This High Street Kensington branch illustrates why this popular little chain is so successful - they've got nine branches now across London. The regency-meets-modern interior certainly looks the part and the food - a mix of Mediterranean dishes with a focus on France - is accessible.
Breakfasts and brunches do brisk business, with freshly baked bread and patisserie served alongside eggs benedict, granola with yoghurt, freshly squeezed juices and a full French - a Gallic take on a full English, with Toulouse sausage, bacon from Alsace, duck egg and mushrooms. A touch fancier than greasy spoon fry-up, then.
The dinner menu ranges from beef carpaccio with truffle vinaigrette to moules mariniere, pan-fried sea bass with roasted artichoke purée and sauce vierge, and squid dusted with paprika and chilli, and served with fresh chilli, spring onion and a lime aioli. Charcuterie platters and cheese boards feature, too.
