If you were lucky enough to be in London over the weekend, you may have noticed how utterly stonkingly good the weather was. It was cold but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky as the sun beamed down and brightened up my days.
We decided to make the most of it on Sunday by hopping on our bikes and cycling down the Regents canal to Dock Kitchen where we enjoyed a cup of coffee on the deck before heading home via Lisboa Patisserie on Golbourne Road to pick up a couple of Portuguese tarts for dessert that evening. I could get used to life around here.
Dock Kitchen is a fantastic space situated across from Innocent Towers on the Regents canal. Home to designer Tom Dixon and chef Stevie Parle, Dock Kitchen serves a range of seasonal dishes that have been inspired by the chefs travels. I have never been for dinner or lunch but after seeing a number of plates over the weekend, we’re now planning a date to go back and enjoy the grub.
Although Dock Kitchen doesn’t serve as a café as such, we were able to sit out on the deck to enjoy a coffee, something that definitely would not have been as pleasurable had it not have been such a sunny day. Our flat whites were strong and creamy with hints of caramel. We sipped as the sun shone on our faces and both agreed that we can’t wait to return in the warmer months to make the most of the huge decking area outside the restaurant.
I’m looking forward to testing out the food offering at Dock Kitchen, but for now, memories of good coffee and extreme sunshine last.
