East Canonbury

Residential pocket just a short distance from Upper Street

"Canonbury and Islington are renowned for their beautiful Regency architecture that attracts so many of the local residents."

Daniel Burrell

"Alongside all the restaurants and bars that make Upper Street so popular are the architectural gems that add character to the area."

Nick Batten

"The arrival of the London Overground in Haggerston has really opened up this area for commuters."

Where do East Canonbury locals go?

The De Beauvoir Deli Co.

This is a fab little deli with homemade cakes, tonnes of local produce and some really great cheese! There's always people sat outside enjoying a sandwich and a coffee...

Newington Green Fruit and Vegetables

There isn't a vegetable or a piece of fruit that you cannot buy here. Amazing presentation and CHEAP!

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

Belle époque

Delicious bread and cakes that look too perfect to eat!

Salvation in Noodles

Super tasty Vietnamese noodle salads and pho on the borders of Dalston.

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

Tangerina

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!

Bread and Butter

Serving the best breakfasts in Dalston, lovely fresh organic food, amazing juice and great coffee. The tortilla with loads of cheese is a great hangover cure!

Godfrey's

This butchers sells award-winning meat. Simples.

Towpath

I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

The Highbury Barn

One of the most succulent chicken roasts you'll ever taste in a pub, with all of their meats supplied from the organic butcher just across the road.

Ottolenghi

Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

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.
