The day we went discovering this area though, it was very cold and windy so as soon as we got out from Old Street tube station we looked for a cafè following the indications for Shoreditch area. The cafè we buped into is:
you can check their IG page here 😉
What I love about the cafè is it’s semplicity but at the same time attention to the details, when talking about interior design for example the chairs and tables are simple wooden ones but then the chandelier had it all.
It’s like if you have the feeling of being in a garden but indoor, there are lovely little plants on each table and as you can see the same these is showen in the chandelier.
The coffee is also very good (finally Yassmine approved an english coffee! :D) aaand they have almond milk so I could finally enjoy an almond milk cappuccino! 🙂 They also have a good choice of fast lunch food options and bakery such as cakes and cookies 🙂
Moving forward to the Shoreditch area and in particular to the popular Brick Lane, yes, it’s just a street but there are actually many things you can do around there!
Spotting graffiti for example, the are is full of street art and cool wall painitings that will fill your camera (or phone) with amazing pictures of them! Not only of the graffiti actually, because as suggested by the name, along Brick Lane and all the little streets crossing it, there are many nice buildings made of bricks which are very characteristic of this area 🙂
Also, there are plenty of Vintage stores where to lose yourself and lose the sense of time! Often they seem very small and not that visible from the outside but then when you enter they are very big and full of cool stuff 🙂
When you’re walking through Brick Lane, be sure not to just stick to Brick Lane but put an eye also on the strets that cross this main one, there are many pretty coffee shops and little books stores.
Shoreditch is also a famous area for hanging out at night, there are many bars and clubs near each other and due to the reputation, there are more people around during the night than during the day! 😀
