Squaremeal Review of Cafe Kick ?

“An Exmouth Market classic”, Café Kick is a world away from all those sports bar clichés – think lads in designer knock-offs drinking lager and watching footie. Although it’s the spiritual home of ‘babyfoot’ in London and shows live football, the vintage Formica tables, zinc bar, bright orange chairs and ceilings covered in World Cup flags suggest something cool and continental. Cocktails come in cheap during happy hour (4-7pm), when the beer of the day (perhaps Brahma or Mahou 5) is £2 a bottle. Food is global, but with Mediterranean overtones: specials of chickpea tagine with couscous or lamb and broad bean stew with rice supplement a café menu covering everything from lunchtime sandwiches and salads to sharing patters and tapas in the evening (pan con tomate, chorizo in red wine etc). A Shoreditch sibling, Bar Kick, has more tables and other added features.

A quirky bar, reminiscent of the Marseille’s docks! A trendy, bar football enthused crowd ‘habit’ Cafe Kick, the beer is not cheap but good! The cocktails are expensive but very good! To eat there are lots of great sharing platters, all very French, tasty and not too bad value for money! Otherwise the specials board above the food bar usually has at least one dish to tempt. The staff are a friendly bunch, quite often too busy to engage in a chat, the service isn't the quickest I've ever experienced...
