This weekend I have gone to the East End (yes, yet again!).
Started with lunch at Albion caff, poached eggs and good toast with blackberry jam. I must say the maitre d‘ was brilliantly professional but the rest of the waiting staff failed to impress, it was one of those places where waiters are trying really hard not to notice the customers.
The caff redeemed itself by selling pancake-sized chocolate chip cookies for 95 pence.
Albion has got a deli section too and it all looked rather tempting.
Then we were off to Columbia Road Flower Market which is one of my favorite places in London. The shops are amazing and the flowers pretty and cheap – especially if you decide to stick till the end of the market day, you can get yourself a real bargain.
The hydrangeas were so beautiful.
Lovely shop – Vintage Heaven. A lot of eye candy and Cake Hole cafe at the back. How fab!
They also have a knitting group on Tuesdays, I must go.
Nice tiles at Supernice
Fun stuff at Treacle
I have got the 50s original of this plate. Copy cats.
Ryantoon at Ryantown.
Then it was off to The Lamb and Flag – the oldest pub in London
NB there is a Polish film season at the PCC with great films like Decalogue and Interrogation.
Evening finished at Taro in Soho for a tasty Japanese dinner.
