SquareMeal Review of The Blue Legume Crouch End

On the site of Crouch End’s redoubtable World Café, newcomer The Blue Legume is already popular with locals in search of a satisfying weekend brunch. Like its siblings in Islington and Stoke Newington, it boasts a comprehensive breakfast menu ranging from eggs Benedict to chocolate con churros via Mediterranean platefuls of grilled haloumi, spicy sausage and feta. Savouries and cakes from the tiled counter can be enjoyed over a top-notch coffee, while burgers, pasta and paninis hit the spot at lunchtime. BYO (£5 corkage) also makes dinner a wallet-friendly option: try grilled king prawns followed by spinach and ricotta ravioli or rib-eye and fries. Expect quality sourcing, generous portions and wholesome flavours – all delivered by welcoming staff. Pavement tables supplement the bright interior, which is fashionably decked out with vintage wallpaper and chandeliers, stripped-back floorboards and exposed brick.

Not sure if something has changed since the poor reviews but have to say we just enjoyed a really super lunch this afternoon. Coffee was tasty, the food well cooked and fresh (personally recommend the gravadlax) and the potions very generous! The staff were attentive but not overbearing and made for a relaxing time. Will go again for sure :)

The Blue Legume is always 100% welcoming and go out of their way to to make you feel at home. Great coffee and very tasty staple dishes. Be specific and they will tailor it to your liking. The real testament of the place is that there is always a queue, so book ahead. On my way there now! Happy Easter 2013!

Love the one in Stoke Newington. Hard to see how this one has the same name. The food here is really bad, not served cold or that the portions are too small.. but taste wise it's like its out of a packet and leaves a sour taste in the mouth. You'd think with all the effort that went into the fancy decor, they'd put some love into cooking. ok for a coffee, i'd say go anywhere else for a bite.
