“Fresh and home made lunch”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

between lectures and work this is the place to go for lunch! I had the lasagna and the pasta pesto and their sandwiches there and they are just brilliant. For the amount that you will pay for hot lunch the portions are big ! they also give free banana on your lunch! very friendly staff.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Top quality food! Tasty ingredients and very well prepared. A gorgeous selection of ciabattas and daily specials such as roast pork sandwiches and creamy pasta bakes. Eat in or take away the portions are huge and the food is lovely. Service is fantastic, very friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend!!

“Cozy café; good coffee; great bread”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

This little café managed to be just what we needed as we stumbled through Bloomsbury looking for a hot breakfast. Cozy brick and timber décor, piles of thick bread and pastries as you walk through the door. Friendly staff and a veggie full English made to order-- decent veggie sausages and eggs as hard as I like them. Crusty toast slathered with butter and big bowls of strong black coffee had us lingering a bit longer over a second cuppa.

Bathrooms were very clean and the whole place had a nice buzz. I would say you should trek across London to come here, but if you're in the neighbourhood and need a bite to eat, definitely pop in.

“A very nice cafe, nothing more or less”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Very nice cafe, with a good selection of sandwiches, which were lovely, and pasta, which looked very nice. There is seating, a little cramped, but they seem to do most of their trade as take out.
