Smithfield Cafe

Smithfield Cafe, 59 Long Lane, Smithfield, City of London, EC1, 2004 • 24-hour pit-stop for Smithfield’s traders and, more recently, hipsters. I think it’s still there, though the area is changing swiftly. “Stepping into the cafe is like walking back in time to the Great Depression,” says Yelp, while Tripadvisor puts it in the top 35% of London restaurants (that’s #6,031 of 17,213).
