So, turns out that sliced bread isn’t the greatest thing ever. At least that’s how it seems judging by the amount of bakeries in East London these days, and, to be honest with you, we’re not complaining when bread is as good as The Dusty Knuckle’s is. This social enterprise bakery has been doing good things in lots of ways for a few years now and it’s a great little place for a pastry in the morning, or sandwich or soup at lunchtime. Things change daily, but look out for the all vegetable sandwiches in particular, we prefer them.
