Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Had an early lunch in Munch today. It's a delightful little place mainly done out with reclaimed wood and furniture. It's a cafe / bar. So the emphasis is relaxed - hardly any need to wait till the sun is over the yard arm to start ordering the cocktails, or , as we did, take a little smoked mackerel or avocado on toast. All very tasty. And go back in the evening for more cocktails or beer or wine.
The menu changes slightly in the evening with the introduction of sharing platters.
The layout provides window tables, comfy armchairs and a very discreet corner just out of sight, where , if you were lucky enough to have an assignation, you could conduct it very discreetly.
How many more cafes does Crouch End need.? Does no-one eat at home any more?
Edith's House in Rye is very popular. The reviews online seem pretty favourable. Reminds me in decor of the old Wisteria Tea Rooms (I think that was the name) that were on Middle Lane years ago.
