Restaurants in East London
1a Dunston St, Haggerston, E8 4EB
186 Hackney Rd, E2 7QL
Cafes in East London
258 Kingsland Rd, E8 4DG
This cafe wraps round a corner in Haggerston and has a chilled outdoor space (even though it’s right on the busy Kingsland Road).
Right now the cafe’s also playing host to Island Social Club, a Caribbean restaurant run by Londoners Marie Mitchell and Joseph Pilgrim. In the evenings it serves up what Evening Standard food critic Jimi Famurewa describes as “lightly reconsidered jerk shop staples, abominably flavoursome curries and buttery, expert rotis, steaming and begging to be squished into little pots of house-made, tingly-sweet mango chilli or tamarind sauce.”
45 Roman Rd, E2 0HU
Italian coffee loved by Bethnal Green locals.
Carmel by the Green
287A Cambridge Heath Rd, E2 0EL
The Grand Howl
214 Well St, E9 6QT
Bars and pubs in East London

The Eleanor Arms

A proper local pub with live jazz on Sundays.

15 Prescot St, E1 8AZ
57 Hackney Rd, E2 7NX
Homemade food and friendly owners mean lots of reviewers say this place feels like family. It’s set just off the Hackney Road and has an outdoor terrace if it ever stop raining.
