Before going to listen to Sam Jordan and the Dirty Harrys at Proud Camden on Wednesday, Natalie and I met at My Village Cafe, a quaint Greek and Mediterranean vegetarian/vegan cafe in the heart of Camden Town across the road from the Stables. And what a charming and delightful find!
The cafe also serves as a deli offering authentic dishes and sides for eat in or take away. I sat down at one of these inviting tables and the kind and charming man at the counter offered myself and another newcomer two complimentary drinks and a sample of their "My Grandma Soup" which was delicious especially on a chilly night.
Ordering a portion of the soup for my dinner, I could not even eat it all it was so filling AND DELICIOUS. It was perfectly paired with a mug of hot green tea that the man behind the counter offered the refill but again it was such a large portion that no refill was necessary but I appreciate their desire to serve and please. I do believe he might have offered me his sweater if I was cold.
I definitely would recommend any vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike to pay My Village Cafe a visit if you're in the Camden Town/Chalk Farm neighbourhood. You'll have a hearty meal, charming ambiance and fabulous/friendly service.
One note of warning - they do not accept cards for anything under £10 so cash is recommended especially if you are paying individually.
Also, according to Natalie this cafe makes for a great study place and was where she spent countless hours pouring over her own dissertation.
