1. look mum no hands!
49 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HX
We like riding our bikes and drinking coffee. We had an idea about combining stuff we like to make something special. We found a great space in a great location, cleaned it up and called it ‘look mum no hands!’ We show films and cycle sport on our big projector screen. We have a workshop and two great mechanics who fix bikes. We have people who are really into making good food and coffee. We sell BEER!

The Old Shoreditch Station is home to our café bar where we focus on great coffee during the daytimes and on whiskeys, wines and specialty beers in the night-times. Constituting two rooms, it started its life as a small café ancillary to our store no-one, but in recent years it has grown in size and stature, hosting smaller scale exhibits, product launches, intimate gigs.

213 Old Street, London, EC1V 9NR
The Shoreditch Grind is a new, ultra high quality espresso bar on London’s Old Street Roundabout.

5. Nude Espresso

Obtaining the finest coffee is a labour of love. We scour the World hand selecting only the fittest, ripest green beans for our London roastery, wholesale coffee and online coffee shop.

Only then can they be tasted, blended and packaged, creating the perfect ingredient for a sublime sensory experience.
6. Full Stop
202, Brick Lane, London, E1 6SA
What was once a really good little antique shop is now an even better café. It has been designed to look like a sitting room from another decade, complete with 1960’s kitchen cupboards, blue Formica table tops, couches, wall lamps and old photographs. We keep it simple serving a few pastries and cakes to go with your coffee and in the evening stay open late serving alcohol, a treat in London where a café rarely stays open past 6pm.
