This may as well be a Church Street guide as that’s where most of what I love to do in Stokey is! It’s great for eating, shopping and everything in between. Let me talk you through my favourite spots…
The Last Crumb is a cafe that offers all-day brunch. It has nice seats outside if it isn’t too cold which is where I like to sit so Pops can sit underneath and I can watch the world go by. You have the option to sit inside or outside and they also have a co-working space at the bottom where you can grab a hot desk for the day. The Good Egg is just up the road too, which is great for brunch and runs through to dinner.
I’m finding gorgeous doors everywhere at the moment and this one is no exception. I love the colour too!
You’ll find Abney Park Cemetery across the road which offers a nice bit of greenery and a great place for a dog walk. Stokey is also home to Clissold Park and its mini-zoo where you’ll find rabbits, chickens, goats and deer, so it’s perfect for little ones.
If I’ve still got room after lunch (and if not, I can always find some!), I grab a cupcake from Ooh Lou Lou Bakery. They have a delicious selection of traditional and new flavour combinations that are never too sweet.
The sweet treats continue down Church Street – Slab & Tipple make and package all their own chocolate so when I do buy something from them, it always feels extra special.
I’m on the hunt for homeware and interior inspiration at the moment and Search & Rescue is full of loads of lovely bits. I fell in love with a pale pink ceramic serving bowl the other day from here and I might just have to go back for it.
Nook is another homeware shop I love on Church Street. It’s full of everything you want and didn’t know you need! I love their selection of wrapping paper and gift cards too.
And lastly, Botanique which sits just opposite Nook and is one of my favourite flower shops in London. It’s the perfect place to pick up plants and pots.
