St Paul Islington is a neighbourhood cafe featuring a Victorian storefront and white tiled walls with green accents. The interior is decorated with simple wooden furniture and a bench adorned with warm-toned pillows by the large windows; this is where you want to be for people watching.
The extraordinary patisserie counter lures customers in, and while some have a coffee (Caravan) and pastry to go, others opt for a lengthier breakfast in the warm cafe. St Paul Islington welcomes laptops during weekdays, while weekends are reserved for family, friends and their pets brunching together.
The well-executed breakfast menu presents customers with uncomplicated breakfast classics such as homemade beans on toast, while also offering more contemporary dishes like N’Duja potato hash with parsley, spring onion and a poached egg. For a sweet option, try the toasted waffles with seasonal fruit, yoghurt and maple syrup. Those in search of a boozy brunch will also be happy to know that St Paul Islington doubles as a wine bar and will gladly serve a bottle of fizz with your meal.
