I have a confession. I’m addicted to avocado toast. I literally just love it so much. I have it everyday for breakfast without fail and Fink’s Salt and Sweet is the perfect place for me to get my avocado fix.
It’s an unassuming little place and is just a short stroll from Finsbury Park station. Scott and I arrived on early last Saturday and the place was already filling up quite nicely. We scored a perfect little spot by the window.
The place itself is rather small and has space for around 35 people. The interior is gorgeous and welcoming, and they use beautiful turquoise crockery (I’d love to buy a set when I finally have my own place!)
Their weekend menu is my kind of menu – it’s got alot of unusual combinations you don’t really see elsewhere, quality ingredients, affordable prices and no greasy fry ups. Of course, I opted for the avocado toast. There’s harissa spread on the toast which comes fresh from Balthazar, there’s a generous serving of avocado and then there’s a thick slice of chevre on each slice. It’s so perfect I’ve tried to remake it at home, and at £5 it’s crazy good value.
Scott went for the Wiltshire ham and Snowdonian cheddar and apple butter on English muffins – from what I can gather it was delicious as he wolfed in down before I even got the chance to get my camera out.
I’ve heard people rave about their salmon board which comes with smoked salmon, salmon pate, beetroot, crackers, seaweed and goats curd – not your standard brunch option but I can’t wait to go back and try it.
