“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.
“Tagines to die for in very generous portions” are the surprise in store at this Shepherd’s Bush caff when it “turns into a North African restaurant by night”. “It’s the most friendly, hospitable, inexpensive place”.
“A stunning little traditional Shepherd’s Bush caff that turns North African at night”; “friendly management” create “a really local feel” and its “great tagines” make it a firm cheap ’n’ cheerful favourite. Licensed nowadays, but you can still BYO (wine only), at £4 corkage.
“Greasy spoon by day, North African grills and tagines by night” – the enduring recipe for success at this “real” Shepherd’s Bush local, where the personable owners always ensure a “happy atmosphere”; licensed nowadays, but you can still BYO.
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.
