A fantastic addition to the area, I love this Italian deli and café because of its tasty food and personable service.

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.

Trattoria Terra

Beautiful little Italian with fantastic food and wine, a welcoming atmosphere and very reasonable prices.

Emirates Stadium

There is only one team in North London! A good day out....


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

Pandan Leaf

Simply one of the nicest Thai meals outside of Thailand.

An independent hairdressers with the loveliest staff. I always feel welcome and they do a fantastic job!


From sushi, to curries, to noodle dishes, there's plenty to choose from on this restaurant's menu. The décor is cool too, both inside and out.


From cakes for special occasions to sandwiches at lunchtime, this local bakery has been serving Crouch End for years and they're certainly my first port of call for baked treats!

The King's Head

This pub is great for their food and range of beers and ales. They even hold comedy nights and live music sessions here.

Franks Canteen

Delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch with a changeable menu.


This ice cream café sells amazing ice cream! There's always a queue right down the road - I can't get enough!

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.

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....

"The original main route through Holloway was for driving cattle to the meat market at Smithfield. The route was in such disrepair by the late 1200s, that the Bishop of London built a new toll road that is now the route of the A1."
