I went for breakfast and was so impressed with the food and coffee that I went back three mornings in a row. Just so yum, with interesting and yet simple adaptations to both Japanese and cosmopolitan (Japanese fusion?) created with emphasis on fresh and flavour!

A previous reviewer questioned why a magazine needs a cafe.. the obvious response (albeit biased, I should stress I am a Monocle subscriber) is that the Monocle magazine attempts to present itself as a lifestyle brand and purveyors of a certain type of culture, targeted...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged

southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
