My sister Rose and I love exploring new places, and surprisingly enough we have never been to Crouch End before, despite it only being a short bus ride away from where I live. I can safely say its worth a visit. It’s a lovely part of London with traditional high street shops such as bakers, butchers/ fishmongers and grocers which adds an authentic feel to it. We were blessed with a beautiful October day, with clear skies and a slight chill in the air and it was only a short trip on the W7 to get there. When we arrived, the first place we stumbled across was a beautiful little bakery with a Halloween display, as you can see Rose is really enjoying the pumpkin cupcakes.
After venturing into a couple of charity shops we decided to stop for brunch at a beautiful French Patisserie called Sable D’or.
I’ve heard about Sable D’or before but I’ve never been in. I’m so glad I did because its a really amazing place for brunch, I can’t recommend it enough. With a modern and stylish interior, it gives off cosy and spacious vibes simultaneously. I find lighting so important when eating out, and the skylights in the Crouch End Sable D’or definietly create a bright enviroment.
With the various dietary requirements I now have (no yeast, sugar and dairy), I really struggled finding something I could eat. They unfortunately didn’t have any yeast free bread so I settled with the Butternut Squash salad with chickpeas, garlic dressing, mixed nuts, cumin and coriander.
It was so tasty and so healthy and I wasn’t even bitter about not being able to have the avocado on toast.
Rose had a flat white and the NICEST looking pain au chocolate. It was the perfect brunch spot. The service was quick and well presented which made the whole experience completely enjoyable.
Surprisingly cheap, Sable D’or is the perfect spot a spot of breakfast or brunch. It tastes as good as it looks and is aesthetic enough for instagram (obvs very important). I’m already looking forward to going again.
