I’m not a vegetarian but sometimes I like to take a break from mainlining sausage patties like it’s my job. The vegetarian breakfast at The Haberdashery came highly recommended by a friend (also not a veggie). I love that they don’t push veggie sausage on you – which usually tastes like a rubberised tube steak. It’s a well-balanced portion of grilled halloumi, tomato, toast, a bit of spinach and a totally delicious round hash brown patty. We went to the Stoke Newington location which is just off Church Street, there is also one in Crouch End. The decor is charming – like your loopy grandma who can’t be bothered to tidy or throw away chipped dishes. On a Sunday at 12, two of us just walked right in and only waited a few minutes. Not bad for high-traffic brunch time. Next time I’ll try the French Toast with grilled cinnamon-y banana and maple syrup. Mmm. UPDATE: As of January 22nd, 2015, the Stoke Newington location of The Haberdashery is now open for supper Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.
