We spoke to Kirstie, one of the sisters who own and run this fantastic local cafe in the centre of Crouch End...

Q: What makes Crouch End unique?

A: Crouch End has a unique identity, a village in the heart of North London.

Q: Why did you open up in Crouch End?

A: It is a thriving local high street and we really wanted to work in the area. Crouch Enders use their local shops and support all the small independents.

Q: When was that?
A: 2007

Q: What’s your favourite dish/food on your menu.

A: The Hot Pepper Jelly Inferno Sandwich; peanut butter, crispy bacon and chilli jam so spicy your teeth will burn. It’s addictive.

Q: Tell us one thing we don't know about Hot Pepper Jelly

A: We are running a book swap, come and browse our bookshelf and try an author you might never have considered before.

Q: Do you have a favourite bar/pub in N8?

A: Our favourites include Kiss the Sky, the Queen’s, the Railway Tavern and Villiers. Maybe we drink too much.

Q: What about a restaurant?

A: We love Banners, and Lupa does the best pizza we ever had.

Q: Favourite Coffee/café?
A: That’s easy, Hot Pepper Jelly! All our coffee is fair trade and prepared by our fully trained baristas.

Q: Do you have a favourite shop here?
A: Spirited Wines ha ha, Sherriff and the RSPCA charity shop.

Q: Where would you take someone visiting Crouch End from out of town?
A: Alexandra Palace for the amazing view, the King’s Head Comedy night, Kiss the Sky for some late drinks and then Hot Pepper Jelly for a Black Pudding Stack, the best hangover breakfast.

Q: What’s the best kept foodie secret in N8?

A: Our new Hot Pepper Jelly Jam is going to be launched October 17th as part of the Crouch End Digital Food Festival. You’re all invited to join us between 6 – 9pm for a tasting session with complimentary wine. I promise, it’s going to be the napalm of chilli jam.
