Bob On... London: Workers Cafe, Upper Street
Upper Street in Islington is a trendy, happening place. And you can easily end up paying trendy, happening (i.e. expensive) prices.
So the Workers Cafe is a little oasis.
The menu is a mix of traditional Breakfast fayre, Pizzas and Pasta dishes, plus Burgers. Fish dishes are also on the menu, from traditional Cod and Chips to Sea Bass. A range of specials are served each day - see the board for details.
Prices are reasonable: I had an All Day Breakfast and a beer, my wife had a Penne Carbonara and a coffee. We followed this with a Millionaire's Shortbread and a Chocolate Brownie. It came to £22 (January 2016 prices).
The portions were generous and tasty, service was fast and friendly.
Will definitely eat there again when in the area. Recommended.
