Thinking of treating yourself or your team to something other than the same old Tesco meal deal but stuck for where to go? Check out our round up of the best north London eateries for grabbing a quick and delicious bite with colleagues right round the corner from your company’s office space.
Where to go for lunch in Angel
For a thoroughly unfussy yet utterly delicious meal that won’t break the bank, pay a visit to Afghan Kitchen, which you’ll find overlooking Islington Green, just a short walk from The Workwell office space on City Road. The simple homecooked menu features classic Afghan dishes including subtly spiced stews and freshly made breads. We recommend ordering a big selection and sharing with colleagues for a relaxed and sociable working lunch.
Top lunch spots in King’s Cross
The King’s Cross foodie scene has come a long way in recent years thanks to the major regeneration of Coal Drops Yard. This vibrant, canal-side hub is now home to several top-notch restaurants that are well worth a visit on your lunch hour, especially if you’re making use of the coworking facilities at Impact Hub King’s Cross. Spice up your working week with a trip to Casa Pastor for some punchy, Mexico City inspired tacos, tostadas and quesadillas, and be sure to make a stop at Longboys on your way back to the office to pick up a box or two of gourmet donuts for an afternoon pick me up.
Lunch on the go in Hampstead
Stood outside Hampstead’s King William IV pub is a foodie gem so tiny you’d probably miss it if it wasn’t for the queue of adoring fans waiting to get their fix. Serving freshly flipped sweet and savoury crêpes, La Crêperie de Hampstead has become somewhat of a local institution. Don’t be put off by the wait, we promise
Where to go for lunch in Kentish Town
Fed up of the same old Pret sandwich? We don’t blame you. Take things to an epic new level on your next lunch break with a trip to neighbourhood Filipino bakery Pandera. This female run business offers a menu of seriously substantial sandos with delicious fillings like corned beef hash, panko chicken and mushroom and egg and truffle. Follow it up with one of their elegant pastry creations or the Filipino sweet treat, taho.
A quick lunch in Camden Town
The legendary Camden Market is home to many of London’s best street food vendors. From tacos to toasties, rendangs to rotis and kebabs to katsu curry, there truly is something for everyone. And for those who think they’ve seen it all, there’s even such a thing as a Yorkshire pudding burrito. This is certainly the place to be for foodies working in the likes of Camden Collective and Work.Life Camden’s office and coworking spaces.
