Climpson and Sons is a busy coffee shop on Broadway Market that's pretty much always busy. At weekends it’s almost impossible. It’s worth it though. The coffee is some of the best in town and you’ll be the envy of east London if you can actually nab a seat. Know that if you can’t face the queue, they also have a stall down the street where the wait might be shorter.
