Yes, of course I had to kick start things with the most instagramable cafe in East London. The little gem that is Palm Vaults. Nestled in the busy streets of Hackney Central – this adorable little cafe offers one of the best brunches & cakes in Hackney.. Yes I said it. And to make things even better the majority of the cakes are vegan and delicious!
On my first trip there I had the carrot cake …… ohhhhh my ! It was vegan and incredible. So moist and creamy – as we all know a lot of carrot cakes have the tendency to be a tad dry (one of my worst fears) Not this one though!
This combined with an almond milk flat white, we had a winner winner

The second time I went I turned up at 11 o’clock on a Sunday with no booking (big mistake, big, huge) Ouch I waited almost an hour to be seated (brunch turned into lunch) but it didn’t disappoint. Avocado & feta on sourdough toast, pink coffee & delicious cake! (It was my birthday leave me alone.)
Its not just the food that people come here for though.. It’s the beautiful interior. Being an Interior Designer myself, this place has got it right for the area. Mixing vintage pieces with contemporary, it creates a boudoir feel. Pink marble, pastel pinks & greens and lots of brass finishes. Finish this off with hanging plants, beautiful ceramics and cacti you create a Miami breakfast dream.
