Set within a renovated warehouse and art gallery in the heart of Hackney Wick, The Counter Cafe was established by Tom Seaton and his sister Jess in January 2009 and moved to its current location, within the Stour Space art gallery in May 2011. With views over the Olympic Park and main Olympic Stadium, The Counter is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner offering food made from scratch in the open kitchen with gourmet pies, big breakfasts and Square Mile coffee. The team are also responsible for the nearby Crate Brewery, an artisan brewery and pizzeria within The White Building.
