“A hidden gem off Bow Road near the Olympic Park”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Down a hidden side alley, this is a great little coffee shop in the old Nunnery, now part of Bow Arts. Excellent coffee, bagels, croissants, pastries - always really fresh. They also do hot snacks and some simple meals. There are seats outside if it's warm enough. Lovely friendly atmosphere and access to the gallery which has some interesting exhibitions. If you carry on down the alleyway, there are some very pleasant gardens with a children's playground, also accessible via Fairfield Road. I am a regular visitor here. Open Tuesday-Sunday.
