Cafe Renoir, Kentish Town Road, NW5

Visited: Friday 18th June 2010

Interior: Renoir was the cafe I remember the Hampstead and Highgate Express typifying the newly emergent cafe society in Kentish Town. I’m not sure if it ever came to fruition, but it’s certainly more cafe than caff – wooden tables, greenery, painted walls. A drinks license which means it has a wall of bottles, which always adds a slightly different atmosphere. Service was friendly if slow, and the Italian staff really did prefer to talk to each other than serve.

Food: I can remember being unimpressed by Renoir in the past, but I have nothing to complain about my toasted sandwich – bread and filling both fine and a decaff coffee was nice. In common with others of its ilk, the menu goes far beyond the usual fare (although breakfast, sandwiches and jackets are all available) notably a significant crepes menu. Prices match the superior choice (and quality?).
