No secret, here. I’m not a morning person. Like every other grumpy fellow who you can’t approach without risking your life before they had their coffee, I have my secrets to help me get through that part of the day. Let me introduce to our Shoreditch dealers.

Coffee dealer: NEPA

Best – and closest – Shoreditch coffee made by our favourite barista, Melin. I am not talking about the Americanos you can find in the regular coffee shops. This one will instantly wake you up and improve your energy level. I usually go for a double – sometime a triple – expresso and Marie’s favourite is the Chai latte! They also have freshly made delicious salads and pies for lunch. Definitely pop in for Nepalese dumplings Wednesday, really yummy! Find out more here:

‘Sweet for my brain’: SUNBAKES

Since I turned gluten-free – yes me too! – I have been having troubles finding my sugary morning fix. But last week my prayers were answered when Sunbakes appeared at Old Street station. They have a lot of choices from cookies to muffins and everything is gluten-free, Paleo, dairy-free… Sweet and healthy, perfect for me. My favourite? The chocolate and hazelnut cookie. I’m seriously thinking about finding a way to make the Sunbakes ladies my new besties! Find out more here:
