Rovin’ in Fitzrovia

Reynolds cafe, Charlotte Street

Reynolds: small portions but perfectly formed

Food find of the day? Cute cafe Reynolds on Charlotte Street. An independent cafe that sells delicious homemade food in non-overwhelming portions.

It was the blackboard out front that lured me in, with its promise of fresh soup, quiches and salads. Throw in a cheerful birdies logo, and I was straight through that door.

And what a revelation! Wraps and mini quiches in just the right size NOT to over-fill. As Reynolds explains, ‘We don’t believe in three square meals a day. We like to eat little and often. That’s why you’ll find our foody items come in smaller portions.

What a refreshing attitude. And what more-ish food. Today’s soup option was tomato and basil (lip-smacking) while mozzarella and prosciutto focaccia slipped down a treat. A neighbourhood gem.

Fernandez &Wells, Beak Street

Fernandez&Wells, Beak Street

Lunch – we love lunch! And lucky for us, being in central Soho gives myriad grazing options. So many, in fact, we sometimes wonder which delicious cafe to visit next.

Fernandez and Wells in Beak Street (just one of several branches) is a favourite. Friendly staff, drop-dead-gorgeous sandwiches, soups and pannini plus knock-your-socks-off coffee and homemade cakes that rival the ones your mum makes. Today’s fave bake: plum Victoria sponge that looked like it had come straight from Mary Berry’s kitchen. Yes, cake is good for you if it’s homemade, everyone knows that, right?

Definitely feelgood and highly recommended.
