For a late breakfast or a hearty lunch between sightseeing trips in East London, pause at Canteen, a relaxed and welcoming address that offers a 100 % kid friendly menu and gourmet brunch until 1:30.
In the heart of the bustling covered Spitalfields Market you will find Canteen, no-fuss and family friendly, with red seats and a spacious terrace. Ideally located at the crossroads of the City and Brick Lane, Canteen is the gourmet and casual break you need with children for brunch or lunch before returning to energetic East London.
For breakfast, enjoy 100% British recipes of tasty porridge with dried fruit or light pancakes served with fromage frais and caramel. The comprehensive egg menu includes a myriad of delicious takes on eggs-benedict. For lunch, succumb to the savory pie of the day or the traditional fish and chips before giving in to the Sticky Toffee Pudding, a sweet, local specialty.
Children are more than welcome at Canteen and everything has been designed so that they have a good time. Several high-chairs and changing tables are available and a welcome kit is distributed to young guests, with crayons and lucky dip (coloring book and rhymes). The real plus: a menu is completely dedicated to them, with portioned dishes adapted to their appetite (bangers and mash, macaroni and cheese, Roast beef, chicken fried or scrambled eggs).
… the informal atmosphere of this cozy canteen, a warm, little hideaway for families out and about at meal time.
The Brick Lane Market, open Saturdays and Sundays, a five minutes walk from Canteen, where you can stroll through the stalls of vintage clothes and those of young designers.
