Using only the freshest ingredients Coffee Cake offers an innovative blend of French continental and North African cuisine, from hand crafted artisan pastries, cakes and breads to delicious and beautifully prepared salads –I give people what I would want to eat– says Ali.
As a stylish daytime cafe boutique in Crouch End, Coffee Cake is undeniably brilliant, thanks not only to a stunning array of artisan cakes and pastries, but also to the innovative selection of delicious cold dishes and lush salads. But this is more than an inviting bakery. Behind the pastries and snowy meringues piled in the window is a deli counter with lush salads, available day and evening, eat-in or take away.

Welcome to all from Johor Bahru
I was a huge regular when I lived in Archway. Since I've moved however, I haven't been able to visit as often. Cakes are to die for, salads very tasty and filling! Breakfasts still worth getting out of bed for! The chef should be very proud!
Response: Lilia, Thank you so much for your kind words and for getting out of bed for our breakfasts. As a baker I know just how hard getting out of bed can be :-)
Delicious food. Great place. Excellent service.
Went to Coffee Cake today for a late lunch. As always, the food was delicious and couldn't be faulted.
What wasn't up to scratch was the service from one of the servers in particular. I don't like leaving a bad review in any respect but I am afraid it has influenced how I feel about returning in the future. Unfortunately, she talked at us and wouldn't listen to such an extent that a very simple order took nearly 10 minutes. In my humble opinion she just needs to focus on developing her active listening skills and all would be well. It's not a pleasant experience to be talked at by a server. Thus, only three stars instead of five.
Response: Hi, I am sorry you felt this way. This server was on her first day and perhaps a little nervous. I have discussed your thoughts with her and am happy to say that she has become a great and friendly asset to us - even if a little less chatty. I hope you will come visit us again and if you have any problems please do not hesitate to speak with me, Ali
I bought a mixed selection of salads to take away. Fantastic textures, flavours and variety of colours.
Only wish I had gone the whole way and bought some cake!
Ah well, there is always tomorrow...
I went there with my wife and the food was just sublime welldone carry on the hard work
Response: Thank you for your kind words
I have been coming here for ages and it has never once let me down. Their creations, both sweet and savoury, are fresh and original; combining classics tastes with a cosmopolitan twist. The owner has a strong personality which creates a kind of family atmosphere among the staff who work there. Coffee Cake is, by far, the best bakery in Crouch End and to be honest that is really saying something.
