By night, this spacious and bright Hornsey Road spin-off from Newington Green’s Jolene is all about pizza fritta, sharing plates of mushroom and ricotta cannelloni, tamworth chops served with swede and apple, but it’s also an all-day bakery. That means that throughout the morning and afternoon you can eat (or takeaway) excellent pastries fresh from the ovens out back. You can also drink coffee and even get a bit of work done—though we absolutely would not pitch up here with our laptop riser, trackpad, and external keyboard. There’s plenty of activity at all times of day, and it’s is as good for lunchtime catch ups with workmates over slices of ricotta, potato, pancetta, and wild garlic pizza, as it is for one-on-one evening gossip sessions featuring Basque cheesecake and bottle of something organic and funky. There’s also plenty of covered seating outside and you can book via their website.
