Gossip Cafe – Hackney


Gossip is a cute little cafe selling a variety of tea and vegan cakes which if you’re not into eating dairy are pretty damn good, especially their Bakewell tarts. I would come here more often if it was ever possible to get a seat. There appears to be a bunch of regulars who seem to come here and stake out their spot all day. This was the one sole occasion that it was empty but then it was about 9am. I get the feeling Gossip has been around from the beginning of Broadway Market’s gentrification as it’s a little more down to earth than some places. It’s a fairly hippy little spot, I think it’s hard to deny that, although it’s easy to brand most things vegetarian with that description. The room at the back is a suntrap when the sun is actually out which is lovely and the shelves packed with different varieties of tea and tea pots give it a well loved atmosphere.
