We continue our residency at the atmospheric underground tunnels of House of Vans London (Leake Street entrance, SE1 7NN), located under Waterloo station, but this time you will be dining in a skate park!! Join our communal tables, experience Burmese hospitality and understand what's happening in the region, make new friends and even win prizes with our quiz.

Conflict Café Myanmar runs in partnership with Eatwith, House of Vans London and Cult Events.

House Rules: This is not just any pop-up, this is Conflict Café. Be ready to sit down and ‘break bread’ with strangers and strike up a conversation!

Profits from Conflict Café go towards supporting International Alert’s work building peace in Myanmar.

Travel Tip: Easiest route to find House of Vans London is via Waterloo Rail Station. Take Exit 1 located next to platform 1, turn right, and walk straight down Station Approach Road. Take the set of stairs to your left into Leake Street and walk towards the other end of the tunnel. House of Vans' entrance is located on your left hand side.

What is Conflict Café?

Conflict Café celebrates the power of food to break down barriers and get people talking.

As seen in the Guardian, Independent and Evening Standard, Conflict Café is the pop-up that serves peace through food.

Diners join communal tables, where they are treated to a feast of traditional dishes from countries that have experienced conflict around the world. Great food is at the heart of Conflict Café, but it is also an informative and interactive dining experience where you get to know more about the country highlighted.

Established in 2014, Conflict Café has served over 1,000 diners, highlighting cuisines and conflicts from Sri Lanka to Colombia, Syria to Myanmar.

There is something very significant about the act of bringing people together around a table to eat, whatever their differences: the very act of cooking and sharing food is a unifying one. It's true that this is not the only tool for peace, but it is a step in the right direction and a great reason to support Conflict Café.
