The first time I passed by the beautiful storefront of the Albion was on my way back from the Columbia Road Flower Market. I knew I had to try this place and without thinking twice, I walked right in. Having already had breakfast at Lily Vanilli Bakery, my partner in crime and I went for tea and pudding.

Located in the very trendy Shoreditch, Albion forms part of the Boundary Project, Terence Conran’s multidisciplinary space which comprises Boundary Rooftop (with killer views over the city – on my to-do list when the weather gets warmer!), Boundary Restaurant (I’ve had a birthday dinner there and fully recommend it!) and finally, the Albion. The entrance space functions as a small grocery shop that sells homemade bread, cakes, croissants, seasonal greens and various foodie delicacies which are nicely displayed. Right next to it, there’s the cafe which serves simple yet mouthwatering dishes at good prices.

My rhubarb crumble was really good with just the right amount of tartness and got devoured rather quickly. Next time, i am keen on trying their lunch wish also seemed pretty good. If you’re looking for simple British food, a bustling atmosphere, free wi-fi and homemade treats (I looove their scones!), then the Albion is well worth a try. You’ll love it!
