New London Cafe
This lovely café is very close to Highbury and Islington station but walking the opposite way you might normally go, down St Paul’s Road towards Dalston. With a corner spot, the owners of New London Cafe have made the most of its location with seats in the sunny window as well as a small terrace at the back.
The coffee served is Fair Trade Organic which is fine and a wide selection of sandwiches, paninis and cakes is offered, along with some pastries. I tried the spinach and cheese slice which was very tasty.
A warm welcome awaits you and the small cafe manages to squeeze a few tables in without the squashed in feeling you sometimes get.
I expect there are more plans for the tiny courtyard at the back but at the moment it is a peaceful sunny spot with a few plants.
Tables are old school desks and reuse is very much a theme, including the mix of artefacts and pictures which have been gleaned form second hand shops and markets.
No website as yet, the New London Cafe does have a Facebook page to check out and add your comments.
