Delicia left Fortis Green road recently and I was intrigued to know who would take their place…
…And here they are. Knidos. A Turkish named café, opened by a Turkish Husband & Wife just 3 days ago.
Knidos sells breakfasts, lunches, ‘little dishes’, coffee and cakes :) ...the menu speckled with Turkish influence, but also some staples for those wanting a traditional fry up or burger.
They are open until 8pm, with an accompanying evening menu, and are happy for you to bring your own booze (although you'll have to serve yourself).
Knidos is close to my little dudes nursery, so I popped in before his pick-up, ordering (yep you guessed it) a Cappuccino. Plus a sneaky bit of (delicious) Carrot Cake and later a refreshing homemade lemonade... with a funky straw (my NCT friends will know how excited I get about a straw)!!
The place doesn’t feel much like the old space. They’ve kept the same orientation, but have a ‘café bar’ in the first room and an area, with more of a restaurant feel, around the back.
The atmosphere is pretty chilled, feeling like a step back from the mild bustle of Muswell Hill. Which I enjoyed… mainly as a break from chasing my little crawling piccolo.
The people that work here are lovely - they are all very welcoming and friendly - I had the added pleasure of meeting the super nice Mr & Mrs Knidos :)
I felt very comfortable as I sat, worked and sipped on my daily dose of caffeine... I look forward to an evening meal here with my family trio.
