Patisserie Conte – Toulouse

A relaxing way to spend the hot afternoon was at Patisserie Conte. This was a colourful tea room with exquisite cakes. A tranquil and relaxing atmosphere was provided with no background music. Deep red walls and red table cloths contrasted the bright comfortable seating.

Notes – Kings Cross

Notes was a lot smaller than expected for the seating areas. It did have an upper level. There was no worry of looking for vacant seats as the staff show you to available seats when you enter.

Pizza Pilgrims – Covent Garden

Quite a few years back, pizza was all about the toppings and the cheese. The more the better. Not much attention was paid to the base. How things have changed. Now it is all about the base, the crust and the minimal toppings.

Brother Marcus -Angel

Brother Marcus looks like a small coffee shop from the outside. The entrance is a solid blue door that has the “Come Inside” sign. The restaurant instantly has a welcoming atmosphere and a rustic feel to it. Green plants are entwined onto frames along the walls. Everything else is wooden including the wall panels and furniture.

Monsieur Georges – Toulouse

Although Monsieur Georges is situated in Place St Georges, it is secluded from the main square with plants and vegetation. The outdoor seating by the entrance initially looks fairly small but then there is additional seating over the grass way.

Ole & Steen – St James’s Market

Ole & Steen is in the new St James’s Market, located just off Haymarket. As expected for a central location, this Danish cafe was extremely busy. Even though it had seats on the entrance level, outdoor seats, upper and lower level seating, it was tricky to get a few seats together.
