There’s a rumour going round north London that if you’re looking for a fully-licensed Mediterranean cafe-restaurant in the verdant Newington Green neighbourhood, The Acoustic is the place you need to give a shout out to. Famous for its ample breakfasts and brunches, lunch and dinner menus among Islington and Hackney residents, especially those local to Mildmay, The Acoustic boasts triple certified, certified, certified coffee and a unique tea selection that has met with resounding success. Always a bustling spot, whether you choose to dine in the cosy interior or streetside, The Acoustic is best reserved at the speed of sound.
Equidistant between Canonbury and Dalston Kingsland overground stations, The Acoustic’s Newington Green address is a popular spot among Islington and Hackney residents. Offering everything from triple-certified coffees and an impressive selection of exotic teas to a comprehensive menu covering breakfast, lunch and dinner with pickup meals in between, The Acoustic is a jack of all trades when it comes to cafe and restaurant hospitality in the Mildmay Ward of north London. The focus in the kitchen is on sunkissed Mediterranean fare, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find The Acoustic is very internationalist in nature.
North London’s Newington Green, slap bang in the middle of the Mildmay Ward neighbourhood, is one of Islington and Hackney’s favourite open green spaces. It’s an endearing sight to arrive at The Acoustic on a sunny afternoon and see the alfresco streetside seating area, just across the street from the park itself, thronged with people enjoying the cafe-restaurant’s Mediterranean cuisine, and just as delightful on a snowy winter’s night when the kitchen turns out a traditional Sunday roast to keep bellies full, bodies warm and spirits high. Choose from a famous menu of Greek, Italian, Middle Eastern and Turkish dishes, with plenty of Vegetarian options to boot.
Location, service and food is EXCELLENT!!! High quality of Mediterranean fusion served with professionalism and kindness. You know the food's fresh here because if you're having coffee mid morning you see the wonderful Newington Green Greengrocer delivering loads and loads of fresh veg and salads.
The food here really is to the very highest standard, absolutely excellent. Highly recommend a visit as soon as you can. Having the outside space is just amazing on a fine summers day. A great find :-)
Nice and cozy brasserie, friendly staff and good food, love it! Definitely go back again and definitely recommended. Make sure you book a table as it’s very busy especially at the weekends.
