Went to eat here with my partner and sat facing the kitchen area. I ordered the breakfast and my partner the falafel. Watched the proprietor pick out and throw away some falafel that was covered in mould and put ones that seemed ok, to him, on a plate to give to my partner. He dressed it with salad using his hands which didn't get washed the entire time we were there even though he was handling money and clearing tables.
When he brought down the food I confronted him about the mould and he lied straight to my face.
My toast was burned and he buttered it with his filthy hands. Everything was precooked and heated in the microwave. I drank the Tea and got up to leave after eating only an egg that was cooked fresh. I wouldn't let my partner eat the falafel.

When I went to pay he wouldn't even look at me and charged me full price knowing we hadn't eaten. It was the worst dining experience I've ever had.
Definitely not delicious and anything but fresh

We went here after we realised that Covent Garden was just full of Chain style restaurants and/or very expensive places!
The cafe (it's tiny!) served mostly paninis, jacket potatoes, cakes etc but has a really great specials' board offering main meals.
I had the Moroccan chicken, my husband had the moussaka and my son had the lamb koftas - all three were delicious! They were served with fresh salad, pitta and houmas. Although the meals weren't massive and you wouldn't be coming here for a three course meal, at around £5.50, they were excellent value and really tasty.
I would definitely recommend it if you are after simple, reasonably priced tasty food in a no frills environment.
