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.
