Just my favoutite place in London. Among the thousands of hipster cafés and shops, this place is authentic and sells incredible stuff, from organic staples, an amazing variety of spices to snake oil (whatever that may be?). I spend too many Sundays drinking their Lebanese coffee and eating baklava...

Everything one could want for a Mediterranean feast, more than approachable pricing, and wide range. Local worthies

Again a place which isn't trying too hard, and has literally anything you can think of from all over the world. The butcher is great, they roast their own nuts, marinate their own olives and make their own middle eastern pastries.

Old school and all the better for it - unrivalled selection of international food and ingredients. Plus they support Palestinian farmers.
