Greasy spoon - without the grease. Or rather, less of, and higher quality produce.

Ostensibly a typical East End caff, a couple of items on the menu - halloumi cheese, maple syrup, Tunnock's Caramel Wafers, for example - suggest a somewhat alternative sensibility.

They do a bloody good vegetarian breakfast, I'm told that their corned beef hash is amazing (just the fact they have this on their menu was a source of excitement to meat eating...more
