Hand Café is in London’s very own East Village. While that area may have been known for counterculture this one is very much an example of conscious-culture. Tasteful shops and restaurants newly installed in the bottom of new glass builds. It’s all very Sims-y. But you know what, who cares when Hand Café is there? This Greek-ish brunch spot is easily one of the best we’ve eaten in in recent memory. Spiced chickpeas with eggs and bread. Killer toasties. The obligatory baked eggs. It’s a ten minute walk from Westfield. So if you’re unlucky enough to be there, find solace here.
