Although my prone to fast growing bottom might disagree, without a doubt, the best part of writing an article on food is the process of forming informed opinion. We all know what that means… I’m all about new experiences and trying new things. And by trying I mean tasting and by things I mean food! Add a spoonful of sugar (whoop whoop Mary Poppins) to the equation and you’ll have the key to my heart.

Speaking of my favourite things in the world, the newest addition to this very exclusive list, and incidentally to the Sclater Street Stalls’ amazing team, is the Shoreditch based patisserie ‘Sucrette’.


The mind, heart, soul and talent behind ‘Sucrette’ is the French-Caribbean goddess of baking (sorry Nigella) – Anaïs Mirval. Anaïs bakes everything from small bites like macarons to tarts and cakes but her specialities are canelés and financiers. For those of you who like me might need to google those two, Anaïs explains that ‘canelés, from the Bordeaux region, are tender custard pastries with a caramelized crust while financiers are bars of crunchiness brought by nuts and moistness brought by browned butter.’ Yummy!!!

You like the sound of it? Wait till you actually taste Sucrette’s specialities. Saturday 19th July at Sclater Street Stalls. You’ll fall in love! Whether you are fussy about your desserts or much like me you just want to stuff your face with delicious pastry, Sucrette definitely will not disappoint.

All cakes are made with seasonal fruit and always fresh ingredients. Anaïs’s innovative concept brings together street food and gourmet patisserie. The result is a fresh, creamy and fruity fusion of textures that will blow you away.

Yvonne Wayling


Fancy decorated glass bottles might not be news, but Yvonne Wayling puts her own artistic twist on it. Yvonne is the newest addition to our exciting and extremely talented team of artists at Sclater Street Stalls. Her unique technique of spray painting can turn every regular (boring) glass bottle into a work of art. It doesn’t really matter if you’re a regular boozer (such as myself according to my friends), an occasional drinker (such as myself according to my online dating account) or a non-drinker (such as myself according to what I tell my parents), I guarantee you’ll fall in love with Yvonne’s stunning spray painted bottles.


Yvonne’s innovative art can be seen on many different mediums. Using spray paint and stencils she creates unique works, each piece individually painted on mediums as decadent as champagne bottles, tables, skateboards and guitars as well as traditional canvas. Her larger canvas work images are layered to give further and unexpected depth to portraiture and scenes of angels. Ultimately, the works that Yvonne produces strive to be beautiful, unique and exquisite.
Yvonne has exhibited with David Bray, Ben Oakley, Ray Richardson, Rowan Newton, Rugman, Asboluv, Pam Glew, Carne Griffiths, Lost Souls. Yvonne’s work is regularly on show at the Ben Oakley Gallery and also shown in locations such as the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, West Bank Gallery, the Urban Barrier and numerous London pop-ups. Her work is currently on display in Far Rockaway on Curtain Road in London’s Shoreditch.


So, regardless of what your favourite drink is, Champagne, Vodka, Whisky, Gin, Wine… ribena or water, why not have it in your very own, one of a kind bottle. Whether you keep it empty on the shelf, or store your favourite ‘elixir’ in it, Yvonne’s beautifully painted bottles are a unique way of bringing exquisite art into your home… and liquor cabinet.

And if you want something extraordinary for your wall, you can choose from Yvonne’s impressive collection of breathtaking canvases.


Yvonne is only one of the many artists who will be gracing our market on Slater Street with their talent and creativity. So make sure you swing by on 19th July. Meanwhile, don’t forget to follow Yvonne on Twitter and like her on Facebook.

Vintage Bean Cafe


In my long experience as a coffee and cake (especially cake) enthusiast, Vintage Bean Cafe is by far one of the cutest little places I’ve had the pleasure to encounter. Actually, I take ‘little’ back. Because when people have invented the ‘more to it than meets the eye’ expression, surely they must’ve had Vintage Bean Cafe in mind.
With a beautiful back garden and surprisingly spacious yet very cosy basement floor, the artsy Brick Lane coffee shop has quickly became my favourite place to hang out in East London. Whether I’m after a nice cup of coffee or tea, a fresh sandwich or a slice (or two) of delicious homemade cake, this is, without a doubt, the place to go.
And talking about these cakes… the carrot cake is a must. When Lenka (Vintage Bean Cafe’s proud owner) told me, rather boldly, that her carrot cake is the best carrot cake I’ll ever taste, I have to say, I was more than sceptical. Now, I’m not the one to exaggerate… and neither was Lenka.
The good news is, Vintage Bean Cafe is open 7 days a week,
Monday to Friday 8 am – 7 pm
Saturday and Sunday 10 am – 7 pm,
so why don’t you swing by, 8 Cheshire Street, E2 6EH, just off Brick Lane, and have a look for yourself.
The even better news is, Vintage Bean Cafe will be holding a stall at our amazing upcoming market on Sclater Street, where our visitors can have a piece of the pure perfection that Lenka’s homemade cakes are whilst enjoying all the other treats we’ve sorted especially for you!
