Turned out to be a good move - the coffee is fantastic! Not to mention the pastries on display. We opted to share a cheese and ham... read more

We stay in London for few days, and we were looking for a nice place to take a coffee. We bumped into this charming place. We are french and it was a good surprise to meet the owners, who are french too. Coffee and croissant were delicious, and pastries looked so apetizing ! We had a good time ! Thank... More

Stopped off here for a coffee and hot chocolate. The cappuccino was simply perfect and a welcome antidote to the rubbish I was served at Costa Earls Court. The hot chocolate should be renamed hot frothlet and my ten year old son absolutely loved it. Also bought a crodough, cross between a croissant and a doughnut. Utter genius and big... More

I'm so frustrated that these chain restaurants are on the radar everywhere anymore - NY, Istanbul, London (I'm sure many other places too). :(

Loved the coffee and the banana and chocolate cakes, really delicious! The merengues are a little pricey but look amazing, service is quite nice also.

We stopped here after visiting the British Museum. It was a very pleasant experience. I had a sandwich which was simple but very delicious. The pastries looked amazing but I did not try one. I wish we would have spotted this place earlier in the morning because we unfortunately had a terrible breakfast experience near by. For the same price,... More

I have walked passed this shop many times and finally went in to pick up a sandwich to take to uni with me. I was there to early for sandwiches though but the owner/chef happily made one to order for me and it was delicious! The croissant were very good as well and they have a good selection of cakes...
