Relaxed and cosy cafe only 3 minutes from my home, but pretty easy to get to from most of London via Northern line.  The decor is stylish but not too modern or minimal. It fells really comfortable.

Lunch menu is very traditional and typical of many a cafe or pub lunch menu. Freshly prepared wraps, sandwiches, baps and baguettes (they have delicious fillings that are a cut above. Good choice of Burgers with extras available and served with a lovely newspaper lined metal wire basket full of delicious fluffy and crispy chips (all home made). Alongside delicious rich fair trade coffees on the drink menu are bottled beers, wines and a selection of classic cocktails. The atmosphere is lovely and it was surprisingly busy for a weekday lunchtime. Great place to meet friends for coffee and so much more personal than Cafe Nero and Starbucks across the road. Also perfect for a romantic little date. it’s the sort of place that will put you at you ease but it still feels special.

Dinner is a little more of an upmarket affair, though sticking to the rustic theme. It has a lovely hearty Mediteranean feel. The steaks looked delicious as did generally, all of the food!

Caesar salad at Nichols Restaurant in Marina del Rey, California. :Comment: “A far cry from the original ;]]” — ONE of many variations. See e.g. Doral Chenoweth on this. As an eye-catcher in Caesar salad, it should be replaced by something like this, as soon as available. — any IP 12:43, 30 July 2007 (UTC) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Lovely cosy country-esque pub in between Clapham South and Clapham Common.

Open fire, open both sides which helps you kid yourself you’ve been on a long walk in the hills before snuggling down in a Yorkshire pub. Delicious traditional British pub food, with about seven regularly changing specials. The beef pie with mash was particularly scrumptious with big hunk of of tender rumps steak. I had the burger and added Stilton and Chorizo, the burger was huge and rare and yum and the extras were yummy. If it were me though i would have sizzled the Chorizo in a pan. The Bun was dry and plastic, it fell apart quite rapidly and the chips, admittedly hand-cut, were soggy. they needed about 5 more mins. Nice choice of Beers and you can get pudding for £3 extra on top of a pudding. A nice weekday lunch.
