In Highbury, nestled in the suburban townhouses, the is a very small cafe called Finks Salt and Sweet that I would absolutely recommend. In the summer there are little tables outside so you can sit out in the sunshine.
They do a great cup of coffee and they have a simple fresh menu and are so well priced.
I ordered the avocado, rose harissa and goats cheese on sour dough toast £5 and I asked for some smoked salmon £1.50 to go on top. I was surprised how well the harissa went with the avocado and added an element of Mediterranean spice to it but still had a freshness to it. It definitely kept me full for ages and tasted amazing!
As I have realised my obsession with mashed avocado on toast, to end to end this post I have written:
An Ode to Avocado on Toast
You are bright and beautifully coloured,
You are healthy and so super great,
You taste fresh and fill me up,
And you look perfect on a plate.
When you are smashed,
When you are mushed,
And you are bashed,
You are absolutely wonderful to me.
