LEON




coffee one – leon

They are lovely. I wish there was one in the West End as expansive as this one in Spitalfields. I tried the new one in (upper) Regent Street today and it was lovely with predictably lovely staff but I really wanted to spread out a bit and stretch my legs

The tight conditions though did have a good effect. I had to share a table with (gasp) a stranger and because I was in Leon and everybody’s so happy and friendly, we couldn’t help just talking as though we weren’t hardened London sociophobes after all. Y’know small talk about what a nice place it is and how good and healthy the food feels, nothing too deep, but a very odd experience for me in that part of W1.

  1. I had a mushroom and tomato thingy and a nice cup of tea in the one near Charing Cross tube the other day. Nice staff, free wifi and really satisfying to sit opposite Starbucks

  2. Oh yes, very good – that was the one where because they didn’t have green tea when I asked for it gave me a couple of extra stamps on my loyalty card in compensation. So simple, but so effective.
