At last something a little more inventive (and slimming). We’ve busted out of our trousers over-doing it on the hot dogs and burgers in this town. Shutterbug brings crepes and cocktails to a well hidden spot just off Rivington Street. The décor is café style, laid back and you’ll more often than not find a glasses wearing, map tapping, freelancer scoffing on a smoke salmon, egg and asparagus crepe.

Their crepes are flippin’ good (savoury and sweet) and served up all day long whilst their cocktail list has had a helping hand from one of the boys around the corner in Callooh Callay- so you know they’re gonna be good. They’ve got Micheladas in the mix and a Mardi Gras Bourbon punch but it was early morning so we went for the Climpson’s Espresso Martini.

They’re open to holding private parties and come sunshine time they have a terrace out the back for smoking and sunning yourself. We also love the definition of a “Shutterbug”- an enthusiastic amateur photographer… we’re not by any chance in Shoreditch are we?
