Weekend Tips: London Coffee Festival

Caffeine addicts and eager latte artists will find their little pocket of heaven in Brick Lane this weekend. Hosted at the Old Truman Brewery, the London Coffee Festival will start on Thursday 6th of April, and finish on Sunday the 9th. Throughout the full four days you will discover just how many things you can do to your brew: substituting good old Thames juice with coconut water, pairing it with certain food depending on the type of beans, or even adding adult fun to it, courtesy of their Espresso Martini party!

Of course, it’s only fair that nobody hogs all the fun, so everybody has their time at the Coffee Festival. That’s why we came up with some little havens where you can have a breather, all of them close by the Truman Brewery, and all equally fabulous.

The Duck Truck

In beyond-hobo-chic Spitalfields, The Duck Truck sums up our current love affair with food trucks, plus Londoners’ reminding penchant for posh nosh. In their own words, if you don’t like duck, you’re out of luck. If you like duck, you’re in for a treat, and you will make this spot one of your favourites! Plus, studies indicate that duck is by far healthier than chicken, and these lads even through there the fact that duck fat is better than olive oil, or at least has a lower quantity of saturated fat! So basically, more reasons to go there and grab your grub!

Sushi Surprise

Nigiri, Hot Food, Donburi, and Platters for sharing. You name it, they’ve got it, only better. The best, freshest ingredients, and the most talented team come together, Sushi Surprise is really making its mark in the Shoreditch area. We strongly recommend any of their sushi and sashimi platters, but their marinated mackerel nigiri is heavenly!

Pitfield Cafe

After the Coffee Festival, there’s no way you can go back to any brew, which is why we strongly recommend Pitfield Cafe. If you had enough coffee for the weekend, their Chai is outstanding! And why not leave the coffee out? Believe me, they have plenty of things to keep you interested…

The best thing about our weekend recs? They all have Buy One, Get One Free deals when using the ENTERTAINER app! Make sure you download it, and start getting the best out of your days out in London!
