Spacious cafe/restaurant/bar in Shoreditch. During the day people come for coffee & to work. It's a nice area to hang out & socialize, enough space for table football, table tennis, and for party later on. We ordered the chicken burger and the vegetarian fajitas meal...More

Had breakfast here a few weeks ago on a recommendation from a friend and it was very good. Healthy options as well as more trad options. Good coffee, friendly service and a nice atmosphere all round (busy but not crammed).

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
