Cocktails & Brunch at Bistrotheque

One of my favourite places for brunch is Bistrotheque in East London. Bistrotheque is a well hidden gem on a residential backstreet near Cambridge Heath station. Unless you know what you are looking for, you can easily walk past this place as it is a converted warehouse with no outside decoration or signage. However once inside you […]
