I went for the homemade Jaffa Cake and free wifi.

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
