After a trek along the River Lea (Lee?) we stopped for lunch at the Counter Cafe in Hackney Wick. My husband has been angling to try it for months, and we were finally in the neighborhood. The service was slow (but we were warned). Our lunches were delicious. My husband declared his veggie breakfast the best he had ever had. I think this was because of the homemade baked beans, gigantes beans in tomato sauce. I had the bacon and egg baguette with an egg and avocado. It was difficult to eat and maintain any semblance of elegance, but was quite delicious. We intend to return.
