Hackney Bureau (Andor Bureau) @ Mare Street, Hackney

今日、Ombraに行ったら定休日だったので、向かいにあるHackney Bureau (Andor Bureau)でランチした。塗装の途中で力尽きてギブアップしたかのような外観だけれど、中はusedのテーブル&椅子のシンプルな内装にアートギャラリーが融合した、典型的イースト・ロンドン風インテリア。客もアートっぽい人たちや若者が多い。

その見た目通り、メニューもシンプル、朝食が数種、ランチはサラダとサンドイッチ数種ずつがあるだけだ(日替わりメニューもあり)。また、ペイストリーやケーキ類も何種類かある。今は午後7時までの営業だけれど、将来は11時まで営業時間を延長し、ディナーも提供する予定だそうだ。サンドイッチ単品で£5と値段は少々お高めだけれど、オーガニック・ベーカリーのE5 Bakehouseから仕入れたパンと新鮮な材料を使ったサンドイッチはフレッシュでなかなか美味しいし、使用しているセカンドハンドの食器も趣味がいい。La Marzoccoで淹れたコーヒーも文句なし。このカフェ、なかなかの拾い物かも。

Ombra was closed when we went there today, so we had lunch at Hackney Bureau (Andor Bureau) across the street. The exterior looks half-finished, like they gave up painting half-way and ran away. However, its typical rusty + grungy East End style interior with used tables and chairs is less scary and also the space is used as an art gallery as well.

As it looks, its menu is also simple; just few kinds of breakfast menu and few kinds of sandwiches + some daily dishes during lunch time, as well as some pastries and cakes. At this moment the café closes at 7pm but it is planning to open for dinner in the future. The sandwich costs £5, which is a bit pricy for a sandwich, but the bread from an organic bakery E5 Bakehouse and fresh ingredients can justify the price. The choice of its second hand dishes and cups & saucers are in good taste. Finally the espresso made with La Marzocco is very good. A lucky find at the end.

モッツァレラチーズとトマトのホットサンドとイタリアン・サラミ、トマト、ロケットのサンドイッチ(共に£5.00也)/Toasted mozzarella and beef-tomato sandwich and Italian salami sandwich with tomato and rocket (£5.00@)
