Cardigan Club Cafe

*** Update 23 June 2014: This cafe is unfortunately closed down now. Very sad! :(  Now I have to get my breakfast elsewhere…***

I’ve been smitten with that new cafe in Tufnell Park, the Cardigan Club Cafe, ever since I discovered it a couple of weeks ago. I think it has been open for a few months now but the outside is relatively inconspicuous. I guess that’s why it hadn’t really caught my eye.

It has really cute decoration and you can tell that the owners put a lot of effort into it and have great attention to detail. The walls are covered with a mix of cardigans, Vietnamese rice bags, old knitting magazines in picture frames and tons of other stuff. Upstairs they have comfy couches and book shelves. Downstairs they have tables and a three window seats where you can look outside into the street. They also have some vintage props like an old typewriter and sewing machine.

The food is a mix of Vietnamese and French. The coffee is good and so far I’ve tried the Vietnamese breakfast omelette (“Yellow Fever” – also comes in bread roll) and the garlic pork pork banh mi baguette. Both were excellent and I’m sure I’ll go back there very soon!
