A cute cafe in the Aldwych area serving takeaway salads, toasties and sandwiches, plus porridge for breakfast on-the-go.
Hip and minimalist, with splashes of colour from its gorgeous Ottolenghi-style displays of modish salads and cakes, and a touch of theatre from its huge, gleaming coffee machine, Lundenwic could be the blueprint for the coffee shop of your dreams. Set up by the founders of Scotchtails (they of the artisan Scotch eggs), it has all the boxes ticked when it comes to aesthetics: white-washed brick walls, contrasting black metal lightshades, discreetly branded takeaway cups and a rack filled with trendy magazines. The menu is similarly on-trend, but has substance as well as style – you can pick up a seasonal cold-pressed house juice to make you feel better about adding a Crosstown doughnut to your order, or choose three salads from the counter and top them with a good helping of halloumi, for just under a tenner. Meanwhile, if you thought sandwiches were the dullard’s choice, Lundenwic will make you think again – fillings range from jerk chicken with red-cabbage slaw and lime aioli to toasties of roasted broccoli with chilli, almonds and cheddar. Great food, good looks and a friendly vibe – who could ask for more?
