Shepherdess Cafe, East London.


We first became aware of the infamous Shepherdess Cafe when we bought the NFT Guide To London 2008. Before we moved down to London we made a list of all the places that were MUST SEE/MUST VISIT to eat, drink and be generally merry.

The Shepherdess Cafe was on our list of eateries. We’ve lived in London for two years now and as a matter of pure coincidence, when we moved last summer, we moved to the same street that the Shepherdess Cafe resides on. Strange, but true. We commute past the cafe every day on our routes to work; about 2 weeks ago we were at the traffic lights and saw Mr Jamie Oliver sat in the window of the cafe (the windows are a sight to behold in themselves!).

We’ve never had a chance to get down to the cafe. We’re too lazy to get up ‘early’ for work and it closes at 4pm. However, recently, I’m rubbish at sleeping in on a weekend… So  when I woke up at 8am yesterday and couldn’t get back to sleep we decided to actually do something this weekend – “Let’s treat ourselves to the Shepherdess CAFFFF!”. And my god, what a treat!

I ate about a quarter – they give you the biggest portions EVER! All the above and a huge mug of (really nice!) tea came to £12. CHEAP CHEAP.

I have to say though, the sausages just weren’t to the standard of Rossi’s (RIP). But aside from that, it was well ‘lush’.

The Shepherdess Cafe is located on City Road, 5 mins from Old Street tube.

Clearly, I need this helmet and matching bicycle….


oh dear. oh dear. CHANEL have branched out into LOADS of sports ‘gear’. I ACTUALLY need a helmet and this is thee one.

While I’m at it I might ‘upgrade’ my bicycle (Betty) to this swish new CHANEL (Coco) bicycle.

Well, one can but hope…

My very strange cycle home tonight…


I’ve just got in my my bicycle commute home and I wanted to share my thoughts.

It felt like the most surreal ‘rain’ ever. I actually feel like I’m in the Truman Show. The rain wasn’t like “normal” rain. It was coming down like an actual shower and it wasn’t cold?! SO so weird!! ALSO, the whole of Great Eastern Street was completely water-logged and apart from a few dents in the road, it doesn’t normally even have puddles when it rains! Very strange!

Your thoughts?

We’ve moved home…again!


Terribly sorry to announce…we’ve moved house, again! So no internet for about 3 weeks! Rubbish! I’ll do what I can inbetween the lack of web and unpacking!

I will indeed be posting photos of said new house as we think it’s our best yet! 😀 We love it, and we love Angel Islington!

This is the view of Regents Canal from our living room window!

It literally takes 25 minutes to get to work for me, and about 8 minutes for James to cycle to work! Amazing! No more horrible commute, thanks TFL for nothing!

Ms. Judy Pink.
