Recharge Café, Bethnal Green - Turkish/English fusion in East London!

Scrambled eggs on sourdough with sucuk, avocado and halloumi

Under five minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station you'll find Recharge Café, an exquiste little local eaterie offering a delightful fusion of Turkish and English mid-morning fare. The balance between modern East London chic and no fuss British brekkie is handled masterfully with just the right amount of scattered herbs and pumpkin seeds topping a generous dollop of no nonsense hearthy ingredients.
There is a choice between fancy full English (served with hash browns and black pudding), trendy Turkish (which includes halloumi, avocado and sucuk - a lightly spiced Turkish sausage) or a veggie option which is kind of a combination of the two, minus the meaty bits!
There's also a ham, feta and spinach omelette on the menu and all manner of tasty treats on sourdough, including roasted butternut squash or smoked salmon! They also do an excellent flat white, for all you coffee lovers!
Everything is so fresh, full of flavour and lovingly prepared we just can't help going back for more time and time again! This place is so East London right now but, probably due to its unassuming location, manages to side step any pretentious, hipster vibe - what you get is a relaxed local atmosphere with a refreshing, international take on the classic brunch menu.
Friendly staff, great coffee and well priced - everything is between £5 - £7! Highly recommended!
