An Easy London Weekend - Sunday AM: Breakfast at Canteen

Gerkhin to Shoreditch

Ah, Sunday in the City. I take an early-morning walk from the Gherkin and head into Shoreditch. The market is very busy and buzzy on a Sunday. Lots of second-hand tweed on sale. I take breakfast in Canteen and have the 'full English' and a pot of tea. I really like the ethos of the place. Lots of unpretentious British cooking on the menu. You can even get spotted dick and custard. Warmly recommended.

Coincidentally, as I'm tucking into my bacon and eggs, I read in a Sunday magazine a story on famous murders in the East End of London in Victorian times. Spooky.


  1. I too enjoyed Canteen, and posted my review here:

  2. I've only tried Canteen in Spitalfields. But I appreciate their ethos and their aesthetic, and their food of course. I only hope they have plans to open in other locations throughout the British Isles.
