Café with a view #15: The Lighterman, King’s Cross

View from The Lighterman Kings Cross
Located in the huge redevelopment behind King’s Cross station, and overlooking the Regent’s Canal, The Lighterman (3 Granary Square, London, N1C 4BH) offers a prime viewing location for the canal, its boats, King’s Cross redevelopment, The Guardian‘s offices and, currently, lots of building work.

A typical modern mix of restaurant and pub, early in the morning it is generally not very crowded and does very tasty breakfast (at a price).

It’s a lovely location already, and will simply get better and better as the surrounding redevelopment finishes. Head east from here and you’ll come across two other great cafes with lovely views – first the Rotunda a few minutes away and then carry on along the canal into Hackney for the Pavilion Cafe.

You can see all my cafés with view in London here.
