Seems to be no mention of the best cafés so I thought I would volunteer one: Tangerina, www.tangerina.co.uk, on Green Lanes has some of the best coffee in N16 and a great mix of Brazilian and European influences to boot. Then there are clasics like the Blue Legume. Where is the list of the best coffee shops in Stokey?
