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

Delicious afternoon tea in the company of adorable cats that live in the café.

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...

The Baring

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!

Honest Burgers

The Honest Burger cocktails are absolutely fantastic and the staff are exceptionally friendly too!

Finsbury Avenue Square Market

Finsbury Avenue Square Market

Every other Tuesday there is a wonderful artisan market with everything from cheese and wine stalls, haggis toasties and Japanese food, to the more standard but delicious cakes, cookies and doughnuts!

Pho House

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.

Geffrye Museum

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!

Ozone Coffee Roasters

Ozone Coffee Roasters

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

London Fields Lido

London Fields Lido

Perfect for a fun day out, especially in the summer, this outdoor pool in Hackney's London Fields is one of London's last remaining lidos. It is open all year round and is, of course, heated. Why not grab lunch from either one of their two cafes after an exciting dip?!

Quaker Street Coffee & Bubble Tea

Quaker Street Coffee & Bubble Tea

Very good coffee and bubble tea for the children.

"After excavating under his house on Mortimer Road for 40 years up to 20 metres in each direction, William Lyttle or known affectionately as 'Mole Man' was finally taken to court by Hackney Council."

Shoreditch's equally trendy neighbour, Hoxton has a well established arts and entertainment scene.

Nick Batten

Shoreditch is to London now, what King's Road was in the '60s.
