Full Stop – Brick Lane

fullstop8

What was once a really good little antique shop is now an even better café. I like it because it’s been designed to look like a sitting room from another decade, complete with 1960’s kitchen cupboards, blue Formica table tops, couches, wall lamps and old photographs. They keep it simple serving a few pastries and cakes to go with your coffee and in the evening stay open late serving alcohol, a treat in London where a café rarely stays open past 6pm. I like cafes that don’t act like getting a flat white right is a matter of life or death, which, as I’m not actually a big coffee drinker is lost on me. What I like is somewhere were the furniture has all been hand picked as if the owner was decorating their own house. It’s a nice spot for working as the back area doesn’t get much natural light so good for working on a computer. As an antidote though there is a nice little window spot up front to watch the world go by.
