Pre-war-style furnishings and booths add up to a Brief Encounter aesthetic, and the charming service makes you feel special in an old-fashioned way - though hair is let down on weekends with DJs after midnight spinning laidback grooves to keep punters interested. As well as the standard roster of drinks and lunchtime sandwiches there's an evening, meat-heavy menu. If it's full - and it often is - there are plenty of other excellent choices on the street.
