Wow! What a fantastic shop! Sandwich was delicious and reasonably priced, and we were able to conduct the whole transaction in French, which, being good linguists, we enjoyed. However I'm sure the staff spoke English too. A first- class sandwich and a shop we will definitely go back to!

Great breakfast selections, very good prices, fast service, and a very friendly and helpful owner make Raison D'etre a cut above similar cafes in the area. It was so good we came here twice even though our lodgings included complementary hot English breakfast.

Easily the best baguette I have had in London. The service is very friendly and the prices are brilliant.

Best Coffee and Sandwich place in London.
Great menu and very friendly staff.
I recommend the new yorker, raison d'etre and Joseph baguettes. They are absolutely tasty and you won't find anything similar in town!

This place is fantastic. Best croissants in London, and extremely friendly staff, all at reasonable prices. The sandwiches are surprisingly good–the kind of food you didn't expect to be so good. Truly enjoyable.
