The cafe has a random and quirky decor – floral combined with framed records and even some Halloween style paraphernalia! The staff were friendly even though they were busy.

The Drinks

There is a good selection of hot drinks, soft drinks, fresh juices, mixed juices and milkshakes. We had a fresh Apple Juice (£3) and Mango, Orange and Lime Juice ( £3.5) which were great. The oreo milkshake also looked really delicious.

Cafe East Food

This awesome cafe on Roman Road has a BIG menu! Sometimes that can put people off but this menu is just awesome. They have a huge selection of breakfast / brunch dishes including a separate section just for pancakes and waffles (dreamy!). Cafe East also offers omelettes, burgers, wraps, salads and club sandwiches.

All the pancake and waffle sets are served with mixed berries, fresh fruits, fresh cream and maple syrup. We opted for the American (£8.9) with pancakes, 2 fried eggs, streaky bacon cumberland sausage and grilled cherry tomatoes and the Lost in London ( £9.9) with waffles, scrambled eggs, streaky bacon, cumberland sausage, 2 hash browns and baked beans. Both breakfasts were so filling and had the perfect balance of savoury and sweet. Such good value for the portion size and quality of food!
