Where do N12 locals go?

Pera

Genuine Turkish food cooked on a charcoal grill. The food is delicious every time, the staff are always accommodating and the portion sizes are more than generous. The mixed meze comes highly recommended. Pera is a favourite in the area.

Peace and Plenty

A bakery selling homemade sweet treats, breads and made-to-order cakes for special occasions.

Café Buzz

A great breakfast and lunch menu, coffees, slushes and ice cream!

Veronica Lancaster Interiors

Paints, wallpaper and fabrics, this interior design store in Woodside Park is the place to go if you're redesigning your home.

The Bohemia

Re-opened last June and beautifully refurbished. It's a brewpub and a restaurant and they also have events happening there every week. It's always packed and has become a bit of a local destination.

An amazing varied menu, an all you can eat buffet and takeaway options. Cool décor and nice staff, this place is highly recommended!

Størksen

Amazing for a bit of pampering - really friendly staff and you don't feel rushed. You can really relax here and they have nice bits and pieces for sale too.

Emporium Tea Room

A quaint tea room on the High Road - a great spot to celebrate birthdays and small get-togethers, with afternoon tea and cakes. Lovely vintage theme!

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.

Istanbul

A large Turkish restaurant, accommodating small intimate gathering and large parties. A very tempting menu, from meze, to shish kebab, to fish and many many more options.

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.

Vero Caffé

I always grab a quick cup of coffee from this friendly cafe in Woodside Park before taking a stroll along Dollis Brook.

Tommy Flynn's

A sports bar with real ales and a nice atmosphere.
