Chimichanga

The best BBQ ribs and spicy chicken wings and a convenient position in a retail park, so there's plenty of parking!

Fierce Grace

Part of a small chain of alternative yoga centres.

M's Place

A lovely café on the High Road. Great for lunch, nice selection of sandwiches, mini pastries and pasta dishes and they have their own juice bar, where you can design your own juices/smoothies!

Boulangerie Joie De Vie

Lovely little coffee shop/restaurant. The type of place you want to work your way through everything on the menu over the course of multiple visits! Hands down the tastiest brioche this side of France.

Il Funghetto

Il Funghetto promises the best in traditional and modern Italian dishes. Highly recommended!

Ishtah

Modern Turkish cuisine prepared on a charcoal grill. Food is always delicious and the bright, modern décor makes for a lovely setting for a meal out in the heart of Finchley Central.

La Genoise Café

This quaint patisserie is a wonderful place to grab your morning coffee. Be warned, you might find it difficult to resist one of the wonderfully presented items in the dessert display.

I really like this traditional pub - the classic food menu is very reasonably priced compared to other pubs in London and the food is great!

A local organic butcher with a range of meats, from organic Halal chicken to a variety of exotic meats including crocodile, antelope, rattle snake and many many more.
