If you're after somewhere to stop for something sweet with a cuppa or a cooling beverage in north London, then consider heading to Holloway Road. There you'll find the light and airy milkshake and juice bar Miki's Paradise, with its cushioned benches and shabby chic decor. The more standard menu options include fruit smoothies, juices, teas and coffees, but the best reason for visiting is Miki's 'freakshakes'. These are jars of milkshake topped with all kinds of treats, including ice cream, pretzels, whole brownie squares, Oreos and ice cream cones. Sweet and savoury crepes are also on offer, as well as croissants and the brownie and shortbread toppers, which you can buy individually.
