Coffee Shop
“On a sunny day, there is no better place (possibly in the world) than Towpath Café. Just hope it's not the weekend as you won't be the only one with this idea in mind. A small little nook with outdoor seating right on the bank of the Regents Canal, Towpath was founded by American food writer, Lori di Mori, who spent many years in Florence and the Tuscan countryside, only to land in London and create this perfect little haven for food and coffee lovers. Make sure to try and grab the first seat you find as they go quick and then get a friend to queue at the bar to place your order.”
