The quest for accommodation in London was broken up with an exploration of Blackstock Road in Finsbury Park.
This is such a quirky road, with graffiti, interesting shop fronts or signs and a great mix of food and culture.
This hardware shop had one of the most eye-catching shop signs.
The cafe that my companion and I stopped at for lunch and a much needed energy boost was called ‘Good for Food’ and was really delicious. The bread didn’t have any gluten in it – and to my surprise, it was extremely tasty (and filling!) The drizzle of olive oil added an extra flavour and enhanced the whole dish.
