The Clerkenwell Kitchen is the multi-purpose unpretentious neighbourhood cafe we long to find in every corner of London. It's the kind of place that serves coffee, and a dozen or so variations of egg on bread, and then a handful of freshly made lunch options from 12 till 3pm on weekdays. Things like soup, sandwiches, pies, and pasta are available for a civilised lunch in this spacious spot, which even has a small garden seating area at the back for those summer days when you can't face the crowds at Exmouth Market.
