The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.

What time is breakfast served from?
Breakfast finishes at 10am on weekdays and at 11am on Sundays. Sorry I do not know how early it begins. Breakfast was wholesome with a good choice. When I went in at 9.10am there was lots of room and it was not too long a wait for the toaster, coffee machine, etc.
