“A true pearl indeed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

Everything about this little gem is good. Simple and healthy menu, kind staff, seats outside and nice ambience inside. Good vibe, relaxing and hipstery, not too trendy. Good and fresh food for a good price: main meal with a pint about 16£. Always veggie options available. Love it!

“A real pearl indeed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

Hackney Pearl is an excellent restaurant and even though it's in the hipster heartland it's not even slightly pretentious, even with a clientele that's 99% Mac Book Air. The ingredients are clearly high quality, the chefs know what they're doing and the waiters are friendly and efficient. My only suggestion is there should be a vegetarian main course that isn't a salad. The house wine is excellent value and quality and all in all, we love it here. By far and away THE best place for food, drinks or coffee in the entire Hackney Wick. Nice one.

“Delicious food in a very friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

The Hackney Pearl is leading the regeneration of Hackney Wick, an area just over the way from the Olympic Park. It is a cafe bar that is open all day every day, serving a wide variety of food, including an extensive vegetarian menu and a full range of drinks in and out of doors in a quiet street a few yards from Hackney Wick Overground Station.

“Perfect for cake and coffee after shopping!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

Stopped by today frazzled from our trip to Westfireld Stratford, the most amazing chocolate brownie, so rich it was quite breathtaking! The coffee was lovely, and we were asked if we wanted our coffee made strong or not.
Very shabby chic, with a real vintage feel
Lovely place to just stop the world for a while
