Summer Holiday.

Blackstock Road Small Business Update

Summer Holiday.

Summer Holiday. We're all going on a summer holiday. We'll be closed from the 1st to the 8th August. Back open on the 9th August at 8am. We close for a week in the summer every year - most of you know this by now. It means everyone can have time off together, which is very rare. This year is also special as Kat is getting married up in Yorkshire, so some of the staff will be heading up for that and we all need adequate time to prepare / recover!

Birthday and Jubilee!

Blackstock Road Brunch Cafe Finsbury Park Salt the Radish Update

Birthday and Jubilee!

Birthday and Jubilee! Wrote the title then immediately googled “what is a jubilee”… turns out it’s an anniversary of an event usually denoting the 25th, 40th, 50th etc anniversary and in the case of Queen Lizzie… 70th! We had our 5th STR birthday recently, not quite the same length of time, but a significant milestone for us none the less. We celebrated as we always do with cake! The switched up bank holidays have thrown us a bit but we’ve decided to close for both of them so we can have some time off to celebrate Spring. So that’s both...

Christmas Closure and Covid Response.

Blackstock Road Brunch Cafe Salt the Radish Update

Christmas Closure and Covid Response. Just a quick update to let you know that we are now operating as takeaway only until we close for Christmas. We’re short staffed and, as Covid is very much back, we want to reduce the risk to staff as much as we possibly can, so that they can make it home for Christmas this year. We’re also slightly extending our winter break, so our last day open is now Tuesday 21st December. We are fully closed from the 22nd December to the 3rd January. Back open again at 8am on the 4th! We would...

Winter Break.

Blackstock Road Brunch Cafe Finsbury Park Salt the Radish Update

Winter Break.

Winter Break. We choose to close the café over Christmas and New Year every year. We have done this since we opened in 2017 and it has become so important to us that all of the staff and the café itself gets this break, at the same time. A full closure / reset. We have even started having a summer break too, during our quietest time in August. It’s been a tough year, tougher than 2020 perhaps? Physically harder at least, getting back into the working routine not to mention staff shortages, supply issues (packaging and carbonated drinks where are...

Summer Holiday.

Blackstock Road Brunch Cafe Cafe Finsbury Park Salt the Radish Update

Summer Holiday.

Summer Holiday. Hello Everyone! We hope you are all ok, enjoying some warmer weather in between the rain showers. We just wanted to let you know that we have decided to close the café for a week from Monday the 2nd of August to Sunday the 8th. Re-opening again on Monday the 9th. It’s not an easy decision to close the café for a week, especially as things are just starting to open up again, but we think it’s the best thing to do for us right now. It’s helping us manage staff holidays ensuring everyone gets a proper break...
