We dropped in to the Shepherdess Cafe for a leisurely breakfast. Egg, bacon, black pudding and a big mug of tea - what's not to like? Food and service were excellent. Plus we had the benefit of having one of my favourite British actors sitting...More

My breakfast choice is usually the bacon and egg sandwich. This would have been fantastic if not for the dull white sliced bread. Crusty/bloomer bread please people!

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be

connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood.
