Where do Harringay locals go?

Beans and Barley

A recently opened coffee shop on Green Lanes. They do an amazing granola fruit yoghurt in a jar!

Bun and Bar

I love the amazing cocktails at this burger joint!

Harringay Local Store

A farmers' market in a shop that even sells vinyl!


One of the best Turkish Restaurants in North London. Always busy, especially on weekends when you have to reserve seats to avoid standing outside. Amazing customer service, great food and a reasonable price for the standard. You should try the lamb and chicken grill.


North London's best curry house and probably north London's best kept secret. It's a small restaurant and takeaway on Turnpike Lane that prepares freshly made curries!

Yasar Halim

The best place for cheap fruit and veg on Green Lanes.

The Banc

Amazing home-cooked burgers, steaks and more in a former Barclays bank building. Owned by two friends who have also bought the coffee shop across the road!

The Queens

This pub has been standing in Crouch End since 1899, so it's a real local institution. The kitchen serves great gastropub food and a delicious Sunday roast that's always guaranteed to leave you full!


French and Italian cuisines done well. This restaurant's rustic interior creates the perfect atmosphere for a date night or a catch up with friends. The set menu is great value for money too.


I really like going to this independent café at the weekend. They serve a great breakfast menu, including a breakfast burrito that is amazing!

Hot Pepper Jelly

This delightful café is great for coffee or lunch in the afternoon. It caters for vegetarians and vegans and serves gluten-free options too.

My Kind of Coffee

As well as serving freshly brewed coffee, this shop roasts and sells lots of different beans from around the world.

Balkan Bites

Balkan and Middle Eastern street foods combined, I love popping in for a quick and cheap lunch. They make traditional pastry bourekas that are so delicious and morish, I can't get enough!

The Haberdashery

Beautiful, vintage-style café. Great for brunch.

Crouch End Broadway

With so much to do and see in Crouch End, there's no wonder why it's such a popular place to live....

  1. About Harringay

    Harringay is a residential area of North London, part of the London Borough of Haringey. It is centred on the section of Green Lanes running between the northern boundary of Finsbury Park up to the southern boundary of Duckett's Common, not far from Turnpike Lane. Whilst the main road feels definitely cosmopolitan, the population of the surrounding streets is somewhat more homogeneous. The streets to the west of Green Lanes are known as 'Harringay Park' or the 'Harringay Ladder' (due to their similarity to a ladder when seen on a map). The streets to the east behind Grand Parade are known as 'Harringay Gardens'.
