Unfortunately this place is located in the touristy alleys of Leicester Square so will always get regular one off business that never return. They don't care, they are happy to rely on this. They have a wonderful temptation of cakes on display which helps to...More

Nipped in for late breakfast, lured in by good looking pastries and we should have stuck to that. But tempted by eggs Benedict. Measly serving of hollandaise, cold muffin, plastic ham and microwaved "poached" eggs. And all for £8. Sent it back. Owner unconcerned. Sweet...More
