Open every day of the week, Red Art Cafe in London’s Dalston provides locals with some of the very finest in Turkish cuisine and breakfast classics. Just a short walk away from Dalston Junction, the cafe serves breakfast until 5pm, and offers plenty of flavourful sandwiches, meze, mains and a number of hand-selected wines and beers. Situated on Kingsland High Street near John Campbell Road, Red Art Cafe is a beacon of calm amid the surrounding hubbub.
Regardless of whether you visit for the hearty Turkish cuisine, or if you’re there for a burger that’s out of this world, the cuisine at Red Art Cafe is of the very highest quality. Using imported ingredients, as well as locally sourced products, the team at this Dalston eatery ensure that diners really get their money’s worth, an increasingly rare find in East London. Famous for their breakfast options, the cafe provides an extensive array of Turkish entrees in addition to English-style cooking.
Although there’s much to be said about the excellent breakfast selection at Red Art Cafe – think traditional English breakfasts, vegetarian options and big, filling Turkish breakfast platters – the lunch and dinner entrees are really something special. Herbivorous diners should make sure to try the cafe’s vegetable moussaka – layer upon layer of vegetables topped with cheddar and bechamel sauce then baked to perfection – for a hearty casserole that gives meat dishes a run for their money.Try the moussaka with lamb, too, if that’s more your thing. Whatever you do, make sure to reserve a table online first. This little gem on Kingsland High Street in London’s Dalston is known to pack in fast.
