    This is my favourite place in London! It's a cafe, a bar a restaurant and a club all at once! When you go for breakfast please have the pancakes! You won't regret it!

  • Margherita B.

    I love this place! I only wished I lived in London to come here more often. It also has a ping pong room for some chilled out plays

  • Nathan W.

    For the uninitiated American waiting in vain for a waiter to come by, order and pay at the bar. Yes it's written on the menu, but really, who reads instructions?

    Poached eggs on avocado toast is definitely worth a try ! Could have been a bit more runny but it was still delicious !!!

    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.

    Went to an event called Bar shorts, it's on the basement floor. It was a free event and enjoyed it so much! You could order food as well and drinks. Defo check if there are any events going on! :)

    Nice place with some exhibitions. Just too bad that the WIFI's connection is so bad you can't use it!

    nice music & hipster crowd

    Lise Martineau · February 15
  • Hanne S.

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

  • Pierre-Ange O.

    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

  • Sophie B.

    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.

  • Ricardo B.

    Not really nice bartenders... And the bouncer gives the pub a dodgy look

    Reasonable (for london) prices for cocktails. Doesn't have an amazing selection of beers but has plenty of space and quirk for a good night out.

    Alex Tomlinson · September 26, 2014
