This is a local gem, cafe by day with full English and Tunisian restaurant by night with tagines, grilled meat and coucous. The place is run by a hospitable couple who offer a warm welcome, even to strangers like us. The food is great, not too filling but with a lovely blend of spices. The pricing of your meal is...

I saw this place several times in passing and thought that I'd try it out. Very clean which I do like and sadly many diners are not. I had a quick breakfast as I'm trying not to overdo the bad for me food. Next time I think I'll go for the full English. Luvly sausage (quite rare ) and slightly... More

We used to come here regularly as we lived just down the road. We've recently started driving here from our new address and it has remained superb. I just love the consistency of this place. I've never been disappointed with the breakfasts. The couple who run it are always welcoming.

We often visit Adams Cafe and have never been disappointed. Couscous and Tagines are really good here and a bit like home made food as opposed to restaurant productions. The couple that runs the place are great hosts too. Carefully selected / not an extensive menu and chef has mastered everything in it. Highly recommend as many other do.

We are never disappointed by the great food at Adams. Just back from a long business trip and a night here was just what we needed. I had the sardines to start then a fabulously tasty mergues couscous. Amazing. Washed down with a Tunisian red. Great food and great hosts. We will be back again soon as.

Been going for years as it's my local cafe. But it's much more than a cafe. In the evening it turns into a sweet Restaurent. I love their panini / melts! Not too expensive. Nice friend family run. Recommend if in the area. Open on weekends which is good if you are looking for a quick takeaway!

I have been coming to eat here since 1990 and have never been disappointed. The merguez are the best I have ever eaten any where. The atmosphere is superb as are the owners. It has been a joy to introduce my children to the delights of Tunisian food.Sadly I no longer live in London so can not eat here as... More

Visited this restaurant following a recommendation from a friend and the trip adviser reviews. Booking was straightforward with a callback to confirm the reservation. We visited on a Saturday night and booking is essential. The food was very good, though one of the deserts, an almond tart was a little dry. We would definitely visit again.

Description
Run by Abdel and Frances Boukraa ��� he hailing from Djerba, Tunisia, she English born and bred ��� Adam���s Caf�� is a thriving family affair which has grown over the years to become one of Shepherds Bush���s most popular restaurants. A caf�� by day and a restaurant serving North African cuisine by night, Adam���s Caf�� is a bustling local hub, informal and authentic, decorated in mosaics and cheerful colours. It may serve the biggest and best breakfast on Askew Road but this is no greasy spoon. Visit in the evening and find yourself greeted by the spice infused aromas of Tunisia and Morocco. The menu consists simply of couscous dishes alongside grills and tagines, each based precisely on Abdel���s experience of home cooking. You really won���t find a more authentic taste of North Africa in the capital.
