A seasonal café for seasoned table grabbers is what Towpath is, but if you come here on a sunny day and nab a seat (alongside a plate of tomatoes on toast) you’ll soon see why it’s so busy. This mini-spot along the Regent’s Canal near Haggerston station is pretty much entirely outside seating and it has a strong case for being one of London’s most dopamine-inducing restaurants. Tomatoes, fried eggs with mojo verde, and Spanish sausage sandwiches are all favourites. If possible, come for a midweek, day-off meal, because things can get a little tactical during weekend brunch hours. That said, it’s worth it.
