Front garden allotment/kitchen garden

We have just brought a new house, the front garden is North facing. 
In our previous house we had a south facing front garden and turned it into a flower/allotment garden space. 
I want to do the same again, whilst making it look nice, however I'm worried that it being North facing will prevent me from doing it in a productive way. Any hints or tips or how to ensure I can grow fruit/veg in a productive way whilst still looking nice? 
Current thinking is buy making sure I use lots of chard/spinach and plants that will survive in shade and possibly using more brassica type plants than fruit.
