About
Right in the middle of N16’s leafy Church Street + a short stroll from Clissold Park, The Good Egg + its vibrant Tel Aviv-inspired brunch + dinner menus are a north London favourite. The menus here cater very well to both meat eaters + veggie/vegan diners alike; If you’re coming for brunch, it’s walk-in only; when you visit for dinner, don't leave without trying their famous za'atar fried chicken, the marinated aubergine + the orange + juniper-braised octopus. Other all-time faves include the labneh, the whipped green feta, + Al's house pickles. Central to the restaurant's cosy Tel Aviv vibe is the long open kitchen bar, where guests can enjoy the theatre of the chefs at work unless they’d prefer

What an interesting menu! We visited the restaurant last night having seen it listed on a blog of cool restaurants in Stoke Newington, and really enjoyed the experience. The menu is quite unusual with some wierd and wonderful options for sharing, and it was all...More

Visited recently with a family party, including a toddler. My daughter and her husband have recently moved into the area and are frequent customers, that means something as they are very discerning. The food was great, I opted for the egg and cheese bagel which...More

Upon recommendation by my sister-in-law we had lunch at The Good Egg on our last trip into Londontown, which was well worth it! I had the Shaksuka which I found was best enjoyed by tearing up the bread and leaving it to absorb as much...More

Every time we've been to the good egg, the food has been fantastic. My favorite is brunch, the baked eggs are really good! Quite a small restaurant so make sure that you book to get a table as queues are common!

I was with my family and by chance we decided to dine at the good egg for breakfast. I personally hated the food. Shalshuka was not good. Just didn't enjoy it and way too expensive. Never again!

I can’t to the Good Egg for my birthday brunch. It did not disappoint, food and service totally on point! I was really happy that they even allowed my little dog to come. What a great addition to Church Street. Lovely, lovely, lovely!
