Le Loir is named after the unfortunate dormouse who gets dunked in the pot at the Mad Hatter's tea party in Alice In Wonderland. Its squishy sofas are the perfect complement to its comfort food: it specialises in baked goods, and the famed lemon meringue and chocolate fondant are divine. At weekends it's packed out with tourists in search of brunch; long queues of people looking enviously at your plate, plus occasionally patchy service, can mar the experience. Come early (before noon) or be prepared to queue.
