If you love picturesque, colourful food, you have to go and check out Starfish Loves Coffee. As they serve some of the most wonderful food in town.
Last week, I had an invitation to review this spot with a +1 after seeing their Instagram page. I certainly could not turn this offer down, located in North London’s ‘Palmer’s Green’. The first thing we noticed was the pink chairs outdoors, which stood from a distance and felt would be the perfect spot in the summertime to take photos whilst dining.
As we walked inside we were welcomed by the staff member, who told us to sit wherever we wanted to. We both had a look at the menu for 5 minutes and decided to order our drinks first. You can have a look for yourself as I took a picture of the all-day brunch menu below.
These were Beetroot Latte and Matcha Latte. I’ve always enjoyed and usually ordered Matcha Latte wherever cafe I go to. However, this time I did prefer the beetroot Latte compared to the Matcha as it tasted better.
Main Food + Interiors
Whilst we ordered and waited for our drinks. We had some time to decide on what to eat for our main course before the waiter returned. So, after waiting up to 5-10 minutes, we were ready to order our food by the time the drinks had arrived at our table. The waiting time at Starfish Loves Coffee wasn’t too long luckily enough as we headed towards closing time. However, that did not stop me from taking lots of photos and filming the interiors inside as it looked so lovely.
The food items we ordered were three dishes:
- Creole Chicken Waffle (Halal) £10.50
- Asian Avocado £8.50 + Halloumi £2.50
- Ramen £10.50
- Matcha Latte
- Beetroot Latte
Asian Avocado (VE)
Once our food arrived, it was time for the eyes to eat first, where I tried to capture many perfect shots from my camera. Before we indulged in these yummy colourful dishes. The first to arrive at the table was the Asian Avo with Halloumi. This tasted so good, which went down as a favourite for the both of us. It was basically a ripe avocado, with edamame beans, rainbow radishes, Japanese black rice and Yuzu dressing on charcoal sourdough.
Creole Chicken Waffle
I would recommend the avocado dish if you visit. One thing I was looking for was a berry waffle but I could not see it on the list. Therefore I decided to opt for the halal chicken waffle, which looked quite appetising too. The chicken was like homemade fried chicken crispy buttermilk chicken on a sweet waffle along with plantain, slaw, smothered with a creole sweet maple syrup making it extra sweet taste.
The final choice from a wonderful afternoon here at Starfish was ‘Ramen’. This was my Mrs.’s choice as I was not too keen on it. As I had tried the Ramen elsewhere in Covent Garden and I was not a fan of it, but I gave it a try. It was made with Miso and Shitake Mushroom Broth, a soft boiled egg was included, udon noodles, enoki mushrooms, pak choi, edamame beans, fresh chilli and sesame seeds. As nice as it looked we were not able to finish this dish by ourselves as we both preferred the other two options I picked.
Breakfast is closed from 12pm, so you are left with all day brunch menu, just a heads up. However, that shouldn’t stop you from trying all kinds of delicious items. I felt the food was delicious, especially the ‘Asian Avocado’ that was super yummy. The service here was good as we were asked to sit wherever we liked and were able to move around when needed. Pricing wise, think you would be more than satisfied with the portion you receive.
The experience was a fun and enjoyable one, as me and the Mrs enjoyed a good time together before heading off to Camden Town for a bit of shopping/sight-seeing. I thought the presentation was fabulous as the plates were beautifully used and the outcome of the food was spot on for me. Finally, the atmosphere was calm and not many people around as it was a weekday. Saying that they were a range of older and younger generations of groups chatting away, which was nice to see.
Food: 8 out of 10
Service: 9 out of 10
Price: 8 out of 10
Experience: 10 out of 10
Presentation: 10 out of 10
Overall: I would give this cafe a 9 out of 10.
