There’s a charming little café a few minutes away from where I live, called The Cornerstone café. Located in London’s historical Royal Arsenal (SE18) it offers a really unique and pleasant setting right in between the residential part of the Arsenal and Woolwich Town Center. Everything here is made from scratch.
