The Merci Marie Cafe is open!

Merci Marie is a new cafe delivering many old favourites with a delicatessen's twist. The cafe is the brainchild of Marie Gonfond who hails from Provence, France. 

She truly undertands the importance of an exciting meal during a working day. Her distinct flavours are a welcome addition to Dalston's food circuit.

The cafe is located on the roof and is open from 12-3 Monday to Friday for the summer. 

On Friday nights the cafe is transformed in to "Sweet Friday" a pop up dining club for people who are serious about supper!

Remember the summer? Our 2014 highlight has to be the Bootcamp Live takeover of Dalston Roof Park - a careers event like no other, run by young people, for young people. Great memories - pure inspiration and positivity.

This event was the culmination of a pioneering event management course run by Bootstrap Campus in partnership with HCVS & Talent Match London and led by Lyrix Organix. 8 weeks, 3 teams, 1 event.
