These shops, with a rather unpronounceable name, are all over London. The density is astounding, from the entrance of one it's sometimes possible to see the next one already. Especially in business and shopping areas it's almost one next to the other. They seem to employ the same scheme that made Starbucks famous: attract customers with power sockets and free... More

We went in for drinks. It was spacious, bright and clean, with adequate seating. There was a really good choice of snacks, sandwiches, soups and fresh fruit. A selection of teas and coffees were available too. The prices were reasonable, rolls and sandwiches well filled which definitely came across as value for money.

While the coffee was your average chain, it was nice to always have a decent cup of coffee nearby. We found that the staff was always friendly and it was a good stop to grab a quick snack and coffee whenever and wherever we needed it around London!

Went there for coffee and a sandwich today. Service from behind the counter was frosty to say the least. Not a please or thank you or a smile from any of the staff, they were all EU people and perhaps how they provide service at home. Though ib a city that survives on the tourist industry, it doesnt go down... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
