Cream is a cool all-day cafe off Shoreditch High Street that has a rotating menu ranging from super healthy grain bowls to a plate of oyster mushrooms and Comté on sourdough. It’s a fantastic place to sit when it’s sunny and they open the shop front onto the street, or for getting some work done during the day.
