This nice little place opened in November 2011 and it’s a big hit with young locals. It’s easy to see why they come. From the copper lamp fittings to the quirky decor to the massive windows giving a full view of the street scene, this is very pleasant place to while away an hour or two. There’s just one coffee on offer, Union Coffee Roasters’ Revelation blend, and it’s well handled with just one complaint: the cup wasn’t hot enough, so inevitably the brew wasn’t, either. The food ranges from cooked breakfasts to sandwiches, baked spuds and a daily soup and salad. Plus the inevitable baked goods, most of them made on the premises.

I used to pop in there with my flatmate for breakfast; lovely pancakes and coffee too! oh..and the staff is really kind and professional!

Simply the best coffee in London. I genuinely don't know how they do it. All the food is lovely too, and having hands on owners I'm sure helps with keeping cool and friendly staff. The only issue is its so damn popular!

This café was the first place serving barista style coffee in Archway and continues to be a draw for its yummy breakfasts and good brews.

The best latte and almond croissants in London! The handprinted little owls on the takeaway cups are super cute too!

My favourite place to breakfast in London! A bright, relaxed, cheery cafe with a range of breakfast, brunch and lunch options. The Bread and Bean Benedict - avacado, bacon and poached egg with hollandaise sauce on an English muffin is cracking! And the tea comes served in great big pots. Can't go every day as on the slightly expensive side (£7-£10 for breakfast options) otherwise I would!
