Restaurant description

Offering an authentic taste of traditional Austrian dining, Kipferl Islington is a Viennese-style eatery that serves sweet and savoury Austrian delicacies. Located on Camden Passage behind Upper Street, this is a delightfully tucked away little eatery.

The Kipferl menu offers diners a true Austrian experience, with a diverse selection of traditional recipes, both savoury and sweet. Wiener schnitzel is a crowd-pleasing favourite, and comes served with parsley potatoes, cranberry sauce and mixed salad, while other home-style Austrian delicacies include the classic Austrian dish of kasespätzle, made up of pan-fried egg noodles with organic mountain cheese and topped with fried onion. There are simple soups throughout the day, as well as breakfasts of mountain cheese omelette, and signature French toast.

Traditional Austrian cakes are hugely popular for dessert at Kipferl in Islington, and include options like classic apple strudel, topfentorte, and even gluten-free choices like the espresso cake with chocolate and almonds. To drink, there are Austrian wines and beer, and Viennese coffee specialities.

A cosy, relaxed eatery serving authentic Austrian flavours, Kipferl Islington sits just 4 minutes' walk from Angel Tube Station.

    Love the atmosphere at Kipferl. The staff is very friendly, attentive & professional. The food is delicious! I’ve had the Wiener Schnitzel Vom Kalb & the Kalbsgeschetzeltes. The coffee & cakes are also spectacular. Would recommend the gooseberry cheesecake when they have it (as it’s not one they always have regularly), but honestly all of the cakes I’ve tried at Kipferl have been delicious & special. Definitely a new favourite spot.

    I really enjoyed it, delicious food and nice vibe. It would have been great if the waiters had worn masks though, also they came a bit close to us at times which made me feel a bit uncomfortable. Apart from that a really great experience.
