Hash E8, Dalston



Hash is a cosy neighbourhood all day cafe and brunch bar just off the beaten track in Dalston. I’d heard good things and Saturday brunch seemed like the perfect time to visit.

The café itself is pretty small with only a few tables inside and outside so be prepared for a little wait – it’s worth it, I promise. With London feeling a little more Spring like, we grabbed a spot on one of the outdoor tables whilst waiting for a table inside. The street side spot was the perfect location for people watching and to catch the morning sunshine.


The name ‘Hash’ gives a big hint to the menu – welcome to hash heaven. Beetroot, sweet potato, pulled pork you name it. Whether you’re after a savoury or sweet brunch, they’ve got it.


Say hello to the breakfast muffins of all breakfast muffins. This ‘Posh Pig Muffin’ is everything you’ve dreamed of and probably more. A tower of chorizo, bacon, black pudding, beetroot hash, manchego and spinach all sandwiched between a delightfully fluffy English muffin. A melt in your mouth meat feast.



Even the ‘Half English’ was on another level of brunch. The homemade baked beans were soooo tasty and THAT hash brown. I’m already thinking about next time, when undoubtedly, it will be the FULL English that is ordered. You can’t have too much of a good thing.

Drinks wise there is everything you’d expect and a little more – fresh juices, coffee and cocktails. As you might have guessed, there’s no fuss here – atmosphere, interiors and food tick all the boxes for your perfect lazy Saturday spot for a good, honest, simple brunch.
