Petersham Nurseries – Richmond, London

Petersham Nurseries is definitely the prettiest cafe I have ever been too. It’s both an informal ‘Teahouse’ and Michelin starred restaurant (The Cafe), set within a nursery next to the Thames and Petersham Meadows which makes it especially beautiful. As long as you have a taste for style above function you’ll love it. The tables [...]

Embassy East, Hoxton

Embassy East is in my opinion the best cafe in the area. Run by Tommy, Lehi and Chris (who wasn’t there when I took the photos), they source everything more or less locally with bread coming from the e5 Bakehouse, Smoked Salmon (the Alaskan kind) from Stoke Newington and coffee from Clerkenwell…

The Deptford Project – Deptford

What a crap day in the rain. Unlike Paris, everywhere in London looks shit in the rain. Deptford High Street is one of my least favourite places. However it is vibrant and has some great stuff, there are just too many butchers and fish shops and I can’t stand the smell…

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…

Zetter Town House – Clerkenwell

I challenge you to find a cosier bar then the Zetter Town House. Both eccentric luxury hotel and all day bar, it’s so very English like a stylish drunken aristocrat…

Brunswick House – Vauxhall

The first thing you might think when you walk out of Vauxhall tube station is “where the hell am I? This can’t be right?” but have faith, keep walking through the land that property developers forgot until you get to an incredibly elegant Georgian house overlooking a nightmarish tangled roundabout…
