This “impressive Austrian café” in Islington’s “atmospheric Camden Passage” has established itself as a “lovely local gem” over almost 20 years. It serves “traditional Austrian classics” – from “delicious and very reasonable soup” and schnitzel to Sachertorte, Linzertorte and cheesecake, along with “excellent coffee”. Kipferl means croissant – the French pastry reputedly invented in Vienna.

A slice of Vienna in Camden Passage that’s “more than a coffee shop” (with “terrific brews and cakes”) but also “a lovely casual lunch or dinner spot” with “great” Austrian specialities including “perfect schnitzel”. A Ladbroke Grove offshoot closed down in early 2019.

“Great coffee and breakfast” are the crowd-pleasers at this Viennese café in Islington – “but it’s more than a coffee house, it’s a good restaurant too”, say fans. “Try the dumplings and schnitzel”. A second branch in Ladbroke Grove (at 95 Golborne Rd, tel 020 8969 5852) is more like a ‘Heurigen’ – an Austrian wine bar.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
