Megan’s, Islington

Megan’s was on my radar just before the lockdown came.

It is a set of trendy and proudly dog-friendly restaurants.

Today I visited the Islington branch, whose proper name is Megan’s at the Sorting Office.

Islington is full of lovely little cafes, boutiques and interior design shops.

I went on a Monday morning when it would be quiet, so there was plenty of room in Megan’s and I took a nice table for myself.

I had planned to order my normal coffee but once I was there and browsed the menu which is full of lovely brunches such as Baked Eggs, I thought I’d at least order a croissant.

I had a couple of bites but regretted letting myself be even that indulgent and felt I should have ordered like the lady sitting behind me a black Americano and a green juice!

I was very happy with my Skinny Cappuccino – very hot even though I had not specified Extra Hot as I often have to order in places, and came with chocolate on top.

There is a relaxed vibe and good service throughout.

As you can see from the pictures the décor is really special.

There are cute little sofas for the dogs, who are definitely a key part of the atmosphere.

Nearby there were some ladies in floral dresses having a breakfast meeting – like an American film version of London!

I would definitely recommend this place for a coffee catch-up and I’m sure in the busy times the atmosphere is buzzing.

I hope to try their Espresso Martini one evening.
