Good Vegetarian Options
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 to relax away from the action at a table. During the summer months, guests can also dine al fresco out on the front terrace until 9 pm. Stunning seasonal house cocktails, craft beers, natural wines + artisanal coffees, pastries + desserts are available all day too. Great for special occasions

Unfortunately the restaurant cancelled our reservation with half an hour's notice so we had to find a different place for dinner.

Hi RobertB, I'm so sorry we had to cancel your table with us. We had an emergency which meant we couldn't serve food for a time. I understand your disappointment. It would be great to discuss so I can explain further as we'd love to see you again soon! Please drop me an email at Naomi@thegoodegg.co when you have time. Kindest regards, Naomi

Great place, firm neighbourhood favourite, the staff is always chill and nice and don’t make you feel like you need to leave. The food is delicious and always changing so you keep on discovering new flavours. However thank god they keep the ZFC on the menu. That on is the best fried chicken in the world!

Hi Bibilaluvfood, We couldn't agree more about the ZFC! Thank you for your kind words! Looking forward to seeing you again soon, Shelley

Another beautiful meal- this time tried the set menu- there was more food than we thought and couldn't finish it- everything was perfect. My sister was visiting from NZ and we all had lovely night- again I was the last table there and staff did not rush us or try to get us out- so thank you.

Also got a nice little surprise from the waitress as it was my birthday- a dessert to take home ;-)

I would happily live on Good Egg's corn bread with honey butter...Server made some good suggestions of dishes and wine was 40% off........Only downside was the terrible acoustics. The four of us had to shout at each other to be heard........

Gorgeous fresh food with character. Their pitta and bread is to die for! I suppose my only small criticism is on the size of each dish (could be a little bigger given the price...!) But, overall, a brilliant experience. Thank you.

Myself and my two friends had a lovely meal. We had the 'It is what it is' menu - which is the chef's selection. Everything we had was really yummy, and there was plenty of food. Our only complaint was that a number of things on the menu weren't available - including the sourdough bread, and, more importantly for us - the fizz that came with the menu we chose. We were offered wine instead, which was nice, but a little less fun and special. Overall we had a great time, and would definitely come back.

Great service, very friendly staff, fantastic food; we came here for an anniversary meal as we were staying nearby for the weekend - very buzzy, lots of interesting plates to choose from - the roast cauliflower was wonderful! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it
