They are particularly good in the breakfast, brunch department which they serve all day.  Choose from the hearty dishes; English Breakfast, Veggie Breakfast, Oak Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs, Eggs Benedict or French Toast with Cinnamon Banana.  Lighter options include; Eggs on Toast, Porridge with Pears, Yoghurt with Muesli, Breakfast Rolls and Toast with Preserves.

I’ve been in there a couple of times recently, with my friend Richy and also my Homeboy.   Homeboy loved the place and enjoyed his veggie breakfast while I ate the French toast, with two lattes the total price of our breakfast was £16.20.

In terms of seating, there are a couple of tables outside and if you walk through the main space you’ll find a nice covered area out back and also a small yard. The Haberdashery, Crouch End, Homegirl London (3)

The Haberdashery Alfresco Seating

The interiors are village fate style, think painted panelled wood on the walls and flag bunting.   There’s a memo board highlighting events hosted by Haberdashery.  The chairs and tables are mismatched and distressed – so all very shabby chic.

It’s frequented by mums with babies and kids, couples and friends catching up for a good gossip.  A nice place for a lazy weekend brunch.   They have toilets and free Wi-Fi.  There is a second branch located at Stoke Newington High Street which has its own interior style – retro tiled walls and minimal décor.  Crouch End and Stoke Newington are both lovely places to shop – check out the features in my ‘Shops’ section.  Credits: text and images by Homegirl London.
