Towpath Café is a rare and precious treasure of a place that is loved by so many. My own long-standing love affair with Towpath started pretty much the moment I moved to London in the summer of 2016 while strolling along Regent’s canal - I was totally sucked in by the magic, and the divine food, and I’ve been visiting this gem religiously ever since.
They’ve been open for ten years and to mark the occasion, the owners, Lori De Mori and Laura Jackson have published their book Towpath - recipes and stories.
Another piece of good news out of this wild year - usually, each November these four Towpath bunker doors close, bidding us farewell for the winter. And then just when you’re in need of a summer lifeline, they roll up in March, signifying spring, new beginnings, and the promise of good things to come. And now for the first time ever, Towpath is going to be open for the winter - you can bundle up and go for breakfast and lunch and they’re now also doing reservations for dinner.
You can find out all about that, and order their beautiful book, on their website - https://www.towpathlondon.com/
Towpath is so much more than a place to go and eat. It’s a part of the reason London came to feel like home for me. And I know many others feel the same.
It was an honour to be able to sit down with Lori and Laura and talk about the book and the whole Towpath journey and how they’ve created this piece of magic on a tiny stretch of Regent’s canal.
I hope you enjoy!
