The Window

The Window

The aptly named Window, with its convenient grab and go window on bustling Hackney road, is the perfect pit stop after a Saturday morning spent exploring Broadway Market’s treats and spoils or as a reward after negotiating the hustle of Sunday’s Columbia Road flower market. If you have the time (and they have the space) try sitting at one of their four tiny tables and watching Hackney’s weird and wonderful residents pass you by. Serving Nude Espresso and a small selection of pastries, toasties and cakes, Window offers relief from a seemingly endless stretch of bland handbag shops.
