This place opened last year and is one of Clapton’s (Hackney) best kept secrets. Inside it is a mini jungle! I love the decor. The green patterned tiled table tops with the wooden and wrought iron frames – it is both hackney urban and Mediterranean chic.
It also has space for buggies which is always a bonus these days!
The cakes are absolutely delicious but there are also some of my favourite brunch dishes like smashed avo on toast with poached eggs – yum. If you’re avo toast-ed out however you’ll find some welcomed curve-balls in the brunch game in the name of smoked haddock kedgeree and 12hr pork hash.
The menu takes you from brunch all the way through to the evening on Friday and Saturday where they stay open until 10pm instead of the usual 5. The avocado and chicken bun is definitely something I would plan on going back for. And in true Hackney style, you’ll find loads of vegan and veggie options. A ‘Waffles & Treats’ section of their menu doesn’t expire after lunch either, so you can satisfy your sweet tooth with fresh baked Belgian waffles and Affogato until bedtime!
If you are there in the evening they also have 2 for £10 on all cocktails!🥂
The Vincent is definitely worth the visit if you’re in the local area or the trip if you’re after somewhere to grab a bite of an evening with friends.
