I’m usually not into chain bakeries. Most Gail’s aren’t particularly appealing to me but this spot breaks the mould. This Gail’s has a gorgeous arrangement of cakes, tarts, scones, pies, and other scrumptious baked goods. Worth stepping in, if only to gaze over the mounds...More

I came with a baby and the stroller was easily managed there. Long table made my visit pleasant. I could chit chat with another person. The danishes were very very good and coffee was good as well.

I just had the chicken burger. It was AWFUL. The chicken was pink, like raw. I’ll never go back! Food is below average and the staff is rude.

renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
