About My Cottage Cafe

Just a short walk from London’s Finsbury Park station, My Cottage Cafe is flying its all-too-modest flag for home-style Lebanese cuisine from its quaint premises along Clifton Terrace, right next to the Finsbury Park Theatre. Owned and operated by a husband and wife team, it’s hard to find more a more authentic Lebanese menu and meze selection than that on offer here, all prepared from scratch using ingredients that the chef selects himself. As any fan of Lebanese food knows, delicious vegetarian options abound, but there’s also a bounty of fish and halal meat dishes available too.

Further Information

Whether or not you are capable of feeling proper nostalgia for the Levant, dining at My Cottage Cafe makes you feel like you’re guests in the Middle Eastern home of the husband and wife team that run Finsbury Park’s favourite Lebanese eatery, far away from London. Hung with heirlooms and curios, and with seating on long communal cushioned benches at reclaimed tables (a couple outside as well), there’s a quaint eccentricity at work in this diminutive Clifton Terrace restaurant that makes the experience all the more memorable. All this is merely a prelude to the fabulous food, however. Every day, the chef heads out to market, bringing back fresh, hand-picked ingredients to weave into a tapestry of traditional vegetarian, maritime and meaty (halal) Lebanese dishes, accompanied by refreshing homemade mint lemonade and juices, plus fiery Lebanese arak, Champagne and cocktails.

Ideally located next to the Finsbury Park Theatre, My Cottage Cafe is a perfect spot to share a stack of inventive Lebanese meze platters before or after the show. The signature My Cottage Mezza is a good start, featuring the chef’s most popular dishes: falafel and hummus, cheese sambousek pastries, spicy aubergine moutabel, fresh tabbouleh and warak enab, stuffed vine leaves. Ask the friendly family of wait staff if you’d like to swap out a dish for, say, the punchy spiced sujuk or the seed-sprinkled halloumi. Heftier meals down Clifton Terrace are also possible, with all of the charcoal grilled mains served alongside My Cottage Cafe’s house Mediterranean salad and freshly baked flatbread. From kibbeh and freca to fried or grilled king prawns, these dishes are lovingly prepared representatives of Lebanese cuisine in north London.

Fantastic food. Lovely people. Highly recommend. Small, so recommend booking. The aubergine stew is fabulous, so is the chargrilled chicken. So are the prawns and lamb.

We were going to the play at the theatre next door. Excellent choice for quick bite and glass of wine before the play. Service was with a smile and the food was good. We will def go to My Cottage Cafe again.

We love the relaxed vibe here and the food is super tasty. We have been so often, on different days, with different people, but it's always a great call! We know our way around the menu now: the Fattoush salad is not to be missed, the pastries are also a highlight.

Excellent Lebanese food and efficient friendly service We were a party of 4 and our reserved table was ready when we arrived. Good menu from which we chose a number of hot and cold starters. All tasted really good and the bill was reasonable for London. We'll definitely go there again.

Very good food - actually some of the nicest Lebanese dishes I've had in London, particularly an aubergine starter and beautifully done chicken livers. Only misses a 5 because of a slightly clueless server playing inappropriate music (rock in a middle eastern restaurant, after all that design care to make a pleasant visual setting?) but who changed it when asked.

The atmosphere was lively and warm, and we instantly felt comfortable. Our waitress did seem a little stressed because it was very busy, but she was great and the food was delicious. The only thing was that she brought the bill before we'd even ordered coffees and it felt like we'd had our time! Despite this, I will go back.

Pleasant, helpful staff. Very good food, freshly cooked. Lots of choices of tasty vegetarian dishes. Staff checked if everything was to our liking, which it was. Interesting and comfortable casual setting and good selection of unintrusive background music.
