This spot on St John’s Wood High Street is an absolutely faithful reproduction of someone’s slightly faded memory of a café they visited in Paris when they were on their French exchange. In fact it’s so faithful a reproduction it would feel like a naff theme restaurant if it wasn’t actually quite good at what it does. Granted, we’ve never seen a ‘super green salad’ on offer in any of the legendary cafés on the boulevard Montparnasse, but, if you want to catch up with friends or take your grandparents out for a decent steak frites with béarnaise sauce and a frankly excellent salted caramel éclair, you could do far worse than this place.
