“This crisp, clean, chic warehouse” with “big industrial windows” in Cambridge Heath is, say fans, the “perfect, perfect, perfect spot for a lovely weekend brunch” or a “lush lunch with oysters and Champagne”. A hipster haven for 15 years, it still rates well for its “delicious food” and an atmosphere boosted by live music.

Occupying “a great open space”, this hip warehouse-conversion in Cambridge Heath has been a “lively” East End feature – particularly for brunch – since ‘cool’, ‘East End’ and ‘restaurant’ first appeared in the same sentence; live music is a regular feature.

“Its hip heyday is a decade in the past, and it’s now a tourist trap for those in search of cool east London” – that’s the cynical view on this light and airy warehouse-conversion, but more numerous are fans who still tip it as a fun brunch haunt.

Critics may say it’s “trading on its five minutes of fame as the original hipster hangout ten years ago”, but most reports say this East End warehouse-conversion is “hard to find, but worth the effort”“a light and airy space, with a solid range of offerings (particularly drinks…)”
