Café Kick bills itself as a continental-style table-football café, and that seems fair enough! It presents an eclectic, almost jumbled appearance, with old wooden furniture, several table football tables and walls adorned with football cuttings and memorabilia from all over Europe. You can get light, Spanish-influenced meals such as salads, sandwiches and tapas, and a wide range of beers. We?ve never eaten here, but have found it a great place to stop for a beer while strolling Exmouth Market, a characterful street in Clerkenwell. On a recent sunny afternoon we sat outside watching the world go by and I enjoyed the first Brahma beer I?ve had since our trip to Brazil eight years ago.

The table football is taken pretty seriously here, it seems, though no games were in progress when we visited (perhaps because it was the middle of a working Monday afternoon). The tables are original French Bonzini tables with beech wood, cast iron figurines and the proper World Cup cork balls. If you want to play you?ll need to buy a token from the bar at 80p per game.
