Small but cozy cafe with nice choice of menu (even limited). Good food & coffee and friendly service at reasonable price. A good place to take a break after visiting British Museum.

We had a lovely breakfast of poached eggs (not over cooked) on avocado toast with super fresh pressed juice. Clean, modern yet quaint atmosphere.
