This bright caff looks out through large windows at the broad flank of St Leonard’s church across the street. Plates of prodigiously steaming dishes are delivered
promptly from a reheat, along with a mug of strong tea, in portions designed to satisfy local brickies as much as local media bohos.
The preparation area consists of a display case for salad and clingfilmed cakes, a counter for big pots of own-made stew, curry, beef pie and lasagne, and a range for frying the breakfast eggs. The staff are obliging but admirably unfussy (cakes arrive with a teaspoon rather than a fork), and the food, although a little sludgy from the microwave, is still tasty and satisfying.
