If you ever find yourself roaming the streets of Shoreditch with that peckish feeling, take some time to visit the Albion.
Located just caddy-cornered to the Tea Rooms, the Albion's minimalist surroundings swirl with the scent of freshly baked goods. Pyramids of cupcakes, flapjacks & american sized cookies are stacked in wait to be plucked onto plates and into tummies.
Aside from baked goods, the Albion offers a lovely all day breakfast menu, as well as simple British dishes (Welsh rabbit & fish pie…among others). There are also several wonderful options for us Veggies - ranging from omelettes to fresh soups.
Each table is dotted with a silver tin filled with the freshest, thickest slices of house-baked sour dough bread - which is served fresh out of the oven & complimentary with your meal.
My choice menu - a simple cheese omelette sided with a cuppa - was met with great expectation. Sharp cheddars oozed out of the pillowy yellow omelette, while the strong fresh coffee woke me right up for some vintage shopping afterward.
Thanks to my girl Cally for pointing out this tasty little hideaway.
Until next time...
