SquareMeal Review of Hubbub Cafe Bar

Originally intended for Scottish Presbyterian dockers, this converted Victorian chapel now does characterful duty as a friendly Isle of Dogs café/bar. Situated above The Space (a performing arts & community centre), it also attracts an audience for inexpensive all-day brunches, burgers, ciabattas & fat, skin-on potato wedges. Free Wi-Fi, a small shaded terrace & special offers such as ‘steak Tuesday’ (a rib-eye & a glass of wine for £13) further endear this little diamond to the neighbourhood. Well loved & lived-in, with its tatty sofa, wooden church chairs, local art & the occasional Smiths’ track on the sound system, Hubbub recalls student hangouts of yesteryear. East London’s cutting-edge café scene seems a long way away.

Lounge Lizard 24 June 2009

Everything a neighbourhood bar/restaurant should be. Good food, attention to quality ingredients and a constantly changing menu. Watch out for the portion size as well – very generous.
