Square Meal Review of The Proud Archivist ?

Combining an art gallery, café, deli, bistro and community events space under one roof, this all-purpose venue beside the Regent’s Canal aims to echo and revive the traditions of London’s grand coffee houses. Entertainment, education, canal-side sustenance and conversation go hand in hand here, and the kitchen’s all-day offer takes in everything from Cobble Lane charcuterie or gnocchi with Stilton, spinach and walnuts to heritage burgers, sea bass with mussels and bouillabaisse sauce or pork belly with rhubarb compote. Breakfast and brunch also cover a lot of ground, from stacks of pancakes and sausage sarnies to pumpkin hash with black pudding and fried egg. Meanwhile, the deli and ‘tuck shop’ is fully stocked with muffins, cakes, pastries, Vietnamese salads, croque monsieur and more besides. The snappy, regularly changing wine list also promises lots of appealing possibilities.

    The Little Brown Book :: The Proud Archivist

    So you may or may not have gathered but I am a little bit of a fan of the London hunt. What I am more of a fan of is when somebody else suggests a place to explore. Better yet, when I haven’t heard of said place. This exact chain of events occurred a few weekends ago and is what led me to The Proud Archivist in Haggerston. After a tiny jaunt down the canal we arrived at our destination, a collaboration of restaurant, gallery, bar and events space overlooking the water. How can you not be drawn in here?! With the evening light pouring in through the window there was really no way we were going anywhere else!...
