Recently in Time Out as one of the best coffee shops of 2015, this family friendly, independent venue also sells South American street food and tasty breakfasts.


Fabulous steak and a vibrant atmosphere - just as good as the sister restaurant in Clerkenwell.

The Haberdashery

A beautiful, vintage-style café serving yummy cakes and proper coffee. Great for brunch.

Abney Park

Both an arboretum and a cemetery, Abney Park is one of London's 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries built by the Victorians in the 19th century with beautiful grounds.

Sutton and Sons

Best fish and chips in Stoke Newington!

An amazing park to take your dog for a walk, with an animal enclosure and a butterfly dome!

Sodo Pizza Café

Fresh and high-quality food, really friendly staff, great atmosphere and good prices. The sourdough pizza are delicious and they source local beers and seasonal produce.


Great breakfasts and lunches and the only café in the area to open early. And they have food from Brazil too! OMG, I am so excited that this is my new local!

Belle époque

Delicious bread and cakes that look too perfect to eat!

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.


Forget The Hawksmoor. This Argentinian steak restaurant serves amazing meat and has a very cosy ambience.

Franks Canteen

Delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch with a changeable menu.

Highbury Arts Club

Amazing place, so small that you may miss it if it isn't recommended! A family run business close to Highbury Barn, perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. They have now started doing jazz nights on a Thursday too.

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!

Yasar Halim

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