Some of London’s hottest kitchens get their breads from Ben MacKinnon's tiny bakehouse in the arches beneath London Fields station, and E5’s hand-baked artisan wares are top stuff if you’re stocking up on the staff of life. You can also use the place as a café drop-in for (organic) breakfast or lunch during the week (expect anything from homemade granola to veggie black-bean chilli with roast squash and lime salsa). On Saturdays, they go down the brunch route with sausage rolls, spanakopita and suchlike, while Sunday means sourdough pizzas straight from the oven. Come here for coffee and cake too. Also check out the E5 Roasthouse in Poplar Union’s community hub.

The quality of its goods and the friendly service have me coming back to E5 Bakehouse more frequently than ever. Love it. Especially the Hackney Wild loaf ;-)
As a Maltese person who loves Maltese bread (a good Hobza)..this is the closest I can find to something that reminds me of home :)
Amazing bread, sandwiches, morning pastries and more. Really nice foodshop as well in their E5 Millhouse location.
They make bread like it used to be - delicious & nutritious. Also kind enough to let GoodGym Hackney set off from there every Tuesday. We appreciate you, thank you.
Wonderful staff & the best cakes & coffee in Hackney. They grind there own flour for tha amazing sour dough bread & make there own butter amongst other wonderful things.
Great service and coffee. Love the deli section and selection in the relatively new shop, the cheeses, piccalilli and did I mention the bread!
Famous for his sourdough, wholemeal, and multigrain loafs, E5 is probably the best bakery in London. Aside from bread, this bakery also provides a great selection of coffee and cakes - I recommend the chocolate and salt cookies - as well as running a number of community projects, workshops and public events.
The bread at E5 Bakehouse is some of the best in London. Choose between multigrain, sourdough or rye varieties in big or small sizes all baked to perfection daily. They also offer a good selection of other baked goods such as pastries, flapjacks, and brownies - all lovely.
While it's a bit tiny, breakfasts or brunches here are also a good bet. The simple, rustic and good quality dishes revolve around their divine bread and are perfect after a morning run or swim at the adjacent London Fields.
Even if you don't live in the area, making a mini pilgrimage to buy their bread is well worth the effort.
Sadly addicted to their bread - I buy at least two loaves at a time and start to get nervous as the 2nd runs out. Hackney Wild, Multi-seeded and the Country Loaf are all amazing - as are the gorgeous cakes.
