Workers Cafe, Upper Street, N1

Visited: Sunday 4th May 2008; Last visited: Sunday 21st February 2010


I had a superior dining experience at my last visit – really tasty mushrooms on toast and a proper bright orange tea. It is one of London’s odder caffs though – as one with its many tiled and orange-menu’d brothers, but half the clientele were reading the Observer rather than the News of the World…

Appearance: Modern traditional ie very, very plastic, done up to look like a burger bar with white and orange the main colour themes. I had fond memories of this place as a respite from the general wankiness of upper street, but was disappointed as it somehow seemed to lack atmosphere.

Food: Nothing special. I had mushrooms and grilled tomatoes on very poor supermarket granary toast and a nice mug of tea. However it’s cheap – a generous portion came to less than 3 pounds (and tea was indeed in a mug).
