A Crown Post Office on Holloway Road that closed down earlier this year has been replaced by a smaller, franchised post office on Seven Sisters Road with a rather unique feature, in the form of on-site café Posta (think Costa but with more envelopes). On our visit, the near-empty coffee shop (which occupies around half the floor-space) had all the atmosphere of an airport lounge. Our espresso was watery and the croissant was as crisp as the stuffing in a Jiffy bag. But they probably do a mean postal order. Posta, 116-120 Seven Sisters Rd, N7 6AE.
