Common Ground

Islington | Cafe

We know we are doggie royalty but sometimes even we have to join the queue but some places are just worth it and Common Ground is one of them.
This place is so popular, they have people queuing for their brunches all weekend and now we know why.
The menu is no meat or fish and every dish is fresh and mouth-wateringly delicious. The banana bread (served warm) is an absolute must try.
Four legged foodies are welcome throughout and will be given treats and water plus the beautiful Finsbury Park is round the corner. Just don’t go on Arsenal home match days if you don’t like crowds or need somewhere to park!

Unfortunately it's only their courtyard and bar that are dog-friendly, the restaurant isn't.
