Dressed from head to toe in 70s decor this cute little cafe makes the perfect spot for brunch or afternoon tea. Expect to see old fashioned TVs, the classic housewife apron, mish mash wallpaper and lot of funky tea pots. Definitely an element of tackyness but I think this place if so cozy and cute that it doesn't matter. I went for brunch with my mum and had potato scones (which were gluten free) with salmon and a caper jelly. It was tasty but the scones were perhaps a bit stodgy but I can get past this. I would certainly come here again for a study session as you can curl up on an arm chair with a pot of tea and take immerse yourself into this 70s 'house'. 


Cannot express how much I love this local cafe/restaurant/tea house. Delicious food, kitsch decor, great service and dog friendly to boot! Marley is always treated with a blanket, treat and water.

Every dish I've tried here has been amazing - from their fry ups, avo toast, to their pop up fondue nights - everything has been fresh with great flavours. There are loads of dishes that cater to vegans as well.

I brought m boyfriends parents here and they could not believe how much it resembled their childhood homes. His nan even has the same plate set!

Try to book beforehand because this place is constantly rammed however I've never seen them turn anyone away.


One of my favourite cafes in North London. The ultimate granny chic experience. Gorgeous food, the coffee needs perfecting but is still enjoyable. I would highly recommend getting the scones, of all the flavours!!!


Generally there's not many reasons to visit crouch end. However, if you only head north to visit Edith's House, I'd say it's a day well spent. Right in the centre of Crouch End, this cafe/restaurant/grandma's place serves you food and drinks in the setting right out of a film set/ art installation of someone's house.

If you've ever had the impulse to sit in a period furniture exhibit in a museum, this is likely as close as it gets. Be sure to have a wander, and if you're lucky, eat on top of a toilet.

The best place to sit with a cuppa.......and a scone........and a breakfast........and a lunch......... in Crouch End!

This is a wonderful, cosy little spot with eccentric furnishes, delicious dishes and warm, welcoming staff.

Breakfast is to die for and so are the home made scones. Service is friendly and efficient and the décor is fabulous. I love the fact that dogs are allowed. When we get a dog next summer we will, no doubt, become regulars

When you visit any venue that is run by people that have such great passion for what they do, you know your on to a winner. Plus a bit of quirky decor is an added bonus!!!

Wonderful atmosphere, incredible food (bacon buttie but better is to die for) and lovely owners. Reminds me of my grandma's house.

A coffee shop is more than it's product. (almost) anyone can make a good coffee or tea. This place is special because the owners take an active role in making everything from scratch, actually being there almost all of the time and making the place welcoming and cosy. And the cakes!! Let's not forget about the cakes!!!

Amazing venue, great staff and incredible attention to detail. Not to forget the best coffee around !

Try the avocado and egg on toast with chilli oil. It's divine. I love the decor and the hosts are friendly.Did I mention their freshly baked scones ??? Try the white chocolate scones with strawberry. It's to die for.

It's completely different to anywhere else around, the food is superb and the hosts are fabulous xx

Great menu, and the scones are delicious. The staff are lovely and the decor is really quirky and cute.

Its just a lovely place. Friendly, welcoming. They remember your face & your usual orders. Plus the decor is lovely. I always see things on different visits that my grandparents had in their house & it just feels homely.

A retro comfort stop with sensational ambiance, food and beverages. The perfect feel good place, especially on a dull Autumn/Winter afternoon.

Best coffee. Best atmosphere. Friendliest staff. Incredible scones. The ONLY place that I have taken virtually everyone I know. Adore it here!

Niche wins everytime! This is a lovely quaint cafe, laid out like your grandma's house, theres a living room, dining room, bedroom and even a bathroom you can choose to have your freshly made scones with tea! There's also the notorious Roux french bulldog running around, whos probably the best thing in the world, you're not to give her cake but you'll be damn near tempted!

Super lovely owners and the dog! So here are my favourite weekly treats: Amazing warm white chocolate scones, eggs and avocado with chilli oil, cups of tea in real tea cups, a comfy sofa and shameless indulgence!


I am in love with this place. Entering through the door I am instantly transported back to being a five year old in my grandma's house: naff ornaments in a mock mahogany cabinet, check, frilly seat cover on the toilet, check, Royal memorabilia, check. While other cafes may have tried to pimp up old tat by calling it 'vintage', this place stays true to its roots and ditches any fandangled trendiness to look more like a Coronation Street set (rather aptly given the owners were actors). Warm your cockles by the fake flame electric fire or take a pew on the toilet, every room in Edith's House serves as a seating area. Now onto the food, well firstly Grandma's scones have certainly had a makeover - the 'bacon buttie but better' is a game-changer, I want to kiss the person who decided to put rarebit on a chive scone, add some bacon, grilled tomatoes, poached egg, asparagus and chilli jam. I'm salivating just thinking about it now. If you live in London, this place is a must visit Location.
