A coffee shop at the top of Brick Lane, part of a small chain.
This place is in a former pub, as is clear from the outside, with its bright gold letters proclaiming 'The Jolly Butchers'. However, there's little inside to bear this out, though it's brightly painted and pleasant enough. There are recycled leather couches in an relaxing area up a few steps at the back, as well as a line of small square tables near the front just past the counter, where more than one customer was engrossed on their laptop computer.
Coffee is fine like all the branches of this chain, and there's a selection of pastries and cakes. Ewan had a slice of Stollen which was perfectly nice.
