Set in a handsome brick building along Green Lanes, a stone’s throw from Manor House tube station and with London’s Finsbury Park as a backdrop, Park View Cafe is a no-fuss eatery offering all-day breakfasts, sandwiches, panini and ciabatta, omelettes and a long list of variations on the eggs benedict theme, jacket potatoes, burgers, and much more, all the way through to hearty grills of the British and Turkish varieties.
Park View Cafe has found itself a genius home along Green Lanes. Catering to the thirsty and famished who have whiled away the hours in London’s Finsbury Park, as well as commuters emerging from (or descending into) Manor House tube on their way to (and from) work, Park View has all the bases covered from their petite and rather gorgeous heritage premises, right by the station and close to the intersection with Seven Sisters Road. Park View is destined to become a destination for those on the borderlands of Haringey and Hackney.
Let’s invert etiquette when it comes to eating and begin with Park View Cafe’s sweeter selection. It’s at the corner of Green Lanes and Seven Sisters Road, right by Manor House tube, that Haringey and Hackney locals can grab a stack of pancake of either the traditional lemon and sugar variety, the kids’ favourite Nutella and banana kind, or the more outre outing of cherry or Hawaiian, or apple, cinnamon and walnuts. As for drinks, beer and wine balance out a classic range of soft drink parklife refreshers, alongside iced coffees for those hot summer days that London has been known to come up with. Generously appointed meat dishes from the charcoal grill take Park View beyond cafe status, as do the Turkish grills, while classic pasta dishes round out an offering that goes well beyond mere snacking.
A no thrills, cheap english breakfast cafe where you can sit out side and watch the world pass by. After i ate i sat there for a while drinking tea and reading my book, the staff did not mind.
