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.
