Go for a spot of brunch down on the farm

Frizzante Cafe at Hackney City Farm is an award winning cafe in an idyllic setting in the heart of East London which follows the Channel 4 rules of catering: (i) use fresh ingredients (ii) keep the menu simple (iii) teach people about where their food comes from with fluffy animals.

And the good news is...it works. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is good (if understanably family-oriented) and everyone seems to be smiling. It's even quite down to earth and not as full of hippy hackney mums as you might think.

What's more, it's excellently placed for a visit to the farm itself, for Broadway Market, for London Fields, for Columbia Road Flower Market on a Sunday, or as a convenient stop-off on a wander from Shoreditch to Victoria Park. It's perfect!

It's open 10-4.30 in winter and 10-5.30 in summer (closed Mondays) and it's just off Hackney Road. For more information visit the Frizzante Cafe website at http://www.frizzanteltd.co.uk/ or the Hackney City Farm website at http://www.hackneycityfarm.co.uk/.
