Ace Cafe on London's North Circular Road has been serving bikers since 1938.  Hattie Garlick visited recently and learnt how, after being destroyed in an air-raid in 1940,  it became the world famous haunt it is today getting through an astonishing 7 tons of sausages a year. But how does a vegan survive in this world of leathers and bacon sandwiches? Hattie tracked down Vegan Biker Boy for some answers.

Brick Lane in London's East End has been the home to an ever-changing community over the last five or six decades.

Elliot Lang interviews his grandfather, a local resident who remembers the days when Brick Lane reflected its predominantly Jewish population. One product has remained constant throughout - the  bagel,  which has always been a feature of this vibrant market street.

Started in 1871, Maison Bertaux still survives in its original premises. Such is the devotion to this wonderful pastisserie that one ex-Soho resident has been going there for over 60 years - even though he moved out of London 25 years ago.

Peter Boizot, MBE, is a Soho legend. In 1965 he introduced the pizza to Londoners when he imported an Italian oven into the first ever Pizza Express in Wardour Street. The popularity of the jazz club below his Dean Street pizzeria lead to the founding of the Soho Jazz Festival. He fought the very successful Save Piccadilly campaign, was a founder member of the Soho Society and the Soho Restaurateurs Association and supported in no small measure Soho Housing Association. We interviewed him about those pioneering days at his home in Peterborough.
