Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Phew - another coffee shop - but in Park Road . . . .
"We popped in there this morning for a browse and a drink, and we're met with a friendly hello by the proprietor and his charming Roman assistant. The café seems like a welcome addition to that quiet corner of Crouch End, and I look…"

Hal Davis replied to Ella B.'s discussion Finsbury Park Station- Will it be Safe at Night?
"I would recommend, especially if you're a Piccadilly Line passenger, that you get off the train at Caledonian Road and then catch the 91 bus to Crouch End from the stop just outside. Of course, this route would work best if your journey is…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Celeste - not too bad
"I tried a light lunch in Celeste - a bagel with a fairly bland ham filling, a tasty slab of carrot cake, and a nice house-made fruit juice - and got chatting with the owner, a delightful young Romanian lady called Ileana who's decided to give…"

Hal Davis replied to Ella B.'s discussion W7 Bus Route
"Just a quick comment on Mark's opinion that "the Victoria Line...is a good deal speedier than the Piccadilly" from Finsbury Park. This may be so if travelling to Green Park, but invariably during the rush hour when I travel to or via…"

Hal Davis replied to Ella B.'s discussion W7 Bus Route
"Mike's use of the 41 bus and Archway to get to town is definitely the preferable way to go. Archway anyway is a more user-friendly station than Finsbury Park. Another alternative for travelling into central London is to get the 91 to Caledonian…"

Hal Davis replied to Ella B.'s discussion W7 Bus Route
"I've raised the question of unacceptable local bus delays before with Transport for London, and the usual response is that the driver hasn't turned up for his/her shift. I sometimes wonder if some of the W7 drivers aren't on…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Munch cafe bar - Crouch Hill - my first favourable impressions
"I'm happy to hear that Munch, which I pass almost daily but haven't yet been inside, is worth a go. Re Edith's House, the successor to the late lamented Zer, it's just as chintzy as I feared it would be. It hasn't yet…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Zer to close?
"As a PS to my last posting, there exists an Edith's House café & tea room in Rye, Kent, whose name plate looks identical to the one submitted as a planning application apart from the colouring. According to Trip Advisor it has a…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Zer to close?
"I can now reveal what happened with Zer, having been given the story today by Ösden (the manageress) when I had Sunday lunch in the Zer Café at Manor House where she is now ensconced. It seems that the Crouch End Zer had been put on the…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Zer to close?
"Zer's owner opened up an additional café in Manor House over a year ago as an adjunct to the Crouch End Zer, so it's not exactly a relocation but more a diminution of his holdings. It's probably my dimwittedness, but I…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Zer to close?
"There exists another Turkish restaurant in Crouch End called 'Sumac', just past the YMCA but on the opposite side of the road, and it's reputed to be good though I haven't tried it myself yet. I wish the Bouga squatters the best…"

Hal Davis replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Zer to close?
"This is sad news indeed. Zer was my default café in Crouch End, and I was the first person to review it on Trip Advisor, with 5 stars to boot. I'll miss the friendly ambience, the care and attention I received - not to mention the tasty…"
