Zealand Road Coffee – Bow

zealand1

I discovered Zealand Road Coffee when I was looking through a magazine sticking post-it notes on pages of articles I intended to read later (although I never get around to it) when I came across something on Zealand Road Coffee. ‘Zealand Road’ jumped out at me because it has just such an awesome name. I figured it was because the owners were from New Zealand but the name actually comes from the fact that it’s on Zealand Road, nice. It’s in a great location and by that I mean it’s totally out of the way, a great locals spot. It’s right up there on my list because their cakes are great, it’s nice and simple, not fussy or pretentious, the staff are lovely and they have lots of magazines to read, a massive YES in my book. A good way up the Roman Road, it’s a part of the East End which is seriously taking its time to join the gentrification bandwagon, suffice to say it’s pie and mash, fish and chip shop territory, very authentic.
