I was drawn in by the sweet smell of cinnamon and somewhat quirky hipster exterior but I was driven out by the sweaty staff and prison conditions. This cafe is extremely dirty, the kind of place where a spill will remain until the end of the day. The furniture was basic, prison style, and the tables were sticky and dirty,... More

There have been lots of previous reviews where the staff have been roundly criticised - perhaps the comments have had an impact because I was greeted by smiles and efficient service. The interior is a bit austere, and so we chose to eat in the park opposite - lovely in the sunshine, but a bit noisy with the perennial building... More

Delicious and authentically Norwegian cafe food - rye bread sandwiches with smoked salmon were tasty. Good cafe atmosphere although you can also take the food away and sit in Golden Square across the road. Didn't have time for coffee but it looked good. Friendly and helpful staff.

The reason for average is because one of the employees was very rude. This is the Nordic bakery in neal street. The place is nice with a lovely atmosphere. Plenty of cakes, pastries and savoury food but our experience was totally ruined by a very rude person who works there( not sure if he was the manager but for sure... More

Good cinnamon buns and coffee a bit let down by the staff. Nice range of cakes and sandwiches, staff would benefit from being a bit more cheerful and attentive.

We visited the Nordic Bakery several times while in London. The cinnamon buns and light sandwiches are wonderful. We ended up buying their beautiful cookbook. Our favorite.

Really liked the cinnamon roll they serve here, coffee is also good. On the downside, I'd say the seating area is not particularly the best to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee out, but it's ok for a quick drink and a nice bun or roll.

This place has wonderful cinnamon buns, but the service is not great. The people are not as friendly as good service would command. (Few smiles, not much effort). After bringing the wrong order there's no apology and no real effort to make sure that I as customer am happy. I saw someone else come to the counter and ask where... More

Wanted to try this bakery with a friend of mine, it looks interesting from outside. However when we walked in none of the 2 people behind the counter paid attention. The place looked dark, with no music in bacground - in one word SAD. We left without having anything, there was no interest from staff that we are there looking... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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 most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
