We stumbled upon the Frizzante cafe in Hackney City Farm after visiting Columbia Road Flower Market and it was such a great find. We had the soup, which was delicious served with tasty sourdough bread and coffee which was very flavoursome. We were quite jealous of all the other customers having the roast, which looked amazing. Already planning our next... More

Frizzante were the family choice of caterers at the Hackney City Farm location. Guests were a fairly even split between vegetarians and meat eaters and the menu was chosen accordingly. The non-veggie starter was a platter between 6 of meats, vegetables olives and bags of rustic bread. All were lovely. The puddings were delicious and were chocolate caramel brownies and... More

Just had the £12.50 roast. The beef was in large indigestible hunks especially since it was as tough as old rope. The potatoes were greasy not crisp. The Yorkshire pud was a solid lump of batter. Had to queue for ages to get this as they seem to have one person on the counter on this very busy sunny Sunday... More

If you like a noisy racket with loads of cute designer kids with yummy mummies and daddies scaping chairs and dropping cutlery - and average looking food, this is the place for you. Personally, if I'm paying those prices I want something a bit more relaxing. We live up the road and so used to eat here occasionally and I... More

This was the first restaurant that we ate in in London. After checking in at our hotel, we headed out to see what was in our area. A few blocks later, we came across a "farm in the city" area which is where we found this restaurant. When we entered, one waitress (?) was eating at a table while another... More

Offering a great selection of teas, coffees, cakes, pasta and healthy meal options. Situated within Hackney City farm. Cosy sofas, wooden tables and a resident cat. The food was delicious and there is also free wi-fi. Excellent value for money.

The food is predominantly Italian and breakfasts and is ok, but you can get much better in many other places locally, and the prices aren't particularly competitive either. Service is without a smile, and the atmosphere at lunch is dominated by screaming kids. My two year old daughter was with us, but even she had to say that she couldn't... More

Liked the place a lot as well formats style as atmosphere. Great coffees and omelettes in a city farm park in hackney. Surely go visit! After a peak at chickens, cats and more sit down in the gardens of Frizzante for a glass of wine in the evening.

Been there to have some coffee and cake. The cake was ok, espresso was good, location really nice. The service was though quite bad and didn't really make you feel welcome. Hot food looks really tasty. Maybe that what I should try next time.
