Eversholt Street’s Impetus-PEF helps transform the lives of disadvantaged young people by providing long-term support, expertise and funding to youth-focused charities. We quizzed the charity’s Communications Manager, Lizzie Bishop, about her favourite local spots.
“We have our pick of the coffee chains around here, but I love Leyas, a local independent that serves a top quality espresso. Melissa’s is great too – a fantastic, vegan-friendly bakery up the road that does excellent bagels and for lunch – El Parador on Eversholt Street doesn’t look much but the food is sublime.”
If you love live music, you’ll love Koko, where it’s possible to see everything from indie bands to hip-hop artists with a packed calendar of acts. The palatial former theatre, which holds up to 1,400, has a surprisingly intimate feel. Get there early for a drink on the roof terrace before your headliner hits the stage.
An eclectic collection of open-air and indoor markets come together to form London’s best known and most popular markets. The Camden Market have evolved over the years, and today they’re a colourful, lively sea of stalls between industrial-era buildings. You’ll find absolutely everything here, from one-off designer fashion wear to an excellent espresso.
With cosy vintage sofas to curl up on, Leyas has a reputation for serving Camden’s finest espresso. There’s a good patisserie range, too – try the banana loaf – and all your brunch favourites, including a mean eggs benedict. Leyas also has a performance and creative workshop space within the café, so there’s always something interesting to check out whilst you enjoy your daily brew.
Kerb street food collective is making London taste better, one destination at a time. The King’s Cross venue on King’s Boulevard is no exception. With plenty of space to sit and enjoy, and half a dozen daily-changing stalls, it’s a great spot for everything from Vietnamese flavours to hunger-busting burritos.
Heaven for craft beer aficionados, Euston Tap boasts eight rotating cask ales, 20 keg beers and 150 bottled beers. There’s also a heated garden bar that you can enjoy all year around, and in summer the pavement outside is buzzing convivially with folks enjoying their pale ales, stouts, ryes and bitters. If you’re peckish, they’ll serve you up Ray’s pizza – a delicious slice of New York.
Discover the traditional cuisine and culture of Argentina at La Patagonia. The finest Argentinian beef sizzles on the grill of this local favourite served with wine sourced from Mendoza, the famous wine region in the foothills of the Andes.
