We’re lucky: there are some truly first-rate neighbourhood cafés across the wider area. We’re pretty sure you have your own personal favourite.
And while ours include the delightful long-running Mario’s Café, vegan haven The Fields Beneath, and central pit stop Saint Espresso, the award for the friendliest deli-café hybrid surely goes to none other than Truffles, tucked away on York Rise in deepest Dartmouth Park.
Inside our new free print issue, out today, we speak to Lee about why he quit a job at Buckingham Palace to follow his passion at the height of recession, the deli’s imminent ten-year anniversary, and the many tasty new developments and pop-ups on the horizon.
Elsewhere, we give you the lowdown on all manner of new openings, including an exciting new bar from the Patron posse. We also count down north London’s ten best pubs, speak to local musical pioneers Kinobe about their new album, and ask artist Mark Waddell why he puts enigmatic signs up in his street.
