The Front Room Cafe

Hello and welcome to The Front Room Cafe. We are a small local independent N4 eatery located in Tollington Park, just off Stroud Green Road in Finsbury Park, London N4. We’ve been here for nearly ten years now and pride ourselves on being a home away from home. That’s why we decided to call ourselves The Front Room Cafe. We offer good, honest home cooked food and a lovely place to sit back and relax. If you’re searching for a Finsbury Park cafe or Stroud Green Road Cafe we’d love to see you.

The Front Room Cafe Food

We’ve taken time to evolve our menu so that it’s just right for our local clientele. What’s really important to us is that everything is prepared fresh on our premises. Our hollandaise sauce, pancake mix, cakes, quiche and soup is all made by us. Our menu isn’t vast but it does offer you enough choice covering breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon treats. We serve our breakfast throughout the day and our lunch favourites can also be ordered for breakfast. On the menu you’ll find a full English breakfast and a vegetarian version. Eggs benedict, royale and florentine with our freshly prepared hollandaise sauce. We also offer breakfast style sandwiches, croissants and muesli with fruit and yoghurt. Our customers love our pancakes which you can order with bacon and maple syrup or a sweeter option with fresh fruit, natural yoghurt and maple syrup.

Lunch and brunch style dishes include croque monsieur and madame, creamy mash with veggie or meaty sausages and of course onion gravy, meatballs or vegetarian pasta. We always have a quiche and soup of the day plus a few specials. You can order a selection of sandwiches and salads. The gourmet burger is a big hit which comes with wedges and a salad. We also have a couple of chicken dishes on the menu. Overall it’s good, honest home cooked food made fresh just for you. We serve Allpress Coffee, a wide selection of teas, smoothies, freshly squeezed orange juice and wine or bottled beer from 11am.

The Front Room Cafe Space

We’ve made our interiors as comfortable as possible. The decor is akin to an eccentric front room so you’ll find plenty of interesting objects on display. We have one wall covered with bookshelves so you’ll find books, vintage typewriters, retro radios and plenty of kitsch ornaments.
