Oh Joy / Shoreditch, London

For part 2 of my trip to London, I'm sharing some of the things I did in Shoreditch. Known as the hipster area of London, to me it feels a little urban and a little gritty (in a cool way), and filled with great indie shops and cafes.

Our first stop for a cozy breakfast on a rainy morning in Shoreditch was Leila's Shop. It was a simple spot with hearty and filling items that felt like they were made from a wonderful local farm.

London has a lot of boutique/cafe-in-one type of stores. I loved this clothing shop, Aida, which happened to have a cafe with barista and coffee bar right in the front!

With the on and off rain, we had lots of little snacks as we sought shelter during the rain storms...

After a fun morning in Shoreditch, we decided to take an afternoon break over high tea at Sketch in the Piccadilly area of London. Sketch is known for being a more modern and less formal version of high tea. It's super quirky decor and delicious little bites were a fun end to the day before I crashed and needed a nap!
