One of the best parts of EC One is our location. We absolutely love being situated on Exmouth Market. The street is full of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. When you pop along to the shop, make a day of it and enjoy the laid back cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Established in 1998, the Mum and Daughter team somehow fell into retail and found that there’s a whole lot of fun to be had when you’re selling good stuff to good people. The shop is bright, colourful and packed with great gifts - either for others or yourself! The team have a passion for pattern and colour.
Marby and Elm
Marby & Elm is a letterpress stationery and design shop. What began as a hobby in a garden shed has become a family business. Eleanor is the designer, Charlie, her sister, manages the shop, their father is the lettering artist whilst Tim their brother does the photography & website. All the products are designed in the shop and most are made and packed right here in Clerkenwell.
In the thick of the 2021 coronavirus lockdown, designer and shopowner Eleanor Tattersfield put out a call on Instagram: 'I'll send you a postcard, you send me a secret'. Lockdown Secrets is an astonishing record of what happened next.
Postcards poured in, some beautifully decorated, some simply handwritten, but each one anonymously sharing a very personal confession.
We've all been through the lockdown experience, and every reader will find something to relate to in this fascinating collection, a perfect snapshot of an extraordinary time.

Restaurants and cafes
The renowned Moro is just opposite EC One and is known for attracting the odd famous face or two…
Moro’s cuisine takes its inspiration from a cooking tradition rooted in the 700-year Moorish occupation of Spain (C8th-C15th). The era brought together two great culinary traditions creating a food culture rich in heady aromatics and exotic spices. The dishes at Moro are always made authentically, true to their specific origins, be they Spanish or Moroccan, Iranian or Turkish.
Morito is a tapas & mezze bar next door to sister restaurant Moro and has been described by Times critic Giles Coren as “simultaneously supercool and modest, and as much like a brilliant little backstreet place in Spain as you’ll find in this country”
Berber & Q
Berber & Q was born in an old taxi repair shop in 2015, housed in a beautiful converted railway arch in Haggerston.
Berber & Q Shawarma Bar opened on Exmouth Market in July 2016.
Their menus take inspiration from pretty much anywhere they can find it, but with a bias towards the ingredients and flavours of the Middle East, North Africa and across the Ottoman. Favouring vegetables as much as meat and fish, the haunt likes their wines natural and cocktails delicious.
Berber & Q cook over live fire because it makes food taste better. They love simple, honest cooking with loud colours and big, bold flavours. This also comes across in the laid-back hospitality and unique atmospheric settings, both of which will welcome you at the door.
Enjoy unique sour dough Pizza with fresh toppings and less gluten. In the summer, you can enjoy outdorr seating in the park, that the restarant backs out onto.
Located at the end of Exmouth Market, Caravan is a bright and airy space with glazed frontage on two sides and an outside terrace on the market. Serving up a well-travelled breakfast and all day food and drinks menus, along with freshly roasted coffee from the caravan roastery, Caravan’s style is open, relaxed and friendly. Head over for a coffee with the morning paper, a cocktail and small plates in the evening and anything in between!
The microbrewery founded in 2006 in Copenhagen, Denmark and opened on Exmouth Market in 2019. The brewpub has a hip and industrial vibe and serves 20 different craft beers on tap & bottled brews.
