Lovely spot for brunch/lunch. The Elk in the Woods has a fantastic brunch menu as well as some delicious small plates which are perfect for sharing for lunch. Sitting outside in Camden Passage is glorious for summer whilst the interior is perfectly cozy for winter

Food is amazingly good with a lot of flavors. Staff is nice and friendly. The wait is a bit long but the taste of the food makes you forget it pretty quickly. The decoration and atmosphere are unique. Very cosy and calm!

I came here as a group of 11 for an evening meal on a Friday. It's not a huge place so I recommend booking. It's in a gorgeous little alleyway in Islington with some quirky shops. We were put on a long table in the...More
