Blackstock Road Brunch Brunch Cafe Finsbury Park Menu Salt the Radish Update

May Happenings.

May Happenings. Outdoor hospitality is open again and, although that doesn’t include us, we are excited! We’re excited to be able to visit our hospitality friends in Finsbury Park and have brunch on plates and wine in glasses. Yeah it’s still a bit chilly, but who cares!!

It’s nice to give the café and the staff a break. Although we haven’t been open to dine-in customers so far this year, we have been working just as hard, so we’re all having the day off to relax. We’re open as normal for the rest of the weekend. So please come and see us Friday to Sunday for our take-away breakfast and brunch...

Baban's Naan Shop Baban’s Naan shop is a Blackstock Road institution. They’re pretty busy all the time, but on Friday and Saturday afternoons / evenings you will see hoards of Finsbury Park locals queuing up for their naans and wraps. They work so hard!

What to do with Dukkah.
