If you find yourself in Bethnal Green at the weekend (perhaps after a few hours wandering Columbia road flower market which isn't too far away) make sure you make a detour to Bistroteque for some food. This place isn't as cheap as chips but is delicious and perfect for a little extra special brunch for a birthday. 

This place is tucked away off the main high street and is worth a visit even if you only have time for a coffee this place is a little slice of edgy London in a nutshell, white washed walls, polished concrete floors, bloody mary's served by the bottomless bucket load and with dishes like crab rarebit on the menu you would think this place could not get any better until live jazz piano started and then you step into brunch heaven. 

We arrived early and managed to miss the crowds (within half an hour this bar was heaving with Sunday brunchers) 

We had a perfect view of the piano and got settled in to browse the menu...

we chose rhubarb bubbles...

and Bloody Mary's to wash down the most delicious eggs beni you have ever eaten, you must get these, they are to die for. 

The crab rarebit was a bit of a let down, with not much crab. 

  we finished off with strong coffees and shared pancakes, smothered in maple butter and winter compot. really delicious and  perfect end to a perfect brunch!


After you have had your fill of brunch walk it off down the canal and stop off at the Barge Cafe for a chilli hot chocolate to warm up. 

find them here..

23-27 Wadeson St, London E2 9DR,
