Boyden’s Kitchen has just won Grazia best local deli and I’m not surprised at all. This cafe (not a greasy spoon) in Friern Barnet is just around the corner from my parents and last weekend, my cousin arranged for my aunts, mum and us to have brunch there.
Boyden’s Kitchen is a family business, made up of new mum Anna, Ben the chef and baby Finley. It’s a great place to take a baby as well – spacious and not packed out at all! Ben even came over to meet little baby Reya. The Kitchen prides itself on really good quality, well sourced produce at reasonable prices with a clear love for food.
And the food really was very good – we have the veggie breakfast, veggie burrito and creamed mushrooms on sourdough toast with wilted spinach and poached egg. I deviated from my normal choice of French Bread and chose the latter dish – as can be seen in the pic (taken by Meera Shah) below….one of the best brunch dishes around! It was spurned my love for sourdough bread – I must remember to buy a loaf from there next time!
We did finish up by sharing pancakes with maple syrup, strawberries and blueberries! Boyden’s is a great place to have breakfast, a cafe that’s just right for a lazy morning with family or friends.
