In the heart of the cheerful and community orientated Kentish Town (just 15 minutes’ walk from Camden Market) is Flapjacks Café, a social enterprise run by The Camden Society. The café serves up a delicious selection of cooked breakfasts, sweet treats and healthy snacks. Tip: try the tea and a homemade lavender cookie for just £2.50.
Flapjacks is staffed by people with a range of physical and mental disabilities, who clearly take a lot of pride in their work. The café also offers a gallery space for local artists to exhibit their work throughout the year. I have personally witnessed the kindness of the people who work here, watching them take out hot drinks to the homeless during the cold winter months.
