Cinnamon Village has a small corner site near the Tufnell Park end of Fortess Road with big windows on two sides, and it’s a sunny spot for coffee, breakfast, brunch or lunch. Turkish dishes including tava and menemen are the way to go if you want a hot meal (the owners are from Turkey), but the chicken, bacon, and avocado on ciabatta is possibly the best sandwich in NW5.
