Nearest supermarket to the flat (30 secs away). Has good range of veggie food - sausages, tofu, dairy free yogurt / cheese / ice-cream/ chocolate. Also sells pulses and quinoa etc.

This is the local supermarket and it's just around the corner. We now do most of our food shopping online, but this is the reliable big shop, with long opening hours.

If the local shops on Bethnal Green don't stock what you need, you can defect to this evil corporation and help make the world a slightly worse place. Convenient though.

Local supermarket. Eating out can be expensive. When i have younger cousins visiting we make breaky at home and pack a sandwich. Recommend you do the same.

Local Tesco one block east then one block north of Kings Cross Station. Open 6am-11pm and fine for simple purchases. I use Waitrose for more major shopping.

Open 6 am to 11 pm weekdays, 5 am to 11 pm Saturdays, and noon to 6 pm Sundays. Utilitarian but convenient.

Local Tesco supermarket, open 7am-11pm, stocks pretty much everything you'll need.

Fairly well stocked store for your needs. (But excuse me Mr. Tesco, how is this 'Hammersmith' between Fulham and West ken?!)

Slightly more options than Little Waitrose, and more budget conscious.

Convenience Store of the year 2013 - this is a great place to pick up groceries. Seagull eggs anyone? Home of Eat17 bacon Jam which has made its way to Harrods! :-)

Just about the best stocked convenience store you'll ever find. Wide range of gourmet foods as well as basics. A bit pricey, but generally worth it. Also do good takeaway flatbreads.

Not your average convenience store. Artisan bread and cakes, Turkish pizza's freshly made and served in the back, wide range of specialist items for all tastes as well as the basics.

Don't let the name frighten you off. Mad selection of quality beers (and good selection of wines & fizz). They will deliver if you order enough so you don't have to lug it home.

2 local Airbnb hosts recommend

Very handy for all household and grocery needs, despite much being provided with the flat, Tesco is useful for a quick shopping visit.
