Welcome to My Time
The catalyst for My Time was to serve locally made cakes and tray bakes whist delivering really great organic speciality coffee and premium quality teas in Palmers Green, plus living in Palmers Green it was all the incentive we needed to set up and grow amongst the community.
Our bakers are local or based in the Enfield area and we get to share their delicious cakes with our customers. Mainly retro layer cakes, pastries and tray bakes from bakers such as Cakes by Soulla, Nectar Bakery and our own home baked cakes, not forgetting some amazing desserts.
Coffees and Teas are from directly traded, independent farms and estates that use no pesticides or herbicides in the production process and have traceability and a low as possible carbon footprint but above all supports sustainability to the farms and communities they are from, helping to build infrastructure in those regions. We believe the coffee and teas are the best served in Palmers Green but if you don’t agree after tasting, then it’s on us.
Introducing the community to ethically sourced speciality coffee from Climpson & Sons and premium loose-leaf teas from The Rare Tea Co. we’ve become a bit niche and now want more of the discerning coffee and tea drinkers of Palmers Green to experience these flavoursome beverages with us (see Tea and Coffee menu, under menu drop down).
Listening to what our customers wanted from the business we have experimented, tested and come up with an expanded menu offering breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea, including “free from” foods and beverages such as gluten free, dairy free, vegan, caffeine and refined sugar free options. Allowing us to be more inclusive and giving families with different dietary needs the opportunity to eat out together.
Since opening My Time works with other local and independent and craft producers and is now being supplied by Holtwhites Bakery. Using Holtwhites organic breads has allowed us to add a hot sandwich range to the menu consisting of our special Club Sandwiches using Multi Grain, Bloomer Melts and Brunches using the tasty Chase Sour dough. Weekends we have Holtwhites croissants; chocolate and hazelnut plus almond. Holtwhites scrumptious Pasteis de Nata is becoming a firm favourite of our customers.
We’ve created gourmet burgers with delicious toppings; using a 6oz organic beef patty supplied by SJ Smith Butchers, check out the Brie and Bacon burger! We also use SJ Smiths handmade gluten free pork sausages for our breakfasts and sandwiches.
Our dessert classics such as Knickerbocker Glory, Banana Split and an indulgent Chocolate Brownie Sundae have a My Time twist to them (see main menu).
Friday evenings the bar opens and serves made to order cocktails, Enefeld Brewery beers, Old Bakery gin cocktails, organic wines and Prosecco. My Time is the place to satisfy your food and drink needs.
Our café has a great retro vibe about it, giving a real funky feel and we have a chill out comfy seating area as well as higher tables in our café section. There’s a range of vinyl records (growing daily) and mainly pop culture books for you to peruse. We also exhibit work from budding artists and host pop up shops and restaurants for those in the community who don’t necessarily have a shop front to sell their range of homebased craft products, food and designs.
For our customers convenience My Time has free Wi-Fi (when eating in), if you need to connect or finish some important work. My Time also caters for business meetings, events, launches or clubs. From time to time we host our own events such as a Quiz Night or Vinyl Record Night and host live Sunday afternoon music sessions from some great local musicians, so keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram page or website (click link from this site or see events page). We take bookings for private functions too and will work together to arrange a great event for you and your quests dealing with the food, drinks, entertainment and music.
Please look through the site, we also have a retail section selling items such as teapots, our funky double walled coffee glasses, loose leaf teas, coffee beans, Raw Enfield Honey, Old Bakery Gin and more. You can book afternoon tea too and keep up to date with our events and menu.
If you are at home working, busy or just chilling, we can deliver through our delivery partners Deliveroo, the delivery menu is on their site. You can reach them at Deliveroo.co.uk or download the app.
Opened since 2016 we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone eating, drinking, socialising at My Time and supporting what we are trying to achieve. We continue working to bring café culture to Palmers Green and keep our High Street alive. Essentially our ethos is to put back in to our local economy as much as possible whist delivering high quality, tasty food and drink (It’s not just another café).
Hope to see you soon!
