REVIEW: The Vincent, Hackney

WHAT? A light & airy Hackney cafe covered in gorgeous greenery and boasting a large outdoor space, championing live music, craft beers and infinitely Instagrammable brunch plates.

WHERE? Five years ago the owners took the Sebright Arms just behind Hackney road from a boarded up pub awaiting demolition to a thriving hipster hub. You’ll find The Vincent super close to Hackney Downs, drawing the Columbia Road market crowd for an afternoon tipple or two in the sunshine.

WHY GO? The brunch menu is an embarrassment of riches, starting with huge, bubbling skillets of baked eggs (we loved Huevos Rancheros with swirls of guacamole, spiced tomato, beans, chorizo and sweet pepper sauce with buttery sourdough) through to crunchy, golden buttermilk fried chicken and waffles.

Herbivores are usually well catered for – the veggie breakfast is a thing of beauty, a towering plate of roast tomato and mushrooms, chipotle baked beans, fried potatoes and grilled halloumi. The mushroom vegan balls are equally impressive, then there’s ‘Vegeree’, fritters of spiced sweet potato, helium and golden beetroot served with curried rice, boiled egg, golden raisins, fresh herbs, peas and mango salsa.

ANYTHING ELSE? The bottomless offering is ace – definitely lone to be planned in for a sunny weekend. For just £17 you can enjoy endless mimosas or Prosecco for 90 minutes.
