Crouch End's The Haberdashery has re-opened today under new management, with all food half price for the first week.

The cafe closed in August after almost 12 years in Middle Lane when co-founder Greg Vukasovic announced he would be moving to Glasgow.

This much-loved eatery has opened its doors once again this morning - November 12 - under the new ownership of brothers Erhan and Baran Gorgu and their wives.

Erhan told the Ham&High: "My wife was a fashion designer and now she works as a nutritionist, so The Haberdashery was a great match for us.

"We'll be serving healthy lunches and salads, joining together our love of tailoring and a healthy lifestyle."

Chef Alina already knows the ropes, having worked at the cafe for the past three years, with Erhan calling her a "super positive and lovely person".
