Boulangerie Bon Matin
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The streets of Finsbury Park feel a little more continental with the scent of Bon Matin’s freshly baked bread and viennoiserie. The comely window display is a little Ottolenghi-esque and, inside, rows of good-looking tarts, sandwiches, mini cheesecakes and quiches provide further invitation. As the name suggests, this café is more of a morning venue, but breakfast is a leisurely affair, served until 4pm, and for lunch there’s a selection of colourful sandwiches (ciabatta, brioche or open) and a daily soup (a pleasingly light lentil and tomato when we dropped by) served with a basket of bread.
Following in the footsteps of its successful sister restaurant in Crouch End, however, there are plans to start serving a Middle Eastern-style lunch menu here too. Bon Matin attracts a friendly bunch: couples leafing through the free newspapers, small groups eating in the sky-lit extension at the back, young families on a weekend cake mission. French toast was incredibly light and fluffy, made with Bon Matin’s own brioche, which really crisped up around the edges. Moist, buttery scrambled eggs and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice made a fine hangover cure.
