Railroad – Hackney


I’m not sure I really want to tell anyone about Railroad, the reason being that it’s just so perfect and I don’t want it to get too busy all the time! It’s a small and unassuming little place, where they make perfect coffee in small cups, thick and creamy and their hot chocolate is the best I have ever had. They do a good combination of great food in plentiful portions, they’re not stingy here and they have great cakes. With a scattering of small wooden tables it’s in a part of Hackney that is in dire need of somewhere that isn’t a fried chicken shop and is a bit more exciting than that Burberry outlet shop around the corner. Railroad is so cosy and stays open until 11pm so it’s the perfect spot for either a late night glass of wine or a cup of coffee. It attracts a clique of like minded people and the food is great, especially the Moroccan eggs. If I was to visit New York or LA, Railroad is exactly the sort of place I would want to find, definitely a cool local favourite.
