Summary

“Thoughtful, charming service” and “hearty, uncomplicated dishes” (“delicious tagines and other Tunisian/Moroccan specialities” like brik à l’oeuf) mean the folk of ‘Askew Village’ are lucky to have this sweet café, which “has maintained excellent quality for over 25 years”, and where “the BYO policy (£3 corkage) leads to a very modest bill” (although it is also licensed). By day, it’s a British greasy spoon.

Have you eaten at Adams Café?

Owner's description



Abdel and Frances are the husband/wife team who have been running the award-winning Adams Café since 1989 (the year their son, Adam, was born – hence the name of their restaurant).


Having met in Paris and spent several years in France and Tunisia, they saw a gap in the London restaurant scene for North African cuisine. Adams Café which magically transforms from an English-style breakfast café by day to an atmospheric Mediterranean restaurant by night has become a local institution. Their Mega Breakfasts as well as their hearty couscous dishes, aromatic tajines and giant flame-grill prawns are legendary.


‘Fantastic value for money’ combined with healthy, home-cooked dishes bursting with flavour and relaxed, friendly service from the owners are what you will find at Adams Café on Askew Road.
