Bar Kick's little brother Cafe Kick has all the same football vibes in a much cosier setting. It still has the table footy, flags and misc memorabilia on the walls and ceilings as well as some great happy hour deals (every day 4-7pm). With tasty lunch offerings like soup and salads (the bread dipped in oil is delish) - in addition to sharing boards in the evenings, this isn't just a spot for the football lovers.

***Closed. Liam. 02/18*** This Vietnamese Cafe does baguettes (banh mi), salads, pho, coffees and smoothies. It's a great spot to have lunch outside, even on a slightly chillier day, as you can grab one of their warming noodle soups. They also do Vietnamese iced coffee which is made with condensed milk - ideal for those who need a sugar and caffeine rush.
Content & Co
** Unpub 11th May - closed according to Duncs & Cameron ** Located amongst the top notch selection of quaint stores on Exmouth Market, Content & Co is a timeless independent menswear retailers that's been holding things down since 2013. Stocking a high end selection of mens clothing and lifestyle products, expect to see the likes of Alden, Barbour, Nike and Canada Goose hanging on the rails. Always have your finger on the buzzer when it's sale time - some of their more expensive goodies get seriously slashed in price!
Berber & Q Shawarma Bar
After learning the ropes under Ottolenghi, Josh Katz opened Berber and Q and started serving up some of the tastiest grilled meats around. It takes the same Middle Eastern and North African flavours that Yotam is famous for and pops them in a more relaxed setting. Shawarma (spit roasting) is the order of the day. This goes for lamb, chicken and cauliflower alike. Expect bowls of rice and lentils topped with Lamb shawarma, harissa and anchovy; or cauliflower shawarma with golden sultanas and pine nuts. To finish off we'll be locking our lips around an ice cream pita sandwich with tahini soft-serve and caramelised banana.
Exmouth Coffee Company
This chic independent coffee shop a short hop from both Brick Lane and Whitechapel Gallery is a must for hungry folk lurking in the area. Boasting perfect pastries, creamy cakes, quaint quiches, sultry salads and an in-house coffee roasting unit, this little haunt has everything you could possibly wish for when you're stomach is growling and your eyelids are starting to weigh a ton.
