Brick Lane Coffee – Brick Lane

bricklanecoffee10

Brick Lane Coffee was one of the first of this type of cafe, I mean the homey, cluttered type which encourages people to read magazines and stay for hours. A home away from home so to speak, an idea which is so popular these days. I remember when I was at art college years ago I loved this place because along with Cafe 1001 it was the only one of its kind really. It’s still a great cafe but unfortunately Brick Lane is home to a scummy street market with an abundance of sellers selling disgusting old office furniture and other rubbish. Being where it is, it’s very popular with market people and a number of passers-by so on a weekend I would give it a miss. Aside from that it stays open until 8pm which makes it a great place to kill time before meeting people for dinner and it’s still one of the original cafes of its kind with a proud Britannia theme I approve of.
