This bar is located on the bank of the river Thames. Nice to sit there, have a drink and enjoy the view

I wish I could have got to know this place earlier. It is so far my favourite coffee shop in Shoreditch. Love the environment and the atmosphere. I really enjoyed the coffee, lunch and reading on a lovely, quiet Tuesday afternoon there.

Great meeting place for like minded cyclists. Great atmosphere. Food is average. Shame there are not more similar cycling cafes around.

This is an interesting combination of bikeshop, bar, cafe, restaurant and student/writer hangout. A hipster haven of sorts. However you chose to define this place, the burgers are fabulous! Fresh, tasty and interesting! Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area.

I would definitely look for the pop up kiosk on TripAdvisor. Otherwise the best option is to put a negative review on the 'Look Mum No Hands' page
