Review: Haberdashery, Crouch End

Haberdashery, a Crouch End newcomer, has become a favourite of mine, particularly on a Sunday morning when one desperately needs a good old plate of wholesome sustenance. The Haberdashery, eatery, cum coffee house and old vinyls, cum bakery, was Best Coffee Shop Runner up in 2011 (LL Awards 2011) and it deserves to be so.

The food, although I have only seen the weekend menu, is superb. It is served on mismatched vintage crockery, and is fresh and deliciously wholesome. There are lots of hearty sandwiches, the Club sandwich (char grilled chicken, crispy bacon, lettuce and avocado mayonnaise) is a firm favourite of mine, as is the Steak Au 'poivre-wich' (steak with melted cheese in a crispy yet oh so soft baguette), served with a side of hearty, seasonal soups. Other dishes include an all day breakfast, which has to-die-for hash browns (full of crispy onions), Scandinavian meatballs, salmon and mackerel fishcakes as well as big bowls of salads and delicious baked good (the muffins come in small terracotta pots!). There are also looks to be a large range of lovely homemade cakes, but one has yet to pass my lips. Only time will tell!
