Paper & Cup - the wonderful little not-for-profit coffee shop and book store in Shoreditch has opened a second branch in Mile End. If you're not familiar with the original concept, it was created with local charity Spitalfields Crypt Trust who helped train former addicts who've completed an addiction recovery programme to work as baristas. And providing further support for the community, the tiny little coffee shop sources books from local charity shops and artwork by local artists who also make bespoke merchandise to sell in the shop.
The new Mile End branch will be bigger than the original with a larger menu of hot dishes, sandwiches and full English breakfast - in addition of course to baked goods and coffee.
