    Great British fare, always. Perfect place for lazy lunching. The sandwiches are a favourite. Expect a short queue.
  • Berk M.
    They make £6.75 sandwiches but they're huge! You get 2 sandwiches made between slices of delicious loaf. You can even share if it you get something on this side. Nice little shop area by the entrance

    Lovely food... the half pint of prawns is amazing and portobello mushrooms on toast and Lancashire hot pot (lamb) are both very good. Avoid the Pinot Noir (Le Vieux Quartier, 2010), poor wine for £32

    Albion serves great British food on offer all day at their café/restaurant. They also have a small shop with some of the best organic produce in Shoreditch, but beware of the prices; it can be dear.

    The stake sanwich melts in your mouth and the root salad is super tasty, specially when you've seen everything you are having raw at the shop.

    Divided in a cute food store selling homemade bread/cakes and the café serving delicious dishes prepared in the open plan kitchen. Simple British food,bustling atmosphere,free wi-fi & homemade treats! Read more

    Great service (even at the busiest time) and atmosphere. Sandwiches are massive and with unique flavors. My friend tried pea and ham soup and liked it. Amazing deli and dessert selection too.

    Great place with fresh pastry and delicious breakfast. Try their pain au chocolat, it's one of the best I've ever had!

    Fantastic for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. The sausage and mash is excellent, as is the full Albion breakfast. Also try the gunpowder tea, which is green tea based.

    The Coronation Chicken Sandwich is fluffy and delicious! You basically get 2 sandwiches for the price of one so you can eat both or take one to go. A great value!

    Excellent Full English brekkie. Order an extra toast, some strawberry jam and a pot of Yorkshire Tea. Amazing. Plus: if you go by yourself you get to sit in no time.

    The sandwiches here could feed a family of four for several days. Good crusty bread. Curiously, I'm not sure if you can really buy the veggies here, or if they are only shown for organic hipster-cred.

    Since the attached Boundary Hotel is the hotspot, Albion is a good spot for solo dining, especially if you’re planning to bring a laptop or book and linger. (There’s complimentary Wi-Fi available.) Read more

    Went here for coffee with a friend. Lovely ambiance and pastry selection. My pan au chocolate was way too much pan and next to no chocolate though. Soy latte was kind of unappetizing too.

    I ordered a roasted chicken sandwich with mayo and lettuce, but I didn't expect two sandwiches! :o It tasted great, I couldn't finish both of them tho, so I took one home in a doggy bag :-)

    Amazing breakfast, monstrous croissants. Order a main for yourself and the almond croissant to share.

    Food is good. Getting too busy to give you the proper attention and care. Waited too long (20min) for my coffee. Nearly finished my breakfast before it came. And even getting the bill is a wait.

    Located next to the Boundary in Shoreditch, this pastry palace must not be missed. Their breakfast sandwiches are collosal, and homemade scones outrageously scrumptous. Takeaway never tasted better.

    The full breakfast is amazing. Expect a queue on the weekends but worth the normal half hour wait! Also pick up some bits from their shop to take home.

    Good place to go for pastries, fresh produce and organic food. Can be a bit pricey, but a nice experience and friendly environment.

    Steak sandwich with chips was superb. And our service was prompt friendly and quick! Would love to share a picture but my plate is empty now!

    I simply love this place, food quality is definitely a thing here, pricy for brunch/lunch and so on but is definitely worth for a quick bite

    This place can get a bit nuts on the weekend, so avoid going at peak times. Off peak is lovely. Great sit-down food and takeaway nibbles.

    The porridge is delicious and there's great natural light in the back area. And it's adorable.

    Godly croissants and bread. Their food offering is seasonal, homely and very well cooked but pricey. £13 for steak sandwich and chips, ouch!

    Full English not great. Home made baked beans is a fail - why mess with Heinz perfection? Scrambled eggs were a bit grainy too. Come back later for the pork scratching on the lunch menu.

    Went two days in a row for breakfast. The scrambled eggs are delicious, the omelette and toast are just OK. Wait staff is super friendly and easygoing.

    Cafe and small shop, with an in-house bakery and cake counter, where the vast majority of the food and drink products are British.

    Reasonable dinner for reasonable prices, at least by London standards. Don't expect anything fancy from the dishes, but be sure to check out the freshly madd bread!

    Breakfast-to-go from the Albion’s bakery at the weekend is a must - the giant pastries are second to none – but be warned, there’s only one coffee machine – so prepare to queue. Read more

    Beef &~ale pie really quite good - do try. Service as perfectly tolerable as most places that put service on bill, they need to trust the customer and not treat us with such disdain. The bread is spec
