The Last Crumb work space ‘Crumb@Work' opened in the New Year in the former Foxlow building and it’s already a favourite with local freelancers, while the café upstairs, is getting rave reviews.
Helen Collier, who runs the business with her friends Paula Chapman and Jacyntha Gordon, described the activity making their new venture so special: “The Last Crumb is about gatherings: of friends; of family; of writers (blocked or unblocked!); freelancers tapping on their laptops; creatives scribbling in books; babies feeding; toddlers drawing; dogs curled up under the table hoping for a juicy treat.
Paula added: “We’ve given a great deal of thought to creating our dream working space. It’s comfortable and spacious with all the facilities and technology workers need for things to go smoothly and some extras like free tea, filter coffee and pastries thrown in. The Crumb@Work is already buzzing and we look forward to showing more locals around.”
Set over two floors, this is one of Church Street’s largest and most prominent restaurants. The café upstairs boasts amazing coffee from The Roasting Shed in Hackney Wick and the menu includes pistachio ham hock served with a crispy egg and chips, potted smoked mackerel with pickles and toasted sourdough, a full English breakfast with scotch egg and vegan and gluten free options too.
The state of the art work space downstairs has super-fast Wi-Fi, a meeting room with conference facilities, sofa area and plenty of plugs and USB points. Included in the price is a good supply of tea and filter coffee as well as homemade pastries. And they’re offering Crumb@Work members a free monthly surgery with advice on topics ranging from accountancy to fitness and nutrition.
Those wishing to work there can sign up to a monthly tariff or choose to pay ad-hoc for a full-day or half-day. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
