Some of the fabulous cafés we've visited on these walks:
This lovely café was discovered on the Clerkenwell walk that begins in Angel, Islington. The cafe is so friendly and welcoming. It is a little quirky - there are so many unusual things to look at while you sit at your table and a lot of them are for sale. I thoroughly recommend this cafe1
9 White Lion Street, Islington, London N1 9PD
What a fabulous place! This was discovered on our Dalston walk. This cafe is connected to an art gallery next door that exhibits work from local artists. The cafe is exceptionally friendly. They gave us free space in their art gallery so we could do our introductions and go over the English worksheet at the beginning of our Dalston walk! In the cafe, there are wonderfully strange objects like a wooden ladder on the ceiling with the light fittings slotted through each rung! I cannot recommend this place enough!
87 Dalston Lane, Dalston E8 2NG
We begin here on the Vauxhall to Battersea walk when they have a spare table. This is an extraordinary place ... Brunswick House was built in 1758 as a home and offices. Today, it is a cafe as well as home to LASSCO, a business that collects antiques and well as salvages old objects from London. In fact, most of what you see here, is for sale, including the table you sit at! It is like going into a museum! And the staff are very friendly and helpful.
