A proper workers’ favourite, the Arches is a friendly caf tucked under Bethnal Green Overground that is seemingly required, by some unwritten social law, to always have at least two people eating a combination of pig and yellow runny eggs. And you should be one of them. Like any good caf, your choice is up to you, but being proud heathens, a plate of bacon, crispy chips, a pool of baked beans, together with a runny yolk is a combo we find hard to turn down.
