Martello Hall

Hackney’s Martello Hall was probably my favorite restaurant/bar that we visited in London. It’s a gorgeous little-bit-of-everything with a working space, kitchen, and small courtyard on the ground floor and a cozy cocktail room above. The main eating hall and work-space works on a hot-desk system—customers can pay £10 a day or £25 a month for unlimited coffee and wi-fi on weekdays from 9-5. 

Most of the food and drink here is locally sourced—the coffee is from Ozone Coffee Roasters, their food is mostly made on site in their wood oven and charcoal grill, and they have their own gin distillery. Even their crockery comes from a local ceramics producer. We came for brunch on a Saturday and left very much satisfied. Added plus: the servers are so, so nice.
