Excellent independent coffee house with fresh food including homemade quiches, salads, pies and cakes. Down a few steps to basement level with plenty of seating and a few outside tables when it's sunny. They serve Allpress Coffee and make it well. This is like a...More

Cute little place that would probably be nice to hang out at for a while. We were just grabbing something quickly that we could walk and eat with. Good coffee and scones. Some of the other baked items looked good. And they had other items...More

Well worth a visit as the coffee is excellent and there's a wide variety of breakfast items. We had the french toast which was tasty, would definitely revisit - beats the chains and is only a quick stroll away from Euston.

I had two consecutive 'business meetings' here last week, one over coffee, the other over lunch. Both were excellent, food good, staff friendly, nice atmosphere - can't fault this place for a quick tasty good value lunch with a smile.

I was staying close by, and even though my hotel offered breakfast I ended up coming here every morning. The coffee is excellent, and they have a lot of excellent breakfast options. I liked the smashed avocado, personally.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
