* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A small group of “appealing no-frills cafés with a rustic feel” in sought-after locations, including South Kensington and Somerset House. Already “stalwarts” on the London scene, they are “intimate” places providing “simple tapas with the best ingredients”, plus “coffee or a glass of interesting wine”; and there’s “no music, which aids conversation”.

Although they almost pre-date the ‘hipster’, these high-quality, funky little cafés, with their “superb coffee, great tapas, freshly squeezed juices, breads, cakes and toasties” hold their own well against newer competitors. “The best F&W is at Somerset House, where on a sunny day you can sit outside and look at the beautiful architecture and fountains, just a minute from the Courtauld and the Strand”.
