L'Eau a la Bouche is the perfect place to have a coffee/brunch while sited outside & being able to watch people walk by across Broadway Market. With French origins, it has a great selection of brunch options & a cosy deli shop for your quick shopping.


This place makes great coffee and iced coffee and its outdoor tables are the perfect people-watching spot, especially on a Saturday morning when Broadway market is on. It is hard to get a seat but not impossible. I haven't tried the food but looks delicious and they have some deli products as well, mostly French.


Walking through Broadway Market sometimes you just want to sit down and people watch. My friend and I struggled to get seats here, at L'Eau a la Bouche, because so many people are doing what we planned to do, sit and watch the people walk by. Previously I had been in this shop/cafe, to buy mortadella and other southern European foods. I really enjoyed the food I bought, and I had finished it really quickly. 

This time we just wanted to get coffee and look at the people walking by. Originally we had brought books with us to read in the crowded cafe, but I think I was only able to read 4 pages in the two hours that we sat there. It was just such a good view. We were able to see different families walking past, with cute children stopping to listen to and clap for the street musicians.

They probably would have let us sit there for a lot longer, but the market was closing and there were less people to watch, and it had been a while since we had finished our coffees. But if you ever feel lonely in London, sitting there on a Saturday afternoon will really cheer you up. 

Lovely food and drinks. Perfect to sit down and watch the razzmatazz on broadway market. But to expensive!
