The Waiting Room

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
An informal restaurant and home interiors shop on Totteridge Lane, The Waiting Room gets its name from its location – just down from Totteridge & Whetstone station. It doesn't look like a bad place to spend some time before the train arrives.
It's run by a mother and daughter duo. They've put together an all-day food menu ranging from eggs on toast and American pancakes to a three cheese souffle omelette, club sandwiches, a spiralized superfood salad and scones served with clotted cream and jam. High tea also features, as does Purbeck ice cream - it's gluten-free and egg-free.
And to shop? There's a range of furniture and interior furnishings, from brand new to antique. They describe it a 'French country feel', which sounds about right to us.
