The Russet is an East London café that serves delicious food to the creative community in the heart of Hackney Downs. In an old print works, the name is inspired by the Tree Musketeers who planted an apple orchard just inside Hackney Downs park. The menu includes hearty food, cakes, artisan gelato, and modern tapas by night. On the drinks menu you’ll find our teas alongside interesting wines, local beers and delicious cocktails.
They also provide a varied programme of events suited to families and education by day, and music, cinema, theatre, cabaret, film discussions, workshops and more by night.
The Russet is part of the Hackney Downs Studios family which is a centre for creativity and collaboration in East London.
