SquareMeal Review of Gail's Crouch End

Gail’s burgeoning London branches have been keeping yummy mummies in sourdough & babyccinos since 2005. This clutch of fashionably appointed bakery/cafés – all white walls & exposed brick – pride themselves on their ‘no nasties’ approach to artisan baking & their place at the hub of the community. Counters groan with breads, cakes & pastries from all over the world, including croissants, pumpernickel & chocolate halva buns to eat in or take away. You can also get more substantial fill-ups – perhaps a full breakfast (washed down with Union coffee or JING tea) or a fairly healthy lunch of soup, salad or a sandwich. It all looks dreamy, although some readers suggest it’s a case of style over substance. ‘Confused’ & ‘slightly abrasive’ staff – not to mention elevated prices – certainly don’t do Gail’s any favours.

Stinky! Properly disgusting. Generally good food and ok service but the toilet door opens directly onto the eating area and the food prep area. This is against food hygiene standards and means that you often get toilet smells and or artificial toilet fragrance wafting over you while you eat. Lovely! How difficult would it be to fit a decent fan and an automatic door closer?
