The Barge House, is an all-day café on the Regent’s Canal near Haggerston serving eggs, sandwiches, and an enormous weekend brunch in hollowed out loaves of bread. The setting here is comfortable and lovely and although The Towpath Café next door may be the nicest house on the road in terms of food, this is an excellent back-up option, plus it has plenty of indoor seating for the other 364 days of the year when the weather doesn’t make sitting outside ideal.
