Dalston isn’t known for its child-friendly nature, however new restaurant Nancy’s Pantry looks set to change that.
We visited with raging hangovers to try out brunch, so the tagline “Where children are as important as the food” made us somewhat fearful as to what to expect.
However we really shouldn’t have worried. These guys have managed to create a cool studio feel space while serving up super affordable healthy food, and just happen to have created a great space for the kids to be kids at the same time.
Laid back communal tables for the adults to congregate at complement the grass areas for the children to run around bare feet if they so wish. It seemed the kind of place you could easily get chatting to your neighbour – think hip supper club, but for breakfast, with kids.
The organic healthy food is unbelievable value, dishing up everything from blueberry pancakes (£4.50) to cheese boards (£7), vibrant salads (£4) and hearty classics like cottage pie with sweet potato mash crust (£8).
And these are adult prices!!
The children menu looked just adorable with Teddy Bear Toast for breakfast and “tapas” finger food for the toddlers. How cute!
And if you do happen to have a child in tow, they’ll just love the overhead projectors displaying their art on the walls or the “Object Zone” where all sorts of exciting activities take place.
This takes the “Babycino” to a whole new level!
