Mae + Harvey
If you live in Bow or Mile End, you know that most brunches in the neighbourhood tend to be disappointing. One of the exceptions is Mae and Harvey, where the food is consistently good, and you can eat some well-executed waffles or avocado toast without hauling ass to Shoreditch or Hackney. They also get bonus points for making one of the best coffees in the neighbourhood, and on different nights they also open late and serve cocktails and tacos. Know that the cafe is very small, so there’s a chance you’ll end up sharing a table with strangers. Arriving at 11am before it fills up is a smart move.
