Sneak into The Bridge Coffee House

You may recall me banging on about this place in my previous post HERE!

If you are in the Shoreditch area, I recommend you popping in for a nice cuppa and a little breather upon your travels.

On the outside it looks rather unassuming. In fact, when I first noticed the place being done up, I had ear marked it as a junk shop!



She insisted on sitting on the pink chairs.



Sumptuous surroundings.


Do visit soon while it is still a little bit of a secret. I am certain that this place will be heaving with popular crowds very soon.

The Bridge Coffee House
15 Kingsland Road
London
E2 8AA

If you are on the look out for a quintessentially british brew and some knockout food then perhaps this place is not for you.
Yes, the deco is in your face and, yes it is tacky.
BUT
If you are like me, this is a convenient pit stop on your way home from the City when the last thing you want to do is be surrounded by drunken City types in pinstriped mayhem.

Frankly, if you are looking for a perfect cuppa and nice slice of cake then ......Don't head for Shoreditch.
