What’s the niche? Breads, pies, quiches and cakes all made in-house. This light, bright corner café-cum-bakery on Rosebery Avenue makes a useful stop off for a quick lunch or coffee. Situated just up the road from Sadler’s Wells there’s also a simple, but well-priced pre-theatre menu at £12.50 for two courses and £15.50 for three.
On a lunchtime visit our chicken and leek pie, encased in a soft-ish salt crust pastry proved filling, but just a little dry, while haddock fish cakes with a molten cheese-sauce centre were on the salty side. A doughnut was just as it should be though – tart raspberry jam filling, fluffy dough and a decent sprinkling of sugar.
