Agree that this is a lovely setting and that the tea and cakes were reasonably priced and good. The staff were welcoming as we came in to order. However the state of the terraced area at the front of the cafe was awful, cups and napkins etc all over the floor and tables which was encouraging pigeons to gather around and on the tables. We tried to move inside but were told that the cafe was closing in 10 minutes and that we therefore could not sit inside as it had been cleaned (we could see someone sitting in this section) The very pleasant girl behind the counter did come out and clean a table with antibacterial spray for us but as the mess was still all around the pigeons continued to make a nuisance of themselves and generally distracted from the lovely location of this cafe.


This café had a fair bit of criticism when it opened in early 2012 (which, on the most part, was justified), however, it's come a long way since then. As a regular customer, the team has improved significantly! The staff are now a very friendly bunch, and always go out of their way to help. The café can sometimes get a little hectic on sunny days, but the team never lose their smiles. The food continues to be great, with the menu taking a slightly more traditional, less 'poncey' twist on things since the original menu two years ago (the menu now has a cheeseburger and potato wedges, and sausage and mash, to name but a couple). The coffee is the best I've tasted in N16! The cakes are also to die for! I know that this place came under fire two years ago for some of their prices, but a number of cheaper options have since been introduced (teas start at £1.30, cakes from £1.30, and hot food from £4.50). This café has come along leaps and bounds from the old café before the restoration (which was a nasty, grim, below par greasy spoon), and with its beautiful surroundings in Clissold Park, this place is a must visit for anyone in or around the N16 area wanting to grab something to eat or drink!
