Kalandar: Nice cafe on a busy street
I have visited here a number of times but only for drinks and so cannot comment on the food but it does look very good.
The café is open all day from breakfast until late and has seating inside and out - I did notice people were smoking recently in the outside section and this is illegal and should be stopped.
The café is clean and well presented and the one toilet was acceptable.
The staff are friendly and efficient and prices about normal for the area but if like me you are not from London - expensive.
Although I have never seen anyone famous here I did read Paloma Faith and Noel Fielding eat here on a regular basis.
Favorite Dish: I intend to eat here on my next visit to Highgate.
Angel Inn: Foody pub
This is a 1930s pub which has changed interior lately but in a very nice way. It is airy, but still gets crowded weekend nights when it can get quite noisy. We came on a quiet Easter Saturday and had a fabulous meal and great pints. As the pub is in the middle of wonderfully intellectual but expensive Highgate, the pub aims to please those two categories as well as everyone else and we think it manages very well. Staff are friendly and the team of chefs in the open view kitchen come up with great homemade shepherd's pie and other things both British and foreign. There is a mix of Belgian and other foreign beers on tap as well as a few from the south of England and if you want standard lager you have to buy bottles - great! :) Good place for when tackling Highgate Cemetary.
Favorite Dish: Moroccan chicken salad with salsa and spinach and basil.
