Fortess Cafe, N19
117 days. 7 months.
…That’s how long it has been since your darling breakfast-gobbling maniac Eggsley has put metaphorical pen to paper and scribbled something wonderful about food most foul.
It is time, I have decided, to put an end to this inactivity. Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Eggsley is back, and he went straight back to Fortess Road to sample the delights of the originally named Fortess Cafe.
Moonlight Cafe, N19
As the rain tumbles down upon the roads of Tufnell Park on this July morning, Eggsley and Lurvensteen venture out to Moonlight Cafe, perhaps the best cafe on Brecknock Road (suggestions welcome).
The decor is welcomingly uninspiring, with a wall-mounted television quietly mumbling nonsense in the background, adding some texture to the repugnant sound of feeding human beings. The owners are polite and very speedy, with a warm, welcoming smile that your humble misanthrope looks forward to before gorging on greasy, belly-busting, heart attack-inducing grub.
