Top Top Coffeeshop in N8 - Amazing Coffee/Staff/Shop. Highly recommended!!!!!

Undoubtably the best coffee in North London, and an entirely gluten free (and more and more vegan-friendly) cake range, freshly baked by a coeliac chef - it's a coeliac's dream!

Great, local, independent cafe. With all the mainstream coffee places in Crouch End this one delivers amazing coffee (if they're not happy they'll redo it!), lovely atmosphere, good, tasty food plus you can see different art installations from the local area and sometimes even a jazz afternoon.

Really recommend visiting this little gem.


Great coffee, lovely little place to sit in for coffee and cake. Though I do find the staff a little rude but I hope i've just had them on an off day.

One of the best coffee places in town. Great atmosphere and amazing service. I'm a regular.

Great coffee, friendly service, and a great quirky little place to sit and enjoy relaxing for a while. Good music, too.

Love this place and they sell my favourite coffee beans 'Mission Works Coffee Bells Espresso' yum.

Amazing coffee, hot choc & smoothies ; gluten free cakes unparalleled - and service second to none! Love love love

The coffee is delicious and the cakes are great too but the staff isn't the friendliest... They also have quite a unique taste for the music they play which can be a bit off putting.

Amazing flat whites, lovely coffee, they always have almond milk, and wallpaper made from assortment of staff paper is class!

Eclectic, funky - and the best home made gluten free cakes anywhere. And unparalleled Chilli Hot Choccy (and you get a comp biscuit) Love it.

Great local café that does one of the best coffees in Crouch End (take that Harris and Hoole, with your corporate-constructed fake homeliness). The mismatched furniture and low-key homely vibe attracts freelancers with laptops, parents catching up after school drop-off and old friends with important stuff to talk about. The modest selection of pastries and cakes are definitely worth sampling.

Simply one of the best prepared and served coffee in London. And I am an old grumpy italian, enough said.

Just had a great flat white from this quirky little coffee shop! Best coffee i've had for a long while! Loath to visit a high street chain for a while now...

Absolutely the best cafe in Crouch End by a mile. Coming from NZ, I know a good coffee when I taste (and see) one, and this is GOOD coffee. I try to come in most days and would stay all day if I could.

Great coffee and selection of fantastic cakes. The best thing about this place are the people who work there. Really friendly, warm and welcoming. Best coffee shop!

The nicest mocha I have had in London wihtout a doubt. The staff are friendly and coffee is consistantly very good. Yes, sometimes you need to wait for a little bit for a coffee.... but the barista takes their time to make a nice coffee. I would rather wait for a good coffee than get an ordinary one immediately.

Without a doubt the best place in Crouch End for coffee and small snacks. Had a wonderful cheese and pickle toastie today which was reasonably priced but the mind blowing Mocha made my day. Without a doubt the BEST Mocha i've EVER had and I've lived in Melbourne which I consider to be the place where I've had the best coffees in my life.

Absolutely lovely, without a doubt the best coffee in Crouch End! Service is exceptional and very personable, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone who is passing through Crouch End to call in and try one of their flat whites, and of course one of the lovely slices of cake.

I'd give it 5 stars. Great atmosphere, great coffee, lovely service. A place with a passion like the Haberdashery, also in Crouch End. Why people drink at Starbucks or Costa in the Creative Village beats me when you can have real coffee.

I walk through the door, and I see two clowns bumbling behind the counter. Experience should have taught me to turn on my heel and not look back. But I've just woken up and I need a shot of coffee, so I figure I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Boy, was I wrong. First, another customer walks in after I do, and he gets served first. Second, they get my order wrong and I have to repeat it to them. Third, they give my coffee to another customer, who very nearly takes a sip out of it. Fundamentally, these plonkers don't have the first clue about customer service. They couldn't decide who was working the till and who was making the coffees, and didn't know to priortise between customers who are sitting-in (and are therefore taking their time) and customers who want a take-out (because they have places to be). Last but not least, the coffee they made was abominable. Now, I've met the manager, and he's a nice bloke, really knows his stuff. But he needs to take better care over the staff he employs, because they're going to run his business into the ground. My goodwill has pretty much expired.
