Pophams is either an Islington coffee spot that bakes in house, or an Islington bakery that also serves coffee. Whichever way you want to put it, their coffee is excellent and their baked stuff even better. It’s on a quiet corner off the Essex Road, and has a tidy little terrace out front, so it’s a great place to head for if you’re trying to impress someone with your good taste and decent knowledge of London’s backstreets.
