After a girly day out of mooching around the discount Burberry store in Hackney, Renata and I found Brew for Two, a cute coffee shop across the street.
The interior is shabby chic, full of eclectic and quirky little treasures. All the tables have a large empty red wine bottle used to hold up long red candle sticks, a mix match vintage type furniture, and a chandelier.
We decided on a large pot of Darjeeling (£4) and a homemade carrot cake (there’s a daily selection of cakes and pastries to choose from) to munch on.
The best bit of a carrot cake is the icing on the top and this was divine. Not too sweet. And with a little marzipan carrot on the top. The cake was moist with little bits of carrot to give some texture.
Served on gorgeous, antique looking china, which made it feel like a proper tea party. I definitely recommend Brew for Two for a good weekend brunch or afternoon tea.
