London Fields

Discover our top places to step out locally

Ah London Fields, where do we begin…

Our Earl of East story was born of the area, a shared vision that was realised first as a market stall on Netil Market, then as a shop in a container in the same space, growing into our first bricks and mortar studio store on Gransden Avenue, a space we still produce our mainline products from today.

Broadway Market and London Fields play home to some wonderful businesses and stores, plus a high quota of excellent places to eat and drink. There’s plenty to do here any day of the week, though it’s on a Saturday that the market is on, and so if you’re able to visit then (and quite like a bustling crowd) it’s a must.

Earl of East, Gransden Avenue

Our building on Gransden Avenue has been at the heart of our business since 2017, when we moved from our container store in nearby Netil Market after happening upon the handsome former warehouse. The building serves as a neighbourhood store, coffee counter, production space and workshop venue. We very much love a chat, and visitors are always welcome, so do pop by.

Why visit?

Candles, coffee, a warm welcome, a workshop.

Pophams

Always trust in Pophams for the loveliest way to begin your day. The pastries are out of this world, and the coffee is excellent. They also have an evening menu, their speciality being fresh & seasonal pasta dishes.
@pophamsbakery

Why Visit?

Beautiful pastries, carefully prepared coffee, pasta in the evening.

Bright

The lineage here is unbeatable, with several of the boroughs gastronomic finest conspiring to bring us a neighbourhood restaurant to be proud of. A small menu that is thoughtful and unexpected, with a wine list you’d expect from the founders of P. Franco & Nobel.
@bright_restaurant

Why Visit?

Considered small plates & heartier dishes, top notch wine list

Market Cafe

Unmissable on the corner of Broadway Market and Regents Canal, a good spot for people watching on a sunny day.

Why Visit?

For a Bloody Mary and a fry up, and to watch the world go by from the outside tables.

Pavilion Bakery

Sister to the inimitable Pavilion in Victoria Park, Pavilion Broadway Market is never without a lunchtime queue (and rightly so). Get there early enough to avoid missing out on the filled sandwiches.
@wearethepavilion

Why Visit?

Huge and unpretentious sandwiches and soups, bread and baked goods and great coffee.

La Bouche

Founded way back in 2004, La Bouche have been intrinsic in the turning tide of Broadway Market. The place is always busy with people queuing for bist and pieces, or ordering one of their lovely salads or sandwiches for lunch. They’ve just introduced a no wi-fi policy, work is bad for your guts apparently!
@labouchebroadway

Why Visit?

To stock up on hard to come by store cupboard essentials, and for a little lunch.

She’s Lost Control

She’s Lost Control’s bricks and mortar store is everything you’d want from a spiritual wellness store. Built from natural materials, with crystal dust mixed into the raw plaster walls, the place is fresh, accessible and supportive.
@slc_london

Why Visit?

For a moment of calm, for expert advice on crystal healing.

Climpson & Sons

Pioneers of the East London coffee scene and beyond, Climpsons set up shop on Broadway Market what seems like many moons ago. Their dedication to flavour and quality unfaltering, and they roast their own beans, so grab a bag for home while you’re visiting.
@climpsonandsons

Why Visit?

Coffee! Etc.

E5 Bakehouse

A behemoth of a bakery/ cafe, their sourdough is legendary. They mill their flower, roast their own coffee beans and grow a fair amount of their ingredients. Provenance and integrity are important to Ben and his huge team, and the quality sings.
@e5bakehouse

Why Visit?

It’s a must visit when in London Fields

The Spurstowe Arms

The quintessential London Fields boozer, situated to the north of the park on the lovely Wilton Way. Totally worth a visit, there’s tables out front and a lovely garden out back if the weather is kind.
@thespurstowearms

Why Visit?

For a decent pint and some good food in a great setting.
