The Pavilion Café in Victoria Park must be one of London’s finest park cafés. Situated in an ornamental pavilion that has been revamped with a clean modern interior, the café is famous for it’s picturesque location and delicious menu.
It sits right at the side of the revamped lake and in all weathers it’s glorious to sit outside and soak in the atmosphere of the park. The food menu features amazing breakfasts (including my favourite – crab benedict), lunchtime specials like quiches and salads, and some of the best cakes in East London.
There’s always a lively atmosphere, with Hackney hipsters integrating seamlessly with young families and true locals. It’s the perfect place for a pit-stop when enjoying the delights of London’s finest park, whatever the weather.
