A nicely decorated cafe with window seats looking out into Soho. Good coffee. WiFi. Toilets. The coffee was tiny so not really good value but it tasted good. Good cakes and bread. I'd definitely return. Only small so limited seating.

Yup, the trifecta and we stumbled in by mistake looking for a place to rest. Yummy coffee (may want to ask to go easy on the milk), good cakes and bake goods (it is a bakery after all), easy good Wifi. sit out and watch the people go by enjoy!

We took two scones (2.1£) - walnut&maple syrup and cherry&chocolate. We loved both. They were tasty and sweet.

Excellent coffee and croissant. Take away option. There are some tables as well. No long queues. The italian woman attending is really nice. She can cheer up mornings.

From Croissants to cake to cookies to full breakfast the spot excels. The latte was perfect too. Very crowded on a Saturday and you have to have patience with their method of service. You pick your selection and then pay, after which they give you a red stick with a number. The food and drinks don't all arrive at once.... More

I am a regular at Gail's for their takeaway pastries but finally got round to coming for brunch with a friend. This Gail's is very small so you can't come with a large group, but for 2 or 3 people it's perfect. Delicious food, however I seemed to know more about the food than the staff. I feel like the...

We had breakfast: sourdough bread with scrambled eggs with a cappuccino. Freshly prepared and very tasteful! It is crowded in the bakery and there are limited places to sit. Broad variety of choice is bakery, fruit and yoghurt. Ideal for a quick and tasty breakfast!

I walked into the Crouch end branch for a coffee and cake. Despite it being an eat in order, coffee was served in disposable cups. The cake too arrived with one set of disposable cutlery to be shared between two people. Last but not the least, they didn't even have a high-chair for my toddler who could barely reach his... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
