Shakshuka for the soul
at Café Loren, Camden Market

Cafe Loren

If you have never had Shakshuka and have no immediate plans to fly to Tel Aviv, get yourself down to Café Loren in Camden Market immediately.

Like now.

Why have you not left yet?

Every dish of shakshuka is served in the same dish in which it was baked in the oven, with plenty of warm, fresh pitta bread to mop up every drop of delicious sauce…

Shakshuka is pretty much synonymous with brekky in the Middle East, although you can eat it at any time you fancy.  It is essentially eggs baked in tomato, spices, chilli and onions, with unlimited variations… I chose to have some feta on top, while my dining companion Julia, opted for a green shakshuka, with spinach, leek, green peppers, coriander and pesto…

Café Loren is tucked away within The Stables at Camden Market, with a relaxed vibe, loads of soft natural light and is a little calm oasis within the bizzy buzzy market in the heart of Camden… It’s the perfect place to meet friends for a catch up over a delicious meal, or just hole up with a book and some of their delicious coffee and watch the world go by…

There is a lovely inside space too…

We devoured our shakshukas, hatched all kinds of blogging plans and then went for a stroll around Camden Market, where we stumbled across this beautiful wall…

Next week we’re expecting a bit of heatwave here in London, so if you’re looking for a shady spot amongst the humdrum of Camden, head to Café Loren for shakshuka, coffee, fresh juice and a beautiful Israeli welcome.

Perfect.

We were guests of Café Loren, but as always, thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. Perfect tip! I have taken some time off next week as my friend is coming to visit me, and I think this might be a perfect thing to do with her! I’ve heard so many good things about shakshuka but for some bizarre reason have never tried it. This one looks just heavenly…
