REVIEW: Café Loren, Camden

WHAT: A peaceful hidey-hole serving excellent coffee and fresh Israeli dishes, bang in the middle of crazy Camden.

WHY GO? The beating heart of Camden’s bustling market is something everyone has to experience – and boy, they try, with thousands of tourists and workers descending upon the area every day in search of nose piercings, green hair dye, gig tickets, Nu-Rock boots and everything in between.

All that stomping demands somewhere quiet to sit down, and Cafe Loren is the perfect hideaway – tucked away under the bridge, it has a cosy seating area, friendly staff and potent Israeli coffee to restore and revive you.

If you’re hungry, skip the market stalls and sample Café Loren’s Shakshuka selection. This egg-based dish is at the apex of breakfast-for-dinner recipes; freshly-baked bread mops up the green (pesto) or red (tomato) sauce spiced with cumin, garlic, peppers, hummus and onion.

There’s a great tea selection, plus rainbow bagels and cupcakes.

HOW MUCH: Shakshuka stars from £8.50.

WHERE? Unit 005-006 Stables Market, The Stables Market, Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AH
