Market Cafe Description

Located on Broadway Market in East London, this café, bar and dining room is taking the London restaurant scene back to basics. Inspired by classic Italian “Formica” cafes of the 1950’s, Market Café serves rustic London-Italian food and drink with a modern take on the ‘breakfast and bolognaise’ menu.

London-Italian dishes play host on this simple but bold, modestly priced menu - no airs or graces here. Steak and kidney pudding for two, hand cut tagliatelles with meat sauces, truffled rarebit, jam doughnuts and hot chocolate, and home made Hackney Down’s Honey ice cream. As one would expect in

the East End, the drinks list is as important as the food. Locally roasted coffee is served alongside craft beers, punches, cups, fizzes, and a good value wine list. Market Café opens for breakfast, lunch and supper all week, and offers weekend market go-ers all day dining including elevenses and high tea.

The café is split into a 60 seat dining room, more informal 45 seated bar and café, and plenty of outdoor seating for those warmer months. Located in the heart of the buzzing Broadway Market, the café combines a mixture of classic café styles. Reclaimed tongued and groove, booth seating, Formica tabletops, re-structured chairs and a vintage chocolate cabinet salvaged from an East End sweet shop sits on display.

Market Café is the first project from Hugo Warner since leaving benugo in 2010. Having lived in Hackney for over 20 years, his latest project is a true labour of love, combining his passion for historical reference and love of gastronomy.

The menu and kitchen are in the talented hands of Chef James Adams, who uses fresh and seasonal ingredients to create an evolving menu. Having worked in some of London most exciting restaurants such as Canteen, Fifteen, and St. John, James was most recently part of the culinary team at the famous River Café where he honed in on his passion for quality Italian food and his belief that there is “No substitute for flavour”.

Market Café is cementing itself in the local makeup of the East London community and looking to commandeer a nearby site to open its own butchers.

Market Cafe encourages elbows on tables, grazing and communal eating.
