Shopgirl Visits: Albion Cafe, London
I’m not sure if you remember this but I’ve been to London a few times over the past couple of months and on one trip I visited Albion, a cafe around the corner from Emily’s shop Caravan (I can’t wait until her next book is out!) and nearby to the lovely Squint (more here). If you are in London you must go to Caravan and Squint and then have lunch at Albion and grab some snacks for the road in their pretty little grocery store.
Albion is such a nice spot to linger for lunch, rain or shine. I had the best sandwich there, but warning: portions are huge and one sandwich is equivalent to two so if you are with a friend considering sharing one no matter how big your appetite – you will never finish it!
Don’t you love chalkboard menus? I never tire of them…
These photos were all taken by Jillian Leiboff who was also in London recently (she lives and works as a photographer in Australia), and since her photos captured the farmer’s market ambiance of Albion so nicely I thought I’d share them with you today with Jillian’s blessing, of course. Thank you Jillian for sharing these photos with decor8 today!
Have you been to Albion? It’s in Shoreditch @ 4 Boundary Street. If you haven’t visited yet it’s about time you did! :) Maybe this post is a gentle nudge? Here’s another little nudge, an abbreviated London guide from me to you. xo
