Crate Brewery – Hackney Wick

Ok so I think it best that on this occasion I just list what I think is great about the Crate, so here goes; 1. The pizza is the best I have had in London, with toppings like ricotta, caramelised onions and courgette. 2. They have their own Brewery which has garnered much attention from the likes of Jamie Oliver and Truman Brewery, I don’t know much about beer so that’s all I can tell you, that and the labels look cool…

46b Espresso Hut – Hackney

I found this great little cafe when I was out on by bike the other day trying to find somewhere open to shelter from the snow. It’s a lovely little place, it’s amazing what some people can do with a very ordinary space, 46b is effortlessly cool and quirky…

Creperie du Monde – Hackney

I think if there was only one thing I could eat for the rest of my life it would be crepes. Creperie du Monde does lots of delicious and different types of crepe from sweet to savoury the list is huge, just look at the menu on their website and they do waffles and omelettes too. It’s jam packed on the weekend as Chatsworth Road is fast on its way to becoming Broadway Market…

Dog & Wardrobe – Hackney

There definitely appears to have been a shift in style as to what people decorate their houses with. I grew up with staffordshire figures and various bowls used as table centre pieces…

L’Entrepot (Borough Wines) – Hackney Downs

Inbetween a skip and a Tesco Express is the last place I would expect to find a place like L’Entrepot. Owned by Borough Wines, this wine bar/cafe is a brilliant addition to a very quickly up and coming area…
