Where do Holloway and surrounding areas locals go?

Girasole

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

Alcedo

This restaurant provides the best food, near and far, in the Islington/Holloway area. Amazing cocktails, a well chosen wine card and an extraordinarily friendly and expert service that guarantees a complete dining experience. Alcedo will never disappoint!

The Edward Lear

A pub on Holloway Road with plenty of cosy booths and a pretty interior. It also has Pimms and Lemonade on tap!

The Arsenal

Perfect stop for any Arsenal fan! Underneath the railway lines at Finsbury Park, it is open all of the time, not just match days.

My Cottage Café

Tiny little family run café with delicious Lebanese food - it's a real surprise!

Out of the Attic

A fab place for vintage finds and antiques, the stock is often spilling out onto the pavements.

Bumblebee Natural Foods

Bumblebee Natural Foods shops on Brecknock Road...you have to add them to your list, they are amazing. Great produce over three shops and the best bread ever!!

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

Garufa

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.

Osteria Tufo

The owner is from Naples and it's a super friendly Italian. Very pretty place, service is wonderful and it has freshly made pasta and homemade puds.

The Front Room Cafe

Super friendly local café with an amazing breakfast selection. Nice place to spend a 'work from home' day. Outdoor seating too when the weather is good.

Emirates Stadium

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

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.

Dorotta

"I love Newington Green because of the close community and village atmosphere. The proximity to Clissold and Church Street is handy, but Newington Green has most of what you need. This part of Green Lanes is really changing for the better and it's an exciting place to go now!"
