    My friend and I took one look through the giant window of this place, stuffed with the most delicious looking cakes and pastries, and went straight in. Very nice staff, who listed the flavours of meringue for me (almond, raspberry, chocolate and pistachio). Choosing what to get was painful, yet exciting! In the end we got a lemon cupcake and apple & plum crumble, both good. I need to go back to try some of those meringues, and the coconut & pistachio cupcake. Also they have lots of prepared Mediterranean dishes which looked good, especially the rare beef. Only thing I wasn't loving was the hot chocolate, it was not at all sweet which was actually quite a nice change but was basically too milky. If they really want to go for the Mediterranean theme they should get one of those hot chocolate machines. Not that that is my own interests, or anything.

    Almost forgot to mention...the women's toilet features this kind of black marble plinth. Fancy!

    I had a breakfast in this place and I like coffee and pastries very much. There 's a wide selection of delicious pastries and also they have lots of organic vegetables too. You can find almond, raspberry, choclate, orange, lemon and coconut cupcakes. I'm also  looking forward to turning back to London and tast apple crumble and chocolate cakes  too. The atmosphere is warm, coffe's are delicious and the staff were welcoming. It's a nice place to have breakfast and also take a shopping break.

    Cakes are stale, service is slow, food is dry. This place looks nice on the outside, but not worth the price! Better go to Jaks or order cakes privately.
