Luminary Bakery is one of our fave bakeries in London… and not just because they make some of the best cinnamon swirls we’ve ever had! The bakery is a social enterprise designed to offer opportunities for women from an economic and social disadvantage to build a future for themselves – and that means you can feast on cake guilt free!

If you’re after brunch in Stokey, there’s really only one place to go – The Good Egg. The Breakfast Burrito and Shakshuka are our faves, but if you’re after something sweet the Challah French Toast with a side of bacon will really hit the spot.

The Axe might not have been around for that long, but it’s won it’s way into our hearts – mainly because it does 60+ beers (and more than 22 of them are on tap). Yes, this pub is every beer lovers dream, and they even do negronis on tap for those who aren’t such huge fans. The food is also bang on with ’nduja on toast, halloumi fries and king scallops on lemon risotto all on the menu.

Boozers don’t get much more traditional than The Shakespeare. This place is still all about the drinks and apart from a few pickled eggs on the bar, food is off the menu – but you can always bring a pizza in from next door if a bag of pork scratching just won’t do! With TVs showing the footie, quiz nights and a good selection of beer, you can’t go wrong with a night in The Shakespeare.

We love a good Turkish and Cirrick is our go to spot in Stoke Newington. The menu is long, but we suggest going for a kebab and pidde to get the most out of this place. With reasonable prices, you won’t break the bank having a Turkish feast here either.

Hub is our go-to for new threads in Stokey. Stocking some of our fave brands including YMC, Wood Wood, Our Legacy, Ganni and Mads Nørgaard, it’s hard not to splurge here, but we all deserve a treat every now and then right?!

Wolf might possibly be our fave restaurant in Stokey. The seasonal Italian spot has got the food down and their Danish 60’s style interiors are more than insta-worthy. The menu changes regularly but if their cuttlefish braised with nduja, chickpeas, squid ink with lemon and chilli is on the menu order it and their tiramisu is to die for!

Clissold Park might not be the most well known or biggest park in London, but we love it. Whether you want to catch some rays, have a workout or see the animals (yes, they’ve got deer!) they’ve got it all.

The Restoration is a bit of a hidden gem in Stoke Newington. The vintage furniture shop is a bit like a maze and filled with restored pieces and retro lighting – it’s great for inspo even if you can’t afford it.

Searching for a place to get your Chinese fix in Stokey? Lu Lu is the place. The restaurant chefs are from Shanghai and there’s a decent dim sum section. The dumplings are all made fresh and by no means are they perfect – the casings are pretty thick but they are tasty and there’s no added MSG. They’re not badly priced either at just under £4 for three. Shout out to their lip numbing cucumber salad too.

Known for serving the best pizza in the world, and for appearing in Eat, Pray, Love, L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele chose Stokey for their first location outside of Italy. They serve just two types of pizza – the Margherita topped with mozzarella and tomato and the Marinara with tomato, basil, garlic and no cheese. The base is incredible; it’s certainly some of the best pizza dough we’ve had and the sauce is delish (but we do like more toppings). Not only has it stolen a pizz’a our hearts for the taste, but the cheap price too at just £6.90 for the Marinara and a pound more for the Margherita.

In need of a cocktail? The Mint Gun Club is the place to go, and it ain’t no dimly lit basement bar. Themed as a tea room and aperitivo bar, the space is bright and airy thanks to huge windows and it makes for a nice change from the usual east London set up. The cocktails are inspired by the owner Richard Hunt’s travels around the globe. Original cocktails and a fresh vibe – grabbing a drink won’t feel like the same-old-same-old here.
