The Hive of Vyner Street at Cambridge Heath is a place of many talents. You can come here for wine and nibbles after five, but up till then it’s a comfortable place to have a coffee, jump on the wifi, and look at your laptop with a face that says you’re doing something very creative, serious and important. They also do some decent light sandwiches, salads and brunch-y things if you want them.
