Café 1001 has stood as a regular haven for London's creative scenesters since the early 0000s and our breakfast has always been there. Often rescuing them from morning after woes with our famous Full English Breakfast! Sometimes straight after lively (semi-illegal) nights out in our dark, now departed, club space. Sadly those days are no more. Grrr Tower Hamlets licensing! None the less, the longest serving Full English Breakfast in the area is still going strong and has been greatly improved. Every ingredient is carefully sourced from top-notch producers and local markets, except avocados... they come from Peru.

If that's too much for you then we offer a great selection of refined breakfast classics, continental fare, pro-Brexit pastries (Pain aux Hard Border), cakes and cookies. We've even got toast & jam, fruit bowls and protein balls for those that are budget-conscious.

All Full English Breakfasts are served with a smile (not guaranteed) and a tea / coffee included.
We're a Café first and foremost and we offer a selection of lunch options however, we are currently updating our lunch menu for Autumn/Winter 2023. We'll upload our new menu soon!
Sleazy Pizza
We also have a salacious pizza joint on site, Sleazy Pizza, who are here to satisfy you with the sauciest 12” of your life... Chef Dani brings us his lifelong passion for Pizza as made on the streets of Naples where he grew up. These mouth watering Napoletana pies are cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven, available to order directly to your tables in 1001. The menu has plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as starters, sides, and desserts.
We have a diverse range of drinks on offer at Cafe 1001 from cocktails to craft beer and wines.

We offer a wide range of wines, bespoke cocktails and an array of beers to suit all tastes. We recently partnered with East London Liquor our house spirit in our cocktail serves...

Our bar teams work together fusing their own passion for knocking back a few spirits into seasonal cocktail menus. We've recently linked up with East London Liquor to become our house pour in all our cocktails and recommend our house Negroni as a winner.
