The Green Room Café is cozy eatery nestled in the rear of Flowers N16, a family run florist on Church Street in Stoke Newington. The shop, covered in colourful displays of flowers and rustic artworks, is run by Errol and Oya, who have years of experience in the florist industry. From small gatherings to large weddings, Flowers N16 provides floral arrangement to suite special occasions of any shape or size.
The rear of the florist lodges a large space that used to hold a garden centre. It wasn’t until 18 months ago that the idea to open a café in the space took hold, and the area has been home to The Green Room Café ever since. In the past few months the café has undergone some improvements, including a change in management, new chefs and new baristas. The Trezoro team was lucky enough to talk to Justin, the cafes new manager and he discussed with us what they’ve been up to since the adjustment.
Justin described the café as cozy, laid back and colourful – and we can confirm. From the friendly barista who greeted us upon arrival to the vast availability of seating, we immediately felt welcomed into the warm and rustic space. Green Room offers the perfect indoor spot to keep snug on a chilly day or a beautiful outdoor garden to enjoy sunshine and milder temperatures. The pleasant space is even available for bookings and is often reserved for events like weddings, baby showers and other private parties.
So what’s on the menu? Green Room has selections in categories across the board- brunch, pancakes, sandwiches, large and small plates, and of course your assortment of hot and cold drinks. Justin highlighted a few of his favourites as well as some café best sellers. For a brunch item try the wild mushrooms on sourdough toast topped with a poached hen’s egg or indulge for supper on the Pumpkin and Rosemary Risotto made with pecorino cheese. Looking for something filling? We bet you’ll find satisfaction in the scotch rib eye steak & chimichurri sandwich.
Flowers N16 and Green Room are gearing up for Christmas, so keep your eyes open for holiday events coming up at the shop!
