3 Great Things To Eat & Drink In London Fields

From blanket-sized gözleme on Broadway Market, to Caribbean lunch deals.

Like a lot of pedestrianised neighbourhoods, the streets around London Fields excel in two key areas: ambling and eating. Feeling worse for wear after a heavy night? There’s a cheeseburger you should know about. Bumped into someone you or your friend vaguely knows? Sounds like a coffee and a pastry opportunity. Feeling a little down in the dumps? It’s a good thing one of London’s best sandwiches is just around the corner. You see, London Fields has plenty of delicious and gluggable options if you happen to be passing by. These are the best ones:

Saray Broadway Cafe


58 Broadway Market, Hackney
Earn 3X Points

Every weekend Broadway Market puts on a production of ‘Hey, This Feels Kinda Normal, Right?’, an unrehearsed pandemic-proof show, where swathes of people with Terminator-like focus appear on a mission to get a coffee from Climpson & Sons. If you’re looking to get in and out of here with something delicious, all while avoiding the locals and their army of whippets, then Broadway Cafe is your best bet. It’s a straightforward looking caf that hand rolls gözleme in the window every day. A blanket-sized roll of spinach and feta-filled flatbread will cost you about £3. Warm, salty, soft, and crisp around the edges, it really is good enough to snuggle up in.

Or, try Pavilion Bakery for breads and pastries, like their Tunworth cheese, potato and rosemary slice, or E5 Bakehouse for a vegan banh mi and a cinnamon bun.

What Your Hangover Needs


Hill & Szrok

Earn 3X Points

Gözleme might be precisely what you need right now (in which case, see above), but if you’re feeling patient and less queue averse, there’s Hill & Szrok right next door to Saray on Broadway Market. The bougie butchers makes a mean Toulouse sausage, among lots of other things. But it’s their double cheeseburger - foil-wrapped, juice-heavy, and pickle-generous - that has us loitering outside on Fridays and Saturdays like a hypebeast with a hankering. That said, their merch is pretty tasty as well.

Or, Elliot’s is new around here and their delicious sourdough pizzas and tiramisu doughnuts are a very welcome cure. And Lucky Chip are in Netil Market if that burger craving is serious.

It feels silly to call Mare Street off the beaten track, but in comparison to the perma-London Fields festival, it can feel that way. It’s where you’ll find Caribbean Kitchen and their too-good-to-turn-down lunch deals. Back in the day, when fresh air was breathed, and items were handled willy-nilly, there was something called ‘Ye Olde Mealus Dealus’. It was sad, it was more often inhaled than chewed, and Caribbean Kitchen puts it to shame. Their chicken stew with rice and peas is a generous and chilli-warming lunch for one. The same goes for their vegan sweet potato and black bean offering. Or there’s a jerk chicken wrap if you’re looking for something for handheld, all for in and around a fiver.

Or, L’eau à La Bouche is a - how do you say? - très charmante deli that does a mean croque monsieur or raclette toastie, perfect for a midweek pick-me-up.
