"Craving" in London is one of my favourite cafes. It's ideal for work but I also enjoy their beers on tap, cocktails and varied food offerings.

In a hidden industrial estate, you will find Craving, which marks the entrance to the Mill Co. Project – a social enterprise providing workshops and studios for independent artists and other creative types. This café is a favourite of mine. It lends itself perfectly to sipping a coffee while cracking on with some all-important life admin. Unlike some London spots, here laptops are welcome and they offer both Wi-Fi and plenty of power outlets. If you don’t come to work, don’t worry - they also serve delicious beers on tap and make gourmet cocktails.

A delicious menu of Asian fusion food will satisfy your hunger. They also run evening events celebrating art and music, check the website for details. Perhaps the most special thing about this place is the atmosphere. The staff are friendly and the surroundings calm – an ideal spot to pass a couple of hours or catch up with friends.

Padella – Best pasta in town

"Padella" in London Bridge is a legend of a restaurant. It's potentially my favourite eatery in the city and makes the best pasta outside of Italy.

Book 28 Library – A tiny queer utopia

What really sets Book 28 apart, is their commitment to sourcing intersectional literature that would be unlikely to appear in your average public library.
