Cafes and Coffee Shops
  • There's a coffee shop just opposite the station thats preety cool, got some nice art and photography work on the walls, Cafe 'Dianas' opposite the Walnut does a mean english breakfast.
  • The Le Parisien cafe outside the Tube station; the two bakeries on Church Lane; Cafe Larosh on Church Lane; a small sandwich shop on Hainault Road (near Leyton Midland Road railway station), although it's only open until 3pm (why, for God's sake?); Cafe Diana, a greasy spoon opposite McDonald's (which now has a "McCafe" where amazingly you can get a decent coffee); there's a cafe down the High Road near where the railway bridge crosses the road, next to the Age Concern charity shop; on the opposite side is a really dodgy looking greasy spoon.
  • Good selection of local cafs, and places to get a coffee. Good place near tube (le Parisien).
  • The saucy kipper chip shop outside the station do the best chips in Leytonstone....hmm....all goes down well after a few bevvies
  • San Marino's, The new one outside Leytonstone tube station is really nice, especially sitting outside in the sun :-)
  • Looks like Prospero's has now closed.
  • The prospero and the one next to the station and there are others too.....very trendy nowadays - especailly nice in summer actually - everyone sitting outside.
  • As you come out of the station (high road side) there's a cafe opposite that does a great fryup and just round the corner a new(ish) coffee shop with great art on the walls.
  • Leytonstone becomes trendy - Opening of the Prospero Book and Coffee Shop in Church Lane; serves organic foods, drinks, etc. Le Parisien Cafe outside the station for al fresco patisseries will be perfect when the summer comes.
  • Sunday mornings the church has tea and homemade cakes in the hall. Wonderful and cheap.
  • Normal cafes round here, this isn't Wanstead you know!
  • Percy Ingles is a traditional fave!! Just yer ordinary run of the mill cafes down here
