Food and Drink
Here are the places Maria and I visit on a regular basis. The surrounding area is full of amazing traditional and artisanal places to go. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
For a healthy light bite there's no place better. We like the sausage rolls, they also have the most amazing condiments at the back of the shop on offer if you eat in so make the most of those ;)

Shopping and Walks
Some of the markets walking distance from our home. For food, flowers, vintage clothes or anything your heart desires! On a Sunday a lovely walk is down the canal to Broadway Market then turn south past Hackney City Farm and through Colombia Flower Market ending in Brick Lane and Old Spittalfields you will have experienced the best East London has to offer.
Mainly artisanal/boutique shops backed up with excellent restaurants. We would do this in tandem with Broadway Market and Colombia Flower Market on a Sunday.
