LONG WHITE CLOUD
Long White Cloud is a cafe and gallery space located on Hackney Road, close to Hoxton Station. It’s conveniently a 10 minute walk away from both Broadway Market & Colombia Road Market and is a great place to stop by to give your tired legs a rest after you’ve bought your fresh food or flowers.
A friend proposed making Long White Cloud my local coffee shop when I moved to the area a couple of months back. While I do not go here anywhere near as much as I should, it’s not for lack of wanting.
Long White Cloud serve Monmouth coffee which unsurprisingly (the co-founder is a kiwi) is very good. It’s not just the coffee that impresses as the food is also delicious. I opted for mushrooms in a garlic sauce for Sunday brunch and it was excellent.
The cafe has art pieces on the walls and often holds exhibitions (more info on the website), adding something a bit different to the space, which for me personally is very refreshing. The artwork changes on a regular basis, giving you a unique experience every time you stop by.
This place is a must if you find yourself near Hackney Road.
