Princi is where you go in Soho when you need something easy, versatile, and economical. This Italian bakery is legendary for its pastries and coffee, but there’s also a full blown Italian restaurant inside, where you can just as easily sit with an aperitivo and a slice of pizza as you can enjoy a three course meal. Most of the pastas and risottos are £8-9 (and actually good), and it’s also a nice place to sit with a drink and people watch.
