabits the park. The Chinese style marquee is also lovely. Considering the large amount of people who visit the park it is still relatively private and quiet.
First time visiting the park. Had loads of fun with the kids. There was a guy blowing massive bubbles for them to chase. My little one loved it. Will definitely go again as there is so much to explore. We also want to walk along the canal. We love exploring. Would definitely recommend everyone to visit here.
