About Sawyer and Gray

Sawyer and Gray might look like a humble cafe on St Pauls Road in Islington but it’s actually steeped in history and heritage that’s served up alongside its carefully considered breakfast, lunches and brunches. Named after the very building it’s based in which has stood on the site since the 1940s, renovation works on the building unveiled the Sawyer and Gray logo which was designed by the same typographer who did the London Underground. Bringing things back to the present, the current cafe has crafted a thoroughly modern menu that boasts an array of coffeeshop staples done to exacting standards as well as its own singular takes on everything from filling brunch bowls to tortillas and sourdough open sandwiches.

Really great atmosphere, our food was excellent. It was easy to book a table & we actually got free dessert from the cook. The coffee is really tasty, if you want to enjoy a late Sunday brunch, that's the place to be.

Have gone here several times this year and food is excellent but staff consistently provide poor service, particularly when the owner managers are serving. My suggestion would be to get professional wait staff, because it has been poor so many times we have decided to go else where for our weekly brunch.

Food was great, place was warm and cosy. It's got plenty of tables but it was a tight squeeze. Service could be better as the waitress was very abrupt on all occasions when at our table.

So glad I stumbled across this place - looks small from the outside but has a great space downstairs, comfortable, without being cramped. Was packed out as it was Saturday but the service was quick and friendly and the brunch was delicious and well priced.
