They may claim fondness for a bit of ‘mammal-straddling malarkey’, but when it comes to great food and coffee, the team at Shaky Isles are deadly serious.

This second outlet of the much-loved cafe has plenty in common with its Kingsland cousin: signature cartoon graphics, offbeat interior design details and large-scale text reminders of why coffee is good for your personality.

The Britomart Shaky Isles, however, has an atmosphere all its own. Occupying the Customs Street East side of Excelsior House and extending into neighbouring Stanbeth House, it’s a large, characterful space that celebrates the layers of the building’s history.

Interesting historic details include the big wooden warehouse doors, ceiling rosettes and original rafters and exposed swathes of brick and plaster – all overlaid with lashings of Shaky Isles attitude.

A light food menu and seriously good coffee

The cafe’s food and drink menus focus on scrumptious dishes and superb coffee. Their breakfast and lunch options feature healthy bites like organic granola or avocado, heirloom tomato, goat’s cheese and tabbouleh on ciabatta plus a large selection of house-made counter food.

Their reputation for making damn fine coffee has been cemented with the introduction of syphon coffee, and the unveiling of a new filter bar serving up single origin coffee on the go.

And being just a hop and a skip from Vector Arena, it’s the perfect location for a pre-show bite. As well as free WiFi, Shaky Isles dishes out regular special offers – keep an eye on the Shaky Isles website for details.
