A therapist is playing word association with a client. “Highbury”, she says. The patient, eyes closed, smiles and begins to speak softly, “Comte”. “Riesling”. “Addison Lee”. He takes a deep breath before exhaling...”La Fromagerie”. This place is at the heart of the area Highbury is today, having set up shop over 25 years ago. Predominantly a cheesemonger, there’s also a small cafe that serves breakfast, small plates, charcuterie, and cheese boards, obviously. It’s ideal for wine, snacks, a catch-up. And something very nice to take home.
