I must admit, Fleet Street was the last place I expected to find a relaxing place to eat something fresh but quick on a Wednesday evening. Among the pubs and off licenses opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, this quiet little place stays open until 7pm on weeknights – perfect to stop off for a breather before another engagement.

The sign outside promises speciality coffee, loose-leaf tea, smiles and ‘pretty nice people’ – inside they have glorious red velvet cake on display and boards promising soup of the day (veg and pesto on the day I visited) plus a roll for a very reasonable £2.70. I had a sun-dried vegetable, houmous and rocket roll which was absolutely delicious.

Anything else to report? The location definitely makes for some interesting people-watching and I expect this is even better during the day when the courts are open. The decor is cosy and relaxed but modern – they have some interesting photos on the walls, from Jessie J to a portrait of The Queen doing her lipstick.

I only wished I could have stay there a bit longer before I had to dash off – will definitely be going again.
