Beigel Bake

This infamous 24/7 bagel bakery is a firm favourite with both locals and tourists - the salt beef bagel is certainly hard to beat!

Cereal Killer Café

Much talked about, this place epitomises all that is trendy in the Shoreditch area!


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


A Mark Hix restaurant with a huge Damien Hurst cow and chicken on display, created specifically for Tramshed! The menu is simple but very tasty!


The most sophistication you can find between two kebab shops on a roundabout. A speakeasy-style cocktail bar underneath the adjacent shops, serving the best cocktail creations in town.

Casa Blue

Try the goldfish bowls in this trendy cocktail bar on Brick Lane...

Brick Lane

You'll be spoilt for choice along Brick Lane when it comes to curry houses! The deals that some restaurants offer are out of this world...


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

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...

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.


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...


Quirky interiors and crazy cocktails, this restaurant-cum-club is great for a number of different occasions.

Ozone Coffee Roasters

Proper coffee in warehouse-style surroundings and food too, served from breakfast through to dinner.

Spitalfields Market

Great places to eat, loads of quirky gift ideas and a venue for all kinds of events, including a pop-up hotel.

The Breakfast Club

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