One More Cup of Coffee - Bob Dylan - Andy Roberts Music
What's the best coffee you can get in London? I like straight espresso but the coffee you get served in London varies hugely from one coffee shop to another. There's a little cafe near me in Manor Park called the Mediterranean Cafe which is run by a Moroccan and Polish couple and the espressos there range from very acceptable to very good.
From the chain cafes my favourite is probably Cafe Nero but Cost can be OK. I wouldn't go anywhere near Starbucks - YUK!

The students of UEL have a spectacular setting on the Royal Albert Dock. The campus was opened in 1999, the famous buildings designed by Edward Cullinan Architects.
The Univesity itself was officially opened in 2000 by mayor Ken Livingstone who said it was the first new university in Lonodn for 50 years. I know because I was there.

granted for St Modwens proposed 100m redevelopment of Londons Queens
St Modwen is planning to redevelop the market near Upton Park tube station
into 91,000 sq ft of market stalls and shops and 350 homes.
The retail will be divided into 23,000 sq ft of market stalls and 68,000 sq
ft of shops. It will also include a 20,000 sq ft civic front office
facility facing onto Green Street.
The scheme, which goes before the council next Wednesday, has faced
opposition from local group The Friends of Queens Market who fear that
St Modwen will hike rents once the scheme has been developed. Newham Council
owns the freehold of the land and St Modwen will take a long lease on when
the development is completed.
