Where do Woodside Park locals go?


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.

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.

Café Buzz

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


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.

Vero Caffé

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


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.

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.

Bella Mia

Finchley's very own authentic classic pizzeria with great indoor and outdoor dining.

Ai Sushi

Ai Sushi does the most amazing chicken katsu curry!

Il Funghetto

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

Peace and Plenty

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

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.

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!
