For breakfast, try The Barrel Boulangerie for freshly baked French goods or Curious Yellow Kafe, which is tight on space but great for rye, eggs, gravlax and cinnamon knots.

Have a picnic-style lunch at Hoxton Street Market or head indoors for jerk chicken at Belly’s Taste of Jamaica, even try beef pies at F Cooke Pie and Mash.

Great pub grub comes from Howl at the Moon or The George & Vulture – both do great food and have amazing decor and atmosphere.

Best nearby attractions

Although you aren’t right in central London, that doesn’t mean there aren’t amazing attractions. For some history, head to the Geffrye Museum, which is a stately home built in the 1600s, and for art get yourself along to the White Cube Gallery. The latter is a great mixture of famous and emerging artists.

For something entirely different, visit Hackney City Farm, which is perfect for families and animal lovers.
