The menu has a great selection of foods influenced by American and British cuisine. We decided on buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup, a side of Beets and Sweets (beetroot, sweet potato and kale), breakfast potatoes (fried potatoes served with a garlic dressing) and French toast.
My friend even heard the table next to us commenting on the vast amounts of food we had ordered. We didn't care though, we had all the carbs at our table and we were happy.
Usually a catch up lunch is more about the actual catching up than it is about the food, but this was just the perfect balance of both.
Hash E8 is as laid back as you can get from a café, at least that's what it was like on Sunday. We sat for an entire three hours catching up on life and no one rushed us out of the door or bothered us in that classic way only a waiter or waitress knows how, by interrupting the flow of a conversation every 15 minutes to that check everything is ok.
If you're looking for a new brunch bar then Hash E8 is a serious contender.
