Fashion and Pizza?

1n1 Fashion and Pizza is a  5 minute walk from Spitalfields – as the name suggests, it stocks clothes from various designers upstairs and is a cafe serving coffee, cake and pizza downstairs. Very East London! Pizzas are a bargain at around £4-5!

Hopscotch opened its doors in December with a drinking and dining den in Brick Lane. I particularly loved the downstairs bar with comfy booths and low lighting – perfect for a date night!

Broadway Market

First time to Broadway Market since I moved to East London! It is a much smaller and calmer Borough Market with a great selection of produce, arts and crafts, bookshops and so much more.
