Casual atmosphere. Great food. Favoured by the university students and business community. I've missed out a few times as they close early. Tucked out of the way but worth looking for.

Hidden on the fringes of Old North and Central Core London, Willie's is THE place to get a really fantastic sandwich, soup and or salad. They don't do dinners except for a gourmet reserved only dinner once a month, and then only some months. They do cater to businesses for lunches though, and do a great job with a wonderful selection. You can also 'special-up' any sandwich, so try the "Spicy" Turkey wrap (my own favourite and 'special' order).

I highly advise you to make a lunch reservation! If the weather is good, they will be packed in, and although you 'might' get a table otherwise, you won't want to be disappointed.

Parking is slight, but you can always pirates a spot around back in the Beerstore or Wendy's lot ;-)

This place is just fabulous..you must go for a really, really tasty lunch. I've never been for dinner, but am sure it is outstanding as well. Very casual, order off the chalk board...amazing food!
