North London – Craving Coffee
You know you are in for a warm welcome when a venue has an Instagram page dedicated to its furry patrons – check out @craving_puppies. Located within the creative space of Gaunson House in Tottenham, Fetch & Follow first met Craving Coffee’s founders Rachel and Matt on their coffee cart at the Tottenham Farmers’ Market five years ago. Fast forward to today and their business has grown into a thriving community café offering eat-in and takeaway menus with dishes such as huevos rancheros and marinated courgette and hummus sandwiches, as well as specialty coffee and tea, craft beer, boutique wine and cocktails. It’s our go-to spot with George and Frank on days when we’re working from home.

East London – Mae + Harvey
Another foodie friend of Fetch & Follow, we met café owner Natasha when we both had stalls in our former home at Netil Market. We would flock to see her for her amazing juices and milk-based drinks. She now serves her delicious drinks and homemade, healthy all-day brunch, as well as morning coffee, fresh pastries and cakes from this lovely, friendly café on the Roman Road. With a superb relaxed atmosphere, dogs are very welcome, so give them a try one lunch. You won’t be disappointed.

Central London – Neal’s Yard
A bright and quaint courtyard to discover in the Seven Dials area of London’s Covent Garden, you’ll find it through alleys off Shorts Gardens and Monmouth Street. The home of Monty Python’s former studios (look up to see the Blue Plaque), it’s perfect place for midday mindfulness or to people watch and enjoy the bright side of life in the Yard’s colourful surroundings.
With a seating area in the centre of the courtyard, bring your own lunch or take your pick from takeout pizza from Homeslice or fresh food from 26 Grains, followed by an afternoon treat of St John’s Bakery doughnuts and coffee from Jacob the Angel.
