From Deli to dining – welcome to the next spot you have to eat at for brunch!Pizza East is situated in a former tea warehouse, in Shoreditch in the always bustling city of London. As well as the delightful sit-in eatery, Pizza East also sells fresh Italian meats and cheeses to purchase from their in-house Deli!The wonderful joint – famed for its wood oven pizzas – is large and spacious (as you’d expect from an ex-warehouse) with an industrial interior vibe. So, even on a Saturday, you’re more than likely to snag seat!
And snagged a comfy seat we did! We nestled in leather booth seats and wasted no time in scanning the mouth-watering menu for brunch options!But drinks first! We scored ourselves a morning bellini each…I couldn’t resist trying a signature ‘East Side’ cocktail. And this is the delicious ‘New Fashioned’ that I highly recommend if you’re a fan of whisky!It would be wrong to visit an eatery that boasted the name ‘Pizza’ in the name and not order one of their rounds to try!
We covered our pizza of choice in olives and basil, and hefty helping of cheese.
I was in a more serious breakfast kind of mood and ordered from their Saturday brunch menu.And ended up tucking almost before the plate was on the table! My dish was stacked with poached eggs, sweet-potato cakes and streaky bacon – yum!
Who needs the green stuff with a serving up like this?The prices for cocktails are pretty a standard amount for London. While the food is practically a steal, in terms of London rates! Tummies full, and feeling very happy, we headed out to explore the rest of the area. Pizza East is sat on the street corner just across the road from BoxPark. If you haven’t checked out the rather unique retail unit – built entirely out of storage containers – you better make it a priority.
These eclectically filled spaces sport some big brands you know, but also feature independent occupants that change weekly! There is always someone new to find and discover!With good prices, good food, and good location; you’ve got no excuse to not have this delectable place on your list of eateries next time you’re in London!
