If you’re wondering whether cargo pants and full camo are back in fashion, what the coolest east London dogs are, or what tunes you should put on that Spotify playlist that you sometimes use to impress people who doubt your taste, Bancone Dalston is the place to come. It’s a coffee spot in a repurposed factory, serving great coffee and pastries, and it’s got that kind of laidback cool that can make you feel like maybe you could be cool too, instead of clumsy and inept.
Balcone Dalston is permanently closed.
