Square Meal Review of The Counter Café ?

The Counter Café’s aesthetic (Antipodean caff, by way of a Berlin squat) is pure Hackney Wick: artsy, dishevelled & unselfconsciously cool. Vintage cinema seats, raw brick walls & felt-tipped murals inside, graffiti & a scuzzy, sunny yard outside – it appeals to one’s inner student. Fittingly, you’ll get a good lunch here at student prices; charging £5 for a pie (chicken & leek or that Kiwi classic, mince & cheese, all made in-house) is a great offer. Brunch, the Counter big breakfast, a salmon & cream cheese bagel or Mumbai spicy scramble, plus a good cup of Square Mile coffee, won’t tip your bill too far over a tenner. The location is off the beaten track, but if you’re visiting Stour Space, exploring Victoria Park or the canal, then make it your mission to come here. The Counter’s nearby sister, Container Café, offers great views of the Olympic Park.

    Got To Be Gourmet :: Throwback Thursday: Counter Cafe, Hackney | Got To Be Gourmet

    This week’s ‘Throwback Thursday’ doesn’t refer to one visit in particular – it’s a local favourite of mine that I’ve been to many times. I’m selfishly also slightly reluctant to write about it, as it’s one of my favourite hidden gems. I remember when Time Out wrote about it last summer, and suddenly every weekend it was absolutely packed. But hey, I’ll be nice and share it with you all!

    The place I’m talking about is Counter Cafe in Hackney Wick. I went through a phase a year or so ago when I went on a mission to try out a new breakfast/brunch place in our area each weekend. Despite living in Bow for over...
