If you find yourself in London you have to make the trip to visit the Luminary Bakery in Stoke Newington. This place is everything a cafe should be – gorgeous interior (designed by Nina+Co), fantastic coffee and food, and of course a social enterprise.

You may have already tried some of their amazing food, as Luminary Bakery started off as a highly successful bakery, with their food being stocked in various locations around London. They opened up their own beautiful cafe in East London in 2017. They offer courses, work experience and employment so that women at a social and economic disadvantage can realise their dreams and break out of the cycle of abuse, prostitution, criminal activity and poverty.

Go to this cafe, you won’t regret it.
