Somedays we wake up ready to eat for the whole of the world, whilst others we may be too full from the night before or satisfied in other ways meaning we don't crave anything at all. Either way, our favourite way to start the day and to regulate a natural appetite is to do so with a drink. Not just any drink, but fresh, natural, healthy concoctions like potent shots, superfood brews, juices and smoothies. Things that can fill you up - with flavour as well as nutrients - without making you feel too full to function. That's just one of the reasons we love Hoi Polloi, the brasserie and bar of Shoreditch's The Ace Hotel. Alongside delicious brunches, lunches and dinners they also serve a selection of raw, organic elixirs throughout the day. Whether you need a kick in the morning, a pick me up in the afternoon or a digestive aid after dinner, they got it all.
