Welcome to the Blighty UK Cafe.
Situated in Finsbury Park we are the founding cafe of the Blighty Commonwealth of Cafes.


Opened in 2013, the Blighty UK Cafe is the founding cafe of the Blighty commonwealth of cafes. We set out to create a commonwealth of 52 cafes offering delicious food, great coffee and creative collaboration. It seemed appropriate that our first Blighty Cafe should represent our home nation – The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Blighty UK Cafe was born.

A warm welcome awaits those seeking that all-important early morning coffee, tasty brunch and lunch, outdoor seating, informal meeting spaces, life drawing classes, yoga lessons, table tennis and so much more.

Our signature dish is the full English breakfast, and we have carefully created three variants to suit all diets: The Winston (recently voted the best full English in the UK!) is our traditional full English breakfast, The Clementine is our vegetarian option, and The Gandhi is the only vegan full English breakfast we know of. All variants can be made gluten free. We try and source all our ingredients from commonwealth countries wherever possible.

We are serious about coffee. We source our beans from Commonwealth countries – Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya, India, Tanzania, Papua New Guinea and Malawi and roast them ourselves to ensure we are serving the highest quality drink possible. We like to keep things fresh, and keep our coffee beans on rotation. Ask our baristas about the coffee we are serving at the moment, buy some of our hand-roasted beans to take home, or try a taster of our irresistible filter coffee.

Upstairs from our cafe you will find co-working offices for diverse creatives of North London, as well as the head office of our charity, Blighty Arts.

We look forward to welcoming you!
