Towpath: Hackney (london)

My husband walks past this little gem on Regents canal daily, so we stopped in on Friday evening for a drink, some olives and nibbles. For about £10 we each had a glass of a very nice Italian red wine, some fresh green olives, Spanish omelet and some toast with fresh cheese and tomatoes. It is a really charming little cafe. It is located directly on the canal south of the intersection with Kingsland Road. I intend to frequent it plenty.

          yeah, towpath is lovely, quite one of the nicest places in London. Was last there for the party they threw to mark the end of the native oyster season, my best eating of recent memory.
