All The Shapes
All The Shapes has that relaxed café-bar, all-day-eatery thing nailed. It’s the sort of place where you feel equally comfortable rocking up with toddlers in tow or drinking your way through the craft beer range until closing time.
Throughout the day, you’ll find wholesome brunches like toasted banana bread with chocolate spread or home-made granola as well as cracking coffee and some excellent cakes. There is also a very good kids brunch menu with everything from Greek yoghurt with jam to smashed avocado on toast for your junior hipster.
After brunch finishes (at 4pm, you lazy folks), there’s a menu swip-swap and it all becomes a Mexperience. Very appetising it is too.
Expect things like tacos with cerveza-braised chicken and red Mex slaw, chipotle shrimp tortillas and slow-cooked lamb shoulder with salsa verde and roasted paprika potatoes. There are also a couple of vegan options like roasted squash with refried beans and avocado. Order a few different dishes and just get stuck in.
All The Shapes is exactly the sort of place you’d hang out in all the time if you lived anywhere near M25. As well as a friendly atmosphere, good drinks and tasty food, there are also exhibitions by up-and-coming artists, DJs, quiz nights, talks, screenings and the like. All The Shapes, but definitely not square.
