Venue says Come and try our homemade traditional Turkish meze and barbecue dinner menu available after 5.30pm all week!

You might hear a ditty or two at this Haggerston café-cum-bistro - it's attached to the Premises rehearsal and recording studio, on Hackney Road. You might even see a famous face, though your best bets are via the signed photos of the likes of Guillemots, Terry Callier and, er, Charlotte Church. 

The kitchen here knocks out plates from breakfast 'til late, with everything from full Englishes and veggie breakfasts to Mediterranean lunches, an Ottoman lamb and chicken casserole, moussaka and shish kebabs, cooked on a charcoal grill. Tables out front prove popular come summertime.

Premises Café & Bistro says
Brilliant homemade food ranging from traditional Turkish barbecue grills to delicious world food specials for lunch and dinner. Fabulous Mediterranean dishes are also on offer, including a wide selection of meze, grills, seafood, pasta, fish and steak. Homemade English breakfast and brunch options also feature, including full Englishes, eggs benedict, omelettes and panini (including vegetarian options), available all day.

We are fully licensed, with a good selection of wines, beers and spirits and an exciting cocktail menu to choose from.

Years ago, we were originally known as music studios with a quirky little café attached. Now The Premises is a homely restaurant where you are welcome all week for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
