About Maple & Co

We make eating good food a habit for all. Our food is joyful, colourful and vibrant, using seasonal ingredients that work together to provide powerful nutritional benefits. EAT HAPPY.

Maple & Co was created in 2015 for all the foodies out there who love to be around food but also need the energy to enjoy all the opportunities life has to offer. Energy comes from eating a balanced and nutritious diet that you can find in our 8 central London outlets.

We love eating the rainbow and this is reflected in our healthy breakfasts, hearty salads, gluten-free treats and juices and smoothies.

Maple & Co was created for people that are hungry for food and life!
