Pitfield café is a lovely café-restaurant located in Pitfield Street, East London. I came across the place last weekend, as I went for a coffee with some colleagues.
What first caught my attention was the café's exterior; light green painted, with wooden chairs and tables and a Victorian-like sign. The interior is even more impressive, having this vintage like decoration, along with quirky furniture and pots with plants that give visitors the impression of being at home.
The decoration, however, is not Pittsfield's café main highlight. The food proved to be equally great. As it was early, I ordered a regular, eat in, cappuccino for the generous prize of £2.75 plus a chicken flatbread £5.30. The order was directly brought to our table by the staff on a lovely presentation, with the cappuccino being served in a ceramic mug with the cream on top forming a heart.
After finishing my meal, I didn't want to miss the dessert, so I ordered a Chocolate Fudge Bar to take away (£3.10), and I was pleased to find its taste one of the best I ever tried.
Pitfield Café, as I found out looking at the menu, is an ideal place to have breakfast (serves the typical scrambled eggs on toast), lunch (salads, lasagnas, a wide range of flatbreads and baguettes), and of course, desserts, coffee and tea.
However, the café is not just a place to eat in. In the backside on the left-hand side, there are several homeware items available to purchase. With porcelain mugs, tea cups, wallpapers, lamps and carpets, the café's exhibition gallery has a diverse selection of objects that could look great in anyone's home.
I highly recommend Pitfield Cafe to anybody who would like a peaceful and beautiful place to socialize or organize small events.
