A great place in Soho to indulge! Tea, coffee and delicious fattening cakes!
Spreads, 15a New Row, between Covent Garden and Leicester Square, small café/restaurant, good, reasonably-priced food and pleasant staff – open from early morning for breakfasts until late.
The Stockpot in Panton St, just off Piccadilly has been since the 1950s a legend in its own lunchtime (dinnertime and breakfast time) for its efficient, friendly service, cheap food and music-free atmosphere. But, alas, no longer. Earlier this year, it changed hands. The friendly informality has gone, the prices have gone up and background music has been introduced. Sadly, avoid!
