Highness Café and Tea Room
Cafe, Tea Room, Tea , British, Vegetarian
Highness Café is one of Islington’s many little gems, with a warm, cosy interior a world away from bustling Highbury Park outside. The tea room gives off a simple, rustic atmosphere, with a particularly lovely upstairs seating area full of mismatched wooden chairs and dimly lit lamps, tucked away at the top of a spiral staircase. The selection of freshly baked cakes is impressive; with a large selection of Christmas treats on offer during the winter months such as mince pies, stollen and a pear and cinnamon cake. The selection of loose leaf teas is also good, offering a number of classics alongside some more unusual concoctions, such as orange peel and pomegranate and there are plenty of coffees available for non-tea drinkers too.
