This old-fashioned caff has been going since 1959, and it’s an Islington institution. The menu divides into standard caff fare, including enormous breakfasts and Italian dishes. And all at crazy low prices. Big plates of pasta are the favourite at lunchtime, when it’s packed out with locals. And when it’s really busy at mealtimes, you might find yourself sharing a table – but this only adds to the lively atmosphere. The owners manage the crowds well (both when seated and when waiting), and service is speedy. Just mind your time. Other customers need your seat.
