Marmiteart's Qype profile
236 Brick Lane, London E2 7EB
Tatty Devine is great and this branch is delightful. I had a snoop around here lately after filling myself with some of the sweets from the shop across the street.
The sales assistant was so lovely and chatted to me for ages about the jewellery among other things. I love Tatty Devine for their truly original, quirky and creative jewellery, such as their ink quill necklace in gold with a piece of black hard plastic for the ink.
7 Roach Road, Hackney Wick, London E3 2PA
I love the counter cafe, i love walking along the canal to get to it and I love chilling out there, the food is delicious. I especially love the Eggs Benedict! yummy!
I guess what's nice about this place is the fact that it's hidden away in fish island so only people in the know go there, well up until everyone reads this review that is!
The cinema seats adds a touch of humor to the place, they always have different art of the walls placed there by the many artists living in the area, other things that make this cafe so great is the free wifi, strong coffee and selection of daily newspapers.
11 Prince Edward Road, Hackney Wick, E9 5LX, London E9 5LX
The Hackney Pearl is a new cafe and Bar situated in the heart of Hackney Wick and is aptly named as all those who live in Hackney Wick know there is the only classy place you can come for a late night cup of coffee or glass of wine as it is opened till 11pm from Tuesday to Saturday.
I sampled their scrambled eggs recently which were nicely cooked, service is always with a smile and the decor is minimal. Love it.
50 Highgate High Street, Highgage Village, London N6 5HX
This is an adorable little cafe in the heart of Highgate village which my pal and I happened to stumble upon one cold January afternoon. We had originally planned to go for a stroll in Hampstead Heath but because i was starting to loose all feeling in my toes I suggested we go for tea quick smart, and what a good idea that turned out to be.
Everything about this place is so darling from the quaint drawings on the wall of clocks to the dresser that props up tea cosies with pom poms on top, aprons, tea cups which are all for sale.
And on to the important bit, the food: I had cream tea which consisted of 2 scones, jam, clotted cream and tea of choice for £5, delicious.
There is a gallery at the back which was closed the day i was there unfortunately but i was informed that they are interested in showing local artists.
The staff are really sweet and the clientele are quintessentially English, pinkies up!
34 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, London E2 7DP
This sweet little pub on Redchurch Street is so old fashioned it's reminiscent of an old irish watering hole.
I came here recently for a sunday roast which is served upstairs in a quaint room full of tables dressed with red and white checkered table cloths and green carpet.
The was delicious but I have to say a little pricy for my liking for a huge plate of lamb, all the veg and roast potatoes you like it costs £15. Compared to other pubs who only charge £10.
They have a beer garden out the back which is cool during the summer months.

After overhearing a conversation in an elevator once about how amazing this restaurant was I have been wanting to try it ever since. The first thought that springs to mind is but how the hell can you eat in the dark? So I finally got to try it last night and see or not see as it were for myself.
I sampled one of the cocktails first in the lit bar, i tried the Dans le Noir (£8.50) which was raspberry puree, vodka, Chambord, splash orange juice topped up with Laurent Perrier Brut with a blackberry on top. As me and my friend waited for the 9 o clock sitting the bar got busier and the people from the previous sitting poured out of the hall rubbing their eyes, some laughing, some looking very confused.
At 9 we were introduced to our blind waiter Mona who told us to form a line and to place our hand on the shoulder of the person in front of us as she led us down the dimly lit hall, through two sets of curtains into complete darkness.
We both ordered the white surprise menu and we were handed a plate of what we thought was just meat at first but as we explored the plate further we found some rice and veg. It was difficult to cut the food and it was a little cold which was disappointing.
The dessert was a blueberry mouse and vanilla custard (there is probably some fancy name for it but thats what it was basically) I enjoyed it, but i was expecting more for the price at £29 per person. But It was a great experience that i am glad to have tried.

I came here for a cocktail recently with a friend and what a cocktail it was I got the Loungelover £8.00 which is a combination of fig liqueur, sweet vanilla and zesty lemon oil finished with prosecco. Served straight up in a champagne flute. Yummidy yum!
The creators of this beautiful eccentric lounge bar also own the fabulous fine dining restaurant Les Trois Garcons around the corner which is on my list of places to try!
Lounge Lover is a short walk from Brick Lane, it’s packed with the same gorgeous curiosity shop type clutter as the restaurant, with long, rustic oak tables, flamboyant sofas, red drapes and much surreal artwork.
8-9 Hoxton Square, Shoreditch, London N1 6NU
I ran in here one day after i was reading my book in Hoxton square park and it started to rain! I was pleasantly surprised to find a really warm and cosy cafe with a relaxed atmosphere. Random seats, green glasses, a fine selection of cakes on the window and some interesting looking artwork on the walls are some of the things that make this cafe so special.
I ordered some apple cake, which was served with a little pot of cream.
I cant finish this review without commenting on the staff, who are so friendly and down to earth.

I miss Yaffa cafe!
52 Brushfield Street, London E1 6AG
I love this little corner coffee house! it’s quite similar to Parisian cafes in it’s woody interior! The last time I was here I got a coffee and some gingerbread cake with lemon icing on top! £3.50 for the lot which is average for coffee and cake i guess! Nice place to come to read a book or catch up with a friend!
