    Interesting bar and restaurant. Comfortable chairs to spend hours reading or working. Very limited selection of nonalcoholic beverages.

    Came here on a sat night and the music was so fun! Great vibe, but the bar situation is annoying. There's one in each floor and a huge line to get to a bartender. Other than that, I loved it.

    Breakfast was nice and not expensive at all. You have to order at the bar and pay immediately, which I didn't mind.

    Fun fact: they have a real time Facebook fan counter! Don't believe me? Like their Facebook page and look up the wall on the left-hand side of the bar. Read more

    Quintessential hipster coffee shop in Shoreditch. Free wifi, lots of space, big windows, and great food/coffee. Not a ton of outlets; busy but not hard to get a table.

    Went there because of all the recommendations, but was slightly disappointed. The music was decent, but it takes ages to get a drink or use the restrooms. The hipster vibe simply attracts, I suppose.
