In Brick lane the walls are covered in mesmerising art, the lanes are bursting with vintage shops and I hear through the grapevine that there's a shop that makes the best bagels ever!  However if you are looking for great coffee after a long enjoyable day shopping, look no further! I've visited Brick lane many times now and I thought it would be a great idea to make a guide of my favourite coffee shops in Brick Lane.

104 Sclater Street

BellBoi has the most charming illustrated shop front and coffee cups and lets not forget the gorgeous palm leaf wallpaper. Asides from the lovely decor & exterior BellBoi makes great & yummy beverages. Just off Brick Lane surely a coffee shop not to miss.

135 Brick Lane

This place got quite busy on a Sunday so sadly we weren't able to get a table but as you can see I fell in love with the amazinnnnn' cakes and bakes. I was definetely impressed with the decor & those tree logs the cakes were on. So until I try the cake I won't be able to give you my verdict but thumbs up for first impressions. They also have some vegan options!

157 Brick Lane

My first impression were that I absolutely loved the Brick Lane coffee sign on the shopfront. This place is mostly for beverages and didn't have an overall amount of food but if you wanted a good coffee then  you're in the right place. I loved the illustrated wall as you go inside and the mix match furniture.

161 Brick Lane

Fika is more of a bar & kitchen than a coffee shop and has a lovely clean white tiled front giving you a great first impression. It's quite small but I thought I would add Fika as I loved the atmosphere of it and they had the most beautiful cinnamon buns I had ever seen.

42 Hanbury Street

Canvas cafe has to be one of my favourites and why wouldn't it be when thye serve the best vegan freak shakes in town. Again this might not be strictly a coffee shop but it had to have a mention based on the fact they make vegan food and has a bright friendly atmosphere. Just off Brick Lane Canvas cafe also hold events and if you sign up to their email list you get a free coffee...what more could you want. 

So there is my mini guide on where to find the best coffee & cake in Brick Lane. I hope you've enjoyed it and let me know if you ever visit and try the vegan freak shake. Another honourable mention is also Pretty Cuppa in Brick Lane.
