Londoners can now eat a rainbow on Brick Lane thanks to the rainbow coloured beigels on sale at Brick Lane's Beigel Shop (that's the yellow signed one). It is Britain's oldest and very first open 24hrs 365 days a year beigel shop. The Beigel Shop can be found at 155 Brick Lane, E1 6SB.

A taste of old Europe in London

As a tour guide I am often asked where to eat in London. Having worked and lived in central London for many years I have been fortunate to have sampled many a menu. The Delaunay is a treat.
