Visited this place on recommendation, after we were let down by another place, this is a little gem, such lovely people, great wine, and fresh cooked food, we had a tapas style picky dinner and it was delicious, great place, highly recommended.

One of the best coffee shops in London. They also do great cakes, a great place to go if you want a nice coffee shop for a catch up

This is a small chick little wine and cheese place great for a pre theatre meal. Try the hams with the cheese and order the spicy potatoes. They are excellent! this whole street is filled with great little places.

This place on Lexington Street has been a favourite hideaway for years. Dependable, delicious tapas and excellent finos and wines. All in a compact cosy space. Recent change to "merge" with the coffee shop premises on Beak Street means that the USP of this place...More

Been a big fan for years but - and I'm really sad about this - they just massively cut their menu. From abundance to parsimony in one move! Goodness knows what the management are thinking. The poor staff just look apologetic. Seems like many long-time...More

We actually went to the companies Beak Street Restaurant but sadly that is closing soon. We also visited this cafe and both were excellent, just what is needed after walking around town all morning. All the sandwiches look good and it was difficult to choose,...More

Home made cakes and simple food with a twist. Beats the chains. Excellent coffee too! If visiting London, treat yourself .

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

Why haven't you got covers/sneeze barriers to cover the sandwiches and cakes? Hygiene issue here. Just watched 2 customers peering over closely at them with pointed fingers nearly touching! Very off putting. I would have eaten here otherwise. This open food on display seems to be an artisan coffee bar in UK fashion sadly. Would never happen in Italy & France or US. The health people would be on to you
