Bill's IslingtonCombining an old-fashioned grocer with an appealing delicatessen and an informal café serving a British and Mediterranean-influenced menu, Bill's now boasts numerous London and nationwide locations. The café is a great option, whether you're after an early breakfast, a lazy late brunch, a quick lunch, an afternoon coffee or a more substantial dinner (there's a fully licensed bar, to boot). The walls are adorned with shelves stacked with produce; bunches of chillies hang from above; appealing menus are propped up all over the place on blackboards; staff are down-to-earth and attentive. Breakfast is served till noon, but the choice is so huge you're bound to find something that appeals if you arrive any later.
