Cake Hole Café nestling in the heart of Shoreditch is a wonderful venue to host your private function. We are open for bookings between 8 or 25 Monday through to Saturday, if you have a smaller number let us know and we will see what we can do. Unfortunately, we do not take booking for Sundays between 8.30am and 5pm.
We regularly host Birthdays, Hen Parties, Baby Showers and afternoon teas for office parties or gatherings.
We offer a number of options but the most frequent for the events list above is based on private hire of the venue for two hours. We charge an additional £7.75 PP for each additional hour. There are three set menus to pick from. The venue and food will be ready for your arrival at your chosen time so that you and your guest can maximise your time together.
The three Set Menus are as follows;
Set menu 1 – £14. 50 per Head Afternoon tea sandwich; Ham & Cheese, Smoked Salmon or Cucumber 2x Scones with Cream & Jam Infinite tea.
Set Menu 2 – £16.50 per head An afternoon tea sandwich; Ham & Cheese, Smoked Salmon, or Cucumber 1 slice of cake; Victoria Sponge, Coffee & Walnut or Lemon Drizzle, (other options can be requested). Infinite tea.
Set Menu 3 – £18.50 per head Afternoon tea sandwich; Ham & Cheese, Smoked Salmon or Cucumber 1x Scones with Cream & Jam 1 slice of cake; Victoria Sponge, Coffee & Walnut or Lemon Drizzle, (other options can be requested). Infinite tea.
As the café is closed during private events, we can only serve filter coffee and this does not come in the above menus. Please notify us of your specific needs.
Additional Sandwich varieties include but are not limited to; Beef & Horseradish, Coronation Chicken, Roasted Peppers & Humus & Egg & Cress
For Menus 2 & 3 we make a selection of “mini” cakes each serving around 4/5 people. This way guest can sample a variety of cakes. However if one large celebration cake is what you would like we can accommodate that too.
We can accommodate most if not all dietary requirement but we have yet to be able to crack a really good Vegan scone, so if you’re a vegan Menu 2 is the best option for you. This does not apply to coeliacs though we can make gluten free scones. Please get in touch with us directly so we can make sure that you have the best info possible.
We have hosted more Hen Parties than most people have hot dinners and we have covered most requests from Vintage hair & Makeup, Willy Wonka & Speakeasy themed events to naked butlers. You name it we have accommodated it.
We pride ourselves on being able to provide you with a welcoming event space, which can be tailored to your needs. This removes inconvenience of having to host your event at home but lends itself to a warm and cosy environment.
We can organise the whole event for you if you wish. If you provide us with contact details of your guests and we will take it from there. Alternatively, we can liaise with the maid of honour and make sure everything is in order and can help add that personal touch.
As mentioned above we have contacts for Vintage Hair & make up plus a range of events; Modern Calligraphy, Fascinator workshops etc. or if you have something specific in mind that you’d like to host before or after you afternoon tea, let us know.
