Summary

“Perfect for breakfast” – Juliette Banner’s “very family-friendly”, neighbourhood diner has been a treasured staple of Crouch End life since it opened in 1992 (and chef Tim Peterman has been in charge of the stoves all this time too). By contrast, its wacky mix of world food cuisine makes it “a bit of an unreliable option for dinner” though.

Summary

This all-day haven of “hearty, generous, seriously tasty scoff” is a Crouch End legend, with its epic brunch being the favoured (some would say only) time to visit. With its Caribbean flavours and “ramshackle world music vibe”, it’s “not at all refined, but that’s why we love it!”.

Summary

This hallowed all-day Crouch End stalwart majors on “big portions and big flavours”, with a strong Caribbean bias on its menu of world food. It’s particularly “great for breakfast/brunch” (perhaps less distinguished at other times), and has “a wonderful community feel”.
