Behold: the cutest little bakery. Paddy and I happened to come across this gem when rifling through my very new and worthwhile purchase, Cafe London by Vena Alkayat (see my bit about it in my July Favourites here) as we were looking for East London-specific eateries where we could go pick up something quick.

E5 Bakehouse is literally right next door to London Fields overground station, underneath the main railway bridge. It's tiny, but cosy, and everything is freshly baked. Paddy was very happy to see the sheer amount of bread available!

It took me a short age to decide what I wanted; I settled on the lemon drizzle cake and OH MY was that a good idea. Bar my mum's homemade version, I think it's the best one I've had in my life. I paired it with an iced coffee (of course) whilst Paddy had marmite and peanut butter (not together!) on sourdough.

It was a little pricey for what it was, but to be honest, where in London isn't pricey nowadays? We'll definitely be back if we're in the area!
