A very friendly family run cafe serving up the normal fare as well as some really lovely  mediterranean dishes.

Go for the Piri Piri Chicken served on a bed of cracked wheat and a beautifully shaved salad…  All for under a fiver.

They even opened the alley at the side of the cafe so we could stash our bikes. A truly cycle friendly service.



Pedro'sCricklewood Broadway and Oaklands Road NW2 – A classic, much improved by the smoking ban of a few years ago. Pedro’s has some of the largest portions in London and has recently benefited from the influx of Poles in the area for the building trade.

Bigos - Hunters Stew

Try “Bigos” – Hunters stew or some fantastic meat stuffed dumplings at about the £5 mark.  Massive!

Stuffed Dumplings

A very friendly service too, “Everything better from Poland dharrling!”


Always a haunt for the local characters so lunch can be eventful.

Bike parking is a breeze with plenty of highly visible railing and posts outside.
