I was invited by Greg, the owner of ‘the Grand Howl’ Roastery in Hackney, to take interior photos of his shop for London Coffee Guide.
It’s located on the corner of Well St and Pool Rd, right where the good, old Greggs used to be… I couldn’t resist and did ask Greg weather he was tempted to keep the old name in the name…. I like the new name much better Greg!
I spotted him as I arrived on my bicycle and just managed to get the camera out of the bag to capture the boss, doing boss stuff – simple tasks, like taking out the trash :0 Nice one!
The shop is spacious and inviting. Big windows let a lot of good light in. You can also find a darker corner, at the back of the room, in case of a Thursday morning hangover, headache… or else
First thing you will notice as you open the steamy door (if Greg doesn’t rearrange yet again), is a piece of wall art. Quite grand, three headed wolf, called the Werepicker, by A.J. Fosik.
It’s clear to see, Greg is a keen collector. Place is tastefully decorated with interesting art from all over the globe.
Apart from excellent coffee, a fantastic range of vegan food is on offer. Breakfast, lunch, brunch, whatever you try here (unless it’s the already world famous Tofu Burrito, in which case you stand no chance), make sure that at the end you have space for a little treat: raw chocolate avocado brownie – they are to die for!
Delicious photoshoot at the Grand Howl was like a piece of vegan, raw and abnormally healthy….cake! after all 🙂
I’ll be back soon for some in-depth food photoshoot and more.
