Darjeeling, Bills cafe
Huge Pot Of Darjeeling
the Angel

Bill’s cafe and grocery store was established in Lewes, East Sussex in 2001, and has branches in London and the South East.
This spacious emporium at the Angel, Islington is colourful, with a vibrant atmosphere, brightening up this non-descript side street.

I was most impressed by my enormous blue enamel teapot of Darjeeling, at £1.85 a real bargain. So, if like me, you can quaff tea by the pint, then this is the place for you. Made with two teabags of Twinings, it was very good indeed.

Bill’s has a groovy grocer-deli laid back vibe. There are some delicious sounding cakes and the food menu looks good. Open from breakfast till dinner, seven days a week, it can get very busy, so avoid mealtimes if in need of a quiet cuppa with a newspaper.

You can also shop while you take tea. I bought a white enamel teapot for a tenner and some Brewhaha decaff tea. Oils, jams, pesto, biscuits, big bottles of pink lemonade, wine, tins of pulses, massive balls of string and er..raffia are also on offer.

There are nice touches, fresh flowers on table, and the outside terrace is lovely, if not much of a view.

A great place to pop in when frazzled from shopping in Islington.
