but so sad, this wonderful place will have to close in April 2015. They have been asked for an outrageous rent increase which they cannot afford. It is so lovely and chic. Coffee and cakes on the ground floor, retro clothes shop in the basement....More

Found this through the mobile app and gave it a go. Almost full but they found us two seats on a communal club style table. Very attentive staff and good selection of snacks. Music before we left. Slightly studied approach by the staff and most...More

Looks a mess from outside but good mix of stuff inside. Large selection of period but stylish clothes downstairs and cluttered but comfortable cafe room upstairs. Good cake tea coffee etc. mellow hospitable feel.

This place is a tad on the 'ultra hip' side, but with the kind of mood it produced, that's absolutely fine by me. We came in to escape the brick lane markets for 5 minutes, and were entranced by fantastic performances of french folk songs...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
