I've been going to a few cafés of late so thought I'd reveal their credentials to you in one go.
Café #1...Trendy, playful and ready to please. This nostalgic café is big on style.
The Breakfast Club. I've already posted about these guys and their delicious brunch offerings, however this time I sampled their pancakes (mainly because it was Pancake Day!). This café is fun-loving and knows how to satisfy a grumbly tummy with their American diner-style menu. You'll find their Soho, Hoxton and Angel branches all get pretty busy, but it's for a good reason.
English breakfast tea
Café #2: An arty type, this modest lover of vintage decor is the reliable type.
The Candid Café in Angel is a hidden gem. Behind Angel station off of City Road, this café is above the small Candid Arts venue. Full of intriguing paintings and vintage furniture, it's a lovely place to unwind, stop off with a friend, have a relaxed meeting or just sit and read a book for a while. They serve food all day and also have some lovely cakes on display (yes, I had one). Good and dependable this café certainly is.
Coffee and blueberry cheesecake
Café #3: Host to a busy lifestyle, this one's all about satisfying in a short-stop, no questions asked sort of way.
The Fleet River Bakery is tucked away behind Kingsway Road in Holborn and doesn't fail to attract a crowd. Selling Monmouth coffee and a lovely array of teas, along with some dangerously tasty cakes, (the peanut butter cheesecake in particular is a must!) There's freshly made salads, tarts and quiches if you're in the mood to take it one step further with lunch.
Eight butterflies green tea (cranberry, rose petals & chrysanthemum)
