Get an up-close flavour of the East London arts scene. This gem of a café, tucked away in an industrial area, is popular with the local creative community due to the concentration of nearby studios and its stylish and funky décor, with its exposed brick walls, cinema seats and general shabby chic-ery. These two-floored premises look across the canal to the Olympic Stadium, making it a top spot to sip and stare dreamily into the distance. Try their delicious breakfast and a cup of their amazing flat white. The coffee is made from a constantly changing selection of beans roasted in house and brewed on a Synesso machine. The menu (seek out the large chalkboard that can be spied through the hole in the wall) offers a punchy range of breakfast and brunch dishes as well as home-cooked pies, cakes and brownies. Spiced Mumbai Eggs are a highlight, complemented by a coffee that’s deeply venerated, quite rightly, by the local brown bean botherers. Come here to soak up its friendly atmosphere and positive vibe, then take that caffeine euphoria with you into beautiful Victoria Park close by.
