Where do De Beauvoir Town locals go?

Salvation in Noodles

Super tasty Vietnamese noodle salads and pho on the borders of Dalston.

Bread and Butter

Serving the best breakfasts in Dalston, lovely fresh organic food, amazing juice and great coffee. The tortilla with loads of cheese is a great hangover cure!

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

The De Beauvoir Deli Co.

This is a fab little deli with homemade cakes, tonnes of local produce and some really great cheese! There's always people sat outside enjoying a sandwich and a coffee...


I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

Geffrye Museum

If you can't face the crowds at London's bigger museums, head to this place for a quieter and nicer experience. This museum is all about the home throughout the centuries and the café sells delicious cakes too!

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!

Newington Green Fruit and Vegetables

There isn't a vegetable or a piece of fruit that you cannot buy here. Amazing presentation and CHEAP!

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.


The only place in London to do a bacon doughnut... They also have amazing chicken and lunchtime deals in the week!


An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

The Breakfast Club

Always busy, with great breakfasts throughout the day, as well as lunch and dinner menus.

Belle époque

Delicious bread and cakes that look too perfect to eat!

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

"The first canned food was patented by a merchant in Hoxton called Peter Durand in 1810. Sadly the invention of the can opener was still fifty years away and they had to be opened by a hammer!"
