This community-minded Crouch End duo are full of beans after their coffee shop was voted the best in London - a year after they narrowly missed out on the accolade.

The Haberdashery owners Greg Vukasovic and Massimo Bergamin are still walking on air scooped the top title at the third annual London Lifestyle Awards.

For the Middle Lane coffee shop, it was a case of second time lucky after they lost out in 2011 to a chain in central London.

Mr Vukasovic believes the secret to their success is the community involvement which he and Mr Bergamin have placed at the heart of the business since they opened three years ago - and, of course, their coffee and homemade treats.

“I think we have been very lucky to be in Crouch End, which has a very strong and tight-knit community,” he said. “A big part of what we wanted to do [when we opened] was work in the community. So we do a lot of different events like Barboot, we support local musicians, craftspeople and artists and raise money for charity.

“I think that is what really gives us the edge.”
