Dogs Allowed: Counter Cafe at Stour Space
Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, so to make the most of it before the rain returned (which it has today) we headed off for one of our favourite local walks – it’s not right on our doorstep – but a 5 minute car journey. We park in the free council car park (yes you did read that right) next to my favourite garden centre Growing Concerns next to the St Marks Gate entrance to Victoria Park. We then wander along the canal past the Olympic Statium and normally would join the Greenway Walk and head to the View Tube with its great views of the Olympic Park for a lovely coffee and croisant at the fab Container Cafe. However the access from the canal was fenced off for building work (this is right where the althletes will cross from their training track to the main arena)
So we back tracked and crossed over the lock to Fish Island to check out the Counter Cafe (the same folk that run the Container Cafe) at Stour Space. They’ve opened up a lovely outside area over looking the canal with views of the Olympic Stadium, and, music to our ears, they allow well behaved dogs, hurrah! We arrived about 11am and soon after it really started filling up for the amazing looking breakfasts, so we advise getting there early for a prime spot. We had our usual delicious coffee and croissant but vowed to go back soon with Edwyn to sample the more hearty offerings.
We’re always so chuffed to find a new dog friendly venue!
