North London's Cultural Guide

Cabin Cafe



I’ll be honest, I’ve never eaten there. Walked past it a million times of course. Looks fun though, if a little confused-of-identity: Chinese on the one hand – value noodles, chow mein – and greasy spoon on the other. But it occupies the corner of a pretty crossroads, with the verdant exterior of the George IV diametrically opposite, and there are faded snaps in the window of the owner posing with the local celebrities (Edith Bowman, you know you wanted to.)

What’s not to like? Oh, and full marks for the font.

85 Willes Road.
