There are, however, some of Camden that remains partially neglected. Camden Passage, a forgotten pedestrian passage off Upper Street and is the locale of many antiques shops and markets that run on a Wednesday and Sunday. There is also a handful of great eateries and cafes that are recommended a visit. Set down this cobbled alley is The Elk in the Woods, a food and drink serving establishment reminiscent of a Danish log cabin in its interior. This best kept secret or little known, more accurately, is a quiet and chilled out affair. Those that do know about this venue can be found dining on the good fare served here or supping on a tasty beverage. The air is filled with the faint sound of chatter with no ambient music, but this is kind of preffered here. Wooden-clad walls, eclectic mix of furniture, exposed brickwork and great use of lighting makes the interior very inviting. If you and an escort in Camden want to explore the alternatives options but are bogged down with choice then this is a great place to delve into. The sumptuous food is a real palate-pleaser. Start your day with a breakfast-brunch option of duck eggs and asparagus, one of the many mouthwatering choices. Sandwiches here aren’t just your standard cheese and tomato sarnies - they are some of the most gourmet you can get, a meal in themselves. Then there is the assortment of ‘Smalls’, little dishes of appetizing tasters to tempt you. Mains are truly sublime, extravagant plates of food as are the decadent deserts. Wash whatever you pick down with a wine, beer, alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, hot and soft drinks.
