Where do Shoreditch locals go?

Ozone Coffee Roasters

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

Clutch

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

Fantastic breakfast dishes served throughout the day, but be warned, it gets very busy at the weekend, so expect to queue.

E. Pellicci

A local family run institution where you always feel welcome! This greasy spoon café is a proper traditional place with a buzzing atmosphere.

Sushi Samba

Busy but buzzing and the cocktails are amazing. If you want to try sushi for the first time, no better place. Delicious!

Duck & Waffle

This restaurant in The Heron is a great way to start the day and there's not a bad view either... Breakfast is a must!!

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...

Trapeze

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

Tramshed

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!

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!

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!

Dark Sugars

Pure heaven for chocolate lovers! Handmade chocolates in a vast variety of flavours.

The Culpeper

A great brunch menu on a Saturday and the service is excellent. The full English and the anchovy butter is a nice touch.

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.

"In 1980 journalist Duncan Campbell entered (illegally) down an access shaft in Bethnal Green and attempted to cycle to Westminster. He was amazed at how well maintained and extensive the tunnels were under the city and had no need of a map as they were very well signposted."

  1. About Shoreditch

    Shoreditch is an area of London within the London Borough of Hackney. It is a built-up part of the inner city immediately to the north of the City of London, located 2.5 miles (4.0 km) east north east of Charing Cross. Shoreditch has, since around 1996, become a popular and fashionable part of London. Often conflated with neighbouring Hoxton, the area has been subject to considerable gentrification in the past twenty years, with accompanying rises in property prices. During the second 'dot-com' boom the area has become popular with London based web technology companies who base their head offices around Old Street.
