SquareMeal Review of Highness Cafe & Tea Room

Prettily enthroned on Highbury Barn – the neighbourly enclave between Highbury & Islington and Arsenal – this cake shop/deli/tearoom has lots of local foodie neighbours and keeps up appearances with an enticing window display of home-baked treats. If you have a sweet tooth, look no further than, say, a slice of fig and chocolate cake, carrot cake, peach and coconut sponge or a chocolate mousse tart served on quaint vintage china. If something savoury is required, consider the home-baked quiches, sandwiches and assorted jacket potatoes – all washed down with properly made tea and coffee. Stripped-back wooden floors, white walls, mismatched furniture and quirky curios set the tone, whether you are parked downstairs or on the less frenetic mezzanine.
