The recent hot weather has given Galvin Café a Vin in Spitalfields the chance to unveil their slick new cigar terrace. Suitably decked out with comfy chairs and olive trees, the terrace provides a stylish new spot to keep cool in the city and sample the fine cigars on offer, ranging from Romeo y Julieta Petit Julieta (£6 each) to Bolivar Royal Corona Tubos (£16) to Montecristos Sublimes Limited Edition 2008 (£26). For the non-smokers, the recently relaunched Café a Vin also offers a full menu including specials from a wood-fired oven, oysters and charcuterie, as well a range of natural wines from the new list, both of which can be enjoyed on the terrace throughout the day.
