Where do Kentish Town locals go?


Serving organic food and drink ideal for a quick brunch. Wholesome meals, delicious salads and a variety of smoothies that are nice too.

Shaka Zulu

A little taste of Africa. Great ambience, incredible South African Zulu statues and if that doesn't win you over, the all day 2-4-1 cocktails will!

Anima e Cuore

From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!

Camden Market

Wandering through one of the many stalls in Camden Market, there's always something to catch the eye!

Dirty Burger

Really good burgers, brilliant milkshakes and onion rings from a hidden shack at the back of Pizza East.
