East London Coffee Shops

I live in Bow, east London, so there's a little bit of bias here as most of the coffee shops on the site are in my local area. There's a ton of venues to choose from around here. In my immediate area there's about 10 coffee shops on Roman Road alone. But slightly further afield there's also great places like Paper & Cup in Shoreditch, which not only serves great coffee by Union Roast, but is a social enterprise giving people out of long term work an opportunity for work experience.

Below are just the coffee shops that I like for one reason or another. There's probably some you might think are missing and they will not be on the site because I've either not personally been there, or I just didn't think it was that great for some reason.
