Put simply just a really cute and calm spot for a nice coffee. Had such a lovely chat with the girls working there and the coffee was top notch. Will be back.

Fab coffee, great bagels, and the loveliest staff... And then there are the wonderful late night events, where quality wine and cheese feature. Brill is a little gem.

Great bites, backyard garden, reasonable prices, and the best bagels in London (courtesy of Bricklane Bagel Bake). The atmosphere is sunny, relaxed, and cozy. The Cheese & Everything Bagel is tremendously delicious

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
