Hang Out In East London

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: November 15th, 2011

Hackney in East London is home to London arts, youth and music scenes and centred around with numerous trendy clubs, bars, independent shops, restaurants, their infamous flower market on Columbia Road and two of their large stretches of open spaces, Victoria Park and London Fields.

I tend visit Hackney in the winter particularly the Broadway Market (I have yet to experience the busy stalls on Saturdays) purely to meet friends for quick coffee, food and catch ups as most of my close friends lives in the East.  La Bouche is the most visited cafe, a cosy eatery environment but their freshly made, mouth watering food is always a winner.

Well-edited boutiques and organic produce coffee shops attracts many young and fashion forward Londoners to the area, everyone seems to share the same mutual friends and the locals are super friendly too.  I love Hackney.

 Bill’s Cafe

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: November 3rd, 2011

I’ve stumbled upon this quirky cafe ‘Bill’s‘ in the new St Martin’s Courtyard in Covent Garden whilst meeting friends for light lunch.  Bill’s is a unique cafe and produce store created by a team of people who are passionate about food.  A rustic and modern feeling of wonderful eating and shopping environment, incorporating fresh and organic fruit and vegetables, herbs, groceries and hampers.

The cafe offers an array of enticing colourful homemade cakes, pizzas, pies and sandwiches, as well as wider choice of desserts and salads, made to order juices, smoothies and other beverages.

As it was a lovely warm autumn afternoon we decided to eat outside, I ordered a latte, fish finger sandwich and chunky chips and I can’t express how much I really enjoyed eating traditional British food again.  I will for sure come back again, can’t wait to see how a Christmas decoration in the store would look during the festive season.  Exciting!

Bill’s, St Martin’s Couryard, 13 Slingsby Place, London, WC2
