A visit to Happy Kitchen

Arch 393, Mentmore Terrace, London Fields, E8 3PH

I've been meaning to drop by Happy Kitchen for ages and never quite made it, but yesterday the March sunshine encouraged me to wander further afield than usual and I came across it quite by accident. It's not exactly on the beaten track, but if you're happy exploring London Fields you'll find it not far from Pub on the Park.

Unfortunately, having had a BBQ pork Banhmi11 baguette for lunch at Broadway Market and then a rather generous hunk of baked cheesecake from CakeHole  at Hackney Homemade, I was stuffed and couldn't manage anything to eat. However, I did have a very yummy coffee (coffee beans from St Ali) and can vouch for the cakes looking amazing.

With a focus on organic whole foods, sweetened only by fruit sugars and no gluten, eggs, dairy or wheat, my glutounous side at first felt at risk of being disappointed. However, the smorgasboard of cakes adorning the counter put this to rest, and given they have their own range of brownie bars, I know these girls understand my sweet tooth, as well as my waistline. Yummy, decadant cakes that might also be good for you? Never?

The proof is, of course, in the pudding, so I will have to return on an empty stomach and sample their baking. They do pancakes at weekends so I think I'll have to give those a go soon, as well as perhaps invest in some of their vitality-inducing granola and grains (they have a 'pick 'n' mix' nut bar...).

Happy Kitchen are on Facebook, Twitter and have a website.
