Our Name

The Hackney brook river flowed from Holloway, through Blackstock road and emptied into the River Lea at Hackney Wick. During this time, Blackstock Road was called ‘Boarded River Lane’ giving us our name, ‘River Lane’.

Our Goal

We’ve been residents in Finsbury Park for the past 20 years. We’ve always wanted to share our passion for coffee with the local residents and visitors of Finsbury Park and we’re finally able to with our Cafe. Buying local produce and working with other local independent businesses is extremely important for us and the continued development of Finsbury Park. Therefore, we’ve teamed up with other local businesses to create a delicious coffee blend and an amazing food menu.
