If you live in North London, particularly Cockfosters or the surrounding areas, then you should know about Miracles. Located very close to Cockfosters tube station (Piccadilly line) is this little gem. Technically it’s a coffee shop, but in reality it is so much more than that. Big portions, buzzing atmosphere, good food, extremely good value and it’s ALWAYS busy. Expect to wait for a table at peak times but it’s worth it. For me and my family it’s a regular and I like to think it’s my local even though it’s a good 20 minute drive from my house. You MUST have the curly fries, they are a joke. As are the milkshakes.
