NFT London Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park used to be somewhere you passed through rather than lingered but with Stroud Green Road slowly being populated with numerous eating and drinking options and £5 million invested in tarting up the park, it really isn't that bad. You could do worse than have a Sunday roast at The Old Dairy, prop up the bar at the Stapleton Tavern or grab a coffee at The Deli at 80. For those who like a bit of culture the Park Theatre is saving you a trip to the West End.

The Happening Bagel Bakery
It takes a certain boldness to name yourself 'Happening,' I always say. And to be fair this bagel bakery slash shrine to all things Arsenal is usually packed. The sacred English custom of 'the queue' has no place here. It has given way to a more bar-like system, relying on the attention of the stubbly guy behind the counter and the good will of fellow bagel hounds. On match day, the polyester-clad throng of Gooners tussling for attention has been known to cause a halo of static electricity to form, illuminating the rows of plaited Chola bread, slabs of cake and piles of bagels with an eerie glow. The bagels are shaped, boiled and baked in the open kitchen at the back of the shop, and are chewy, tasty, golden things of wonder, especially late on a Friday.
