Visited today as part of a group of 4. Average food and had a real canteen feel. I've got such a headache due to the noise in the place, and it wasn't an atmospheric feeling either. Great range of cabinet food but honestly I would never go back. Sorry.

Great selection of food, not so much vegetarian which caused some grief, but lots of GF choices, and sandwiches, rolls, cakes, soups, savouries. All very tempting. Comfy seating inside or eat outside in the sun. Great coffee as well. What more can I say /go there !

SOHO Brown is a central city find for locals, visitors, and business travellers. Unlike other nearby cafes this spot is spacious, light, quiet, and offers a varied menu for sensible prices. I often go here for breakfast. The eggs and coffee are all they should be, and hot (as we all prefer our eggs and coffee to be). For lunch choose from hot or takeaway items. There are sweets for the sweet, and a varied early dinner menu for not much more than McDonald's. Throw in a beer or a glass of wine for a few bucks. This has become a favourite go-to restaurant for all ages but even when it's busy you can find a seat indoors or out. Fast, friendly service is the icing on the cake. Accessible if you use a walking frame or wheelchair.

Sunday brunch with friends. We arrived with no booking and found only one other couple seated in the resteraunt-----should have known !! We were advised that there was a 20 minute wait for breakfast. As there was no real hurry 20 minutes was ok. Two of our party received there meal in 25 minutes the other couple took 35 minutes--no other customers were in the resteraunt. Eggs Benny ---almost ok--the Bread / toast was so over cooked it crumbled on the plate.urley wait staff just completed the experience as a resteraunt to be missed. We noted the resteraunt next door was full---damn should have known.
