It is a period of taste uncertainty. The Westfield Empire has created a phalanx of food chain mediocrity across the Northern reaches of Stratford, assisted by the droid army of the Council of Newham. To the South of the Westfield Empire lies only culinary devastation and a gustatory wilderness.

But now, a new rebel base has been established in the traditional centre of Stratford. Hidden in plain sight, Nineteen brings a new hope to all in South Stratford who seek a meal with taste appeal.

Seriously, folks, Nineteen offers a new level of dining experience South of Meridian Square. We were there for afternoon dessert, but even here Nineteen stood out. The coffee tastes of coffee. It refreshed and invigorates, it does not mug your mouth with the taste of yesterday's dreams or yesterday's socks. As a drinker of unmilked, unsweetened straight black Americano, I am used to all kinds of indignities being served up in a cup. This makes afternoon coffee & cake a memorable experience. And then there's the cake … Aaah, the cake … We'll be back tomorrow to try the breakfast, and to start on those delicious-smelling hot meals.

The owners of 19 will be familiar to followers of Sawmill. They took that eatery from nothing to a doubling of size in under three years. Their absence from Sawmill has been noticed, but Sawmill's loss is Nineteen's gain.

I'm so glad that XIX Nineteen has opened in Stratford (right next to Stratford High Street DLR station) as there needed to be a nice cafe in the area besides popping to Westfield.

It's a friendly and spacious area that is the perfect place for a coffee break or brunch. There's a lot of choices to choose from and it's cheap too!

At £5.80, I had the Eggs Florentine which was super tasty and nicely presented. I'll definitely be back again for brunch soon!
