Tibits – Regent Street

This vegetarian cafe had only been open for two weeks when we visited it. On entering, it was very spacious and had a nice atmosphere. Everything looked very new and clean. The staff seemed to be clearing up constantly so the cafe remained tidy.

Leon de Bruxelles – Paris (Republique)

A good Belgian restaurant in the middle of Paris. The moules marinieres, mussels in a white wine sauce, were cooked perfectly. The chunky chips were great too but what made them even tastier was the thick good quality mayonnaise.

The Hummingbird Bakery – South Kensington

This is quite a small cafe with a limited seating area. There are a few comfy seats and a couple of tables outside as well. This bakery specialises in cupcakes, cookies, brownies and layered cakes. These are all freshly baked on the premises. They also have a daily special on their menu – a different…

Oscars – Whiteleys Bayswater

This is a really good Mexican restaurant with nice decor and a good atmosphere. We only had the appetizers but they were as filling as a main meal. The chicken taquito (a corn tortilla filled with shredded chicken) had tender chicken with taco sauce and a good amount of vegetables. The taco sauce was not too spicy…

Tiffinbites – Liverpool Street Station

This is a gem of an Indian cafe with all the food tasting authentic. The idea behind this cafe/restaurant is the Indian tiffin tins. Tiffin tins are what are used primarily in India to transport lunches to workers. There are usually 3 containers: one with rice, one with a curry and one with vegetables. The food…

Le Village Ronsard – Paris (Maubert-Mutualite)

A cafe that had a pub like atmosphere. The waiters were friendly and greeted us with a smile. It had a wide screen TV showing the news to keep you occupied. The cafe creme (latte) was very nice. Saw some of the hot food that other customers were having and it looked of good quality….

Bistro Romain – Paris (Republique)

A nice and friendly restaurant which had seasonal additions to its menu. This month was the ravioli month so we decided that they should be sampled. The first time at this restaurant, we had the mint, basil, tomato and ricotta tortellini which tasted really good. We also had the grilled vegetables (aubergine, red pepper and courgette)…

Yum Cha Silks and Spice – Camden Town

We originally came to this restaurant just for tea but then decided to have some dim sum as well. It has a nice location opposite the Stables Market in Camden. There was not a great range of vegetarian steamed dim sum but we did have the vegetarian Thai spring rolls. These were crispy and not at all oily….

Cafe Francois – Paris (Bastille)

This cafe felt very light, airy and spacious. There seemed to be a few additional customers here though, the pigeons and sparrows that had flown in through the open windows and doors. There was no shortage of seating. Even though we had ordered cafe cremes (latte), the coffee was given in pots with the jug…

Cocoa Cafe – Paris (Republique)

We popped into this cafe just for coffee. The waiter was friendly and he was happy even when we said that we just wanted drinks and no food. The cafe creme (latte) was creamy and frothy. We didn’t feel rushed at this cafe and the decor was pretty cool with its purple and chocolate coloured…

Pick More Daisies – Crouch End

CLOSED DOWN   This review has been left for historical value. Come here for breakfast, lunch, dinner or coffee and cake. Its perfect for anytime of the day! To start the day, if you would like a good quality fry-up (without the atmosphere of a greasy cafe!), then try the Brits Breakfast. Their Kobe burgers…
