A nice coffee house in bloomsbury, so if you are a university student (SOAS, UCL, University of London..) location wise, it is a great place to hangout. The food and the service are good as well.

One stair down from the street, I found this charming and busy breakfast place. Coffee is good. Breakfast look nice, but I only had coffee. Guess I will be back during my stay in London👍

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
