The cafe is light airy and modern as is the menu... staff are friendly and efficient, I would certainly recommend it, even if you are not 'furniture' shopping the cafe is well worth a visit

This is a lovely place to eat and take stock before you sign on the dotted line for your new furniture! The service is excellent, the menu varied and a bit out of the ordinary, if a little pricey!! The cakes are amazing!

I have eaten at Arighi Bianchi's cafe prior to this visit before and I very highly recommend this cafe for its first class customer service and food that they serve. I called on a very busy day when they were very busy with customers and still they delivered a highly exceptional customer service and high quality food. I would like to congratulate the catering team and management for an exceptional experience yet again.
Best wishes

The cafe bar here is a find - but not a rare one as any visitor will see from its popularity. Busy lively place usually.
Arighi bianchi is not the average furniture store and their dedication to style, quality and excellent customer service is just as important within the cafe bar. Wonderful quality fresh salads and sides. If you have a passion for cakes, then the sight of the display here will thrill. The scones are huge, with lashings of cream and jam. The tarts and cakes all worth sampling.
The menu is a delight. From snacks to full meals, all worth trying.
The food presentation is really good and is used to enhance the dish and never as substitute for taste, unlike many places these days, The food is fresh and portions generous. Filter coffee top ups are offered on a regular basis and service is usually very good. Any problems are that may arise dealt with efficiently and professionally.
The salmon cream cheese bagel is a favourite of mine, as is the light and creamy scrambled eggs with smoked salmon or bacon Crosstini is really tasty as a side or shared starter. The soups are hearty on a cold day and the sandwich selection is worth a look. Pasta dishes are good as you would expect.
I am a regular who has attended some fantastic New Years day Champagne breakfasts here over the years and hope that they stay as a feature, as they are well worth the effort.
A nice touch is that you are likely to see one of several members of the Arighi Bianchi family enjoying the cafe bar food on a table nearby, or even serving at busy times. It is no surprise that the food and service is good with those in charge approachable and completely in touch with the cafe customers on a daily basis.
