Review: Foxcroft & Ginger, Soho

Seedy Soho seems to be a thing of the past these days. Berwick Street, with its market, cloth stores and sex shops, has had a bit of rejuvenation recently. While the market is still there, it’s now selling artisan breads and wraps. Some of the sex shops have been closed down and the unit on…

Review: The Cardigan Club Cafe, Tufnell Park

Tufnell Park shouldn’t really be as nice as it is. On the stretch of road between the transport hub of Archway and the tourist centre of Camden, the area is no more than about half a mile of businesses along the road side. However, with the Heath not too far and a number of cafes,…

Review: Flat Planet, Soho

About I love a good pun, so Flat Planet gets points for not only having a pun on the famous flat whites of Down Under but also doubling down on the word play by serving flat bread pizzas. This café, set at the top of the recently revived Carnaby Street on the edges of Soho,…
