London

With the opening of The Vincent—a tremendously likeable, all-day eatery—Hackney’s army of creative types have a new place to make their unofficial HQ.
The Book Club
The Book Club in Shoreditch - a cafe, bar, and events space - is the millennial iteration of traditional European café culture - but with ping pong.
The National Cafe
The Dining Rooms in the National Gallery and the Portrait Gallery next door provide surprisingly stylish spaces for slap-up lunches and afternoon tea.
Maison Bertaux
Maison Bertaux is a hippy Soho hangout full of character and characters, not least the eccentric staff as well as strong coffees and teas.
Truc Vert

Tokyo Diner
This dining room is simply furnished and offers a dependable array of Japanese dishes.
