Long White Cloud is a café and gallery space located on Hackney Road bordering Shoreditch and Hoxton, near to Columbia Road Flower Market and on the way to Broadway Market.
Long White Cloud has a delicious free-range, fair trade and locally sourced menu. Come by during the week for brunches and coffees or on the weekend for a tasty hangover cure brekkie or brunch or now in the evenings for our themed weekday nights!
LWC was once one of the many handbag shops monopolizing Hackney Road! Originally it was a long very thin walkway with massive shelves, slowly and gradually we have shaped it into the café and gallery space it is. We opened our doors on June 16th with an opening party and private view for the first LWC exhibition. The very next day, somewhat hungover (and a little late) Nikki opened at 9am and started serving coffee! We haven’t looked back since then!
Zuzie Poskitt prior to LWC was a project manager. She led teams for charities and builders in re-furbing properties. Zuz loves redeveloping and is always hatching a plan to make LWC a little better. She has guided the LWC from a handbag shop into a busting café and gallery. Her favourite colour is pink and she often dashes off to Suffolk to jump on a horse!
