I love this place. It's out of the hubbub of the West End, it's civilised, arty, they have good coffee and it's a great place to sit and have a chat if you're out and about in town.

Of all the places I've been in London, walking into the Café at Foyles is like a direct connect right back to Burnside, staring into a window of a cozy coffee shop near Powell's. So all in all, this place is heaven.

I went for the homemade Jaffa Cake and free wifi.

I didn't manage to get either.

Despite this, the Cafe at Foyles was all right. It has a purposefully rough-around-the-edges vibe with battered wooden tables and chairs scattered about in the rather large space allocated for the caf inside Foyles on its third floor. The windows overlooking Charing Cross Road offered customers opting to sit...more
