The best place to breakfast before settling off to visit the sites of London. Have managed to get here twice in 6 days. They also do excellent lunches to sit in or take away. Highly recommended.

Regular prices and good breakfast options. It's a small place and you may have to wait 5-10 minutes to sit.

This place is the holy grail of creamy pasta and salad. BEST FOOD EVER. I need to kidnap the chef so he can cook me bacon and brocolli pasta everyday. Portions are very good and the food is always fresh and wonderful.

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.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
