An independent cafe in the square opposite the Circus School . They look after us with hot soups and vitamin packed salads. Sit back in the cafe gallery, view the artwork, or watch people practising handstands outside. Located at 5 Hoxton Market, Shoreditch, London N1 6HG
Great spot in Leonard's Street EC2A 4AQ where you can see and smell the coffee roasting while you have a delicious cake along with your flat white. This is the London branch of a New Zealand roasting team from New Plymouth. Open for breakfast from 7.30am.
