The Yard Cafe

This week I decided to mix it up a little and meander towards the other side of Alexandra Palace.

After a stroll over the railway bridge (which my son will love in a few years) and the super cute old rail workers cottages, we ended up at The Yard Cafe in the entrance of the train station.

I found a little table to read my book and sip on a coffee...

... It's a small cafe with only 2 tables (1 long and 1 small), designed more for takeout I'd imagine, but it was like a little haven outside of commuter hours. I sat for a good couple of hours and felt really comfortable and relaxed, made even more so with a nice chocolate brownie :)

They also do juices, yummy looking lunches and flowers (although there weren't any of my visit sadly).

I will be returning for more chocolate and coffee quiet time :)
