The-Vintage-Emporium-Cafe Brick Lane might be crammed with retro stores, but this place really stands out. Run by two fashion historians, The Vintage Emporium Cafe is the place for rare period clothing from the Victorian era up to the 1950s. The ground floor doubles up as a Victorian parlour, where you can contemplate the state of your bank balance over a decent cuppa.
