Whether you’re trying to escape the burning steppe sun or its blustery winds, Rafè is a good hangout for pleasure-seekers at any time of year. It caters to all ages, offering something more often found in North London, the infamous babyccino (cappuccino without the coffee). White leather armchairs and wood-panelled walls make for a rather sleek setting. Add to this backlit panels of rainforest scenery on the ceiling and the large windows on the front and you will find you are in a pleasantly tropical, modern, airy space. A minimalist display of books in a variety of languages ranging from Harry Potter to a biography of Princess Diana might entice you to stay longer than you had planned. Actually, the friendly staff, good menu and impressive exhibit of cakes might also have something to do with that.
