Latteria is an all-day cafe in Islington that serves everything from eggy breakfasts, to take away salads, to your classic sit-down hearty Italian fare. This place feels like the lovechild of a shopping-centre canteen and a modern diner, and it’ll work for a business breakfast or a casual weeknight catch up with your mates. This isn’t the best Italian food you’ll find in London, or even in Islington, but it should definitely be on your radar if you work in the area and are after some morning pastries to eat on the way into the office, or a grab-and-go octopus salad come lunchtime.
