Hackney is an ever developing area, becoming trendier and more popular everyday. There is always a new place to hang out and better things to do every time we go. Below are our Fetch & Follow’s top 5 places we love to visit with our furry friends when in the area
Wilton Way Café
(63 Wilton Way, London E8 1BG)
Placed in the heart of Hackney, very close to London Fields, Wilton Way Café is a lovely coffee shop where we love spending some time in the morning before heading to the park. The very welcoming staff and its onsite radio station creates a very unique and lovely atmosphere. We love sitting down on the café’s outside bench while sipping a delicious coffee and do what we do best; people and dogs watching.
(411 Mare St, London E8 1HY)
This place needs no introduction; one of London’s most ‘instagrammable’ café, Palm Vaults is also one of our favourite place to go with the dogs around Hackney. Much more than a pretty place perfect ‘for the gram’, their drinks and food menu is heavenly! The Palm Vaults team is very friendly and will always make sure we have the best time when going there. Only a few minutes away from the station and Hackney Downs Park, Palm Vaults is the perfect little spot for a coffee/ vegan cake before an afternoon stroll in the park!
The Old Ship
(2 Sylvester Path, London E8 1EN)
On the way to London Fields from Hackney central station, situated on Sylvester Path, one of Hackney’s most adorable back streets, the Old Ship Inn Hackney is our ‘go-to pub’. Dogs are (very) welcome inside and outside, a water bowl gets filled up every time we walk in and ready to enjoy before we even get to order our own drinks. Their Sunday roasts (veggie and non) are tasty and generous. The Old Ship Inn is a pub where we feel at home, its peaceful and warm atmosphere stole our hearts a few years ago and there isn’t a single day we can pass by without the dogs trying to drag us in!
