Needs to have good veggie options and not be hideously expensive. Thanks!

Pretty please?

With kids or without?

Without I would say Patisserie Valerie in Old Compton St. Cakes are fabulous and plenty of lunch options too.

With - but older and well behaved. Googling now; thanks!

Mildreds in Soho is fantastic, marvellous cakes and not too overpriced.

Thank you. Googling some more!

For something more substantial, Masala Zone on Marshall St does yummy Indian food, or Leon on Carnaby St does nice poncy organic food.

Just been looking at Leon and then saw this! Masala Zone sounds good too. Thanks.

Bump for the 'Sunday-girls' (have been listening to Blondie!).

There's a Primrose Bakery in C Garden now too here

If you're coming in quite soon, I saw that kids eat free at Loch Fyne Oyster Bar in August

Thanks. Primrose Bakery looks like dd1's dream place! Is it a sit down cafe, or just a counter, do you know?

We are veggie, so oyster bar probably no use!

It is sit down but not too many tables.

Realised you were veggie after I posted blush. Would recommend Leon too.

janeite Sun 23-Aug-09 18:02:34

Lovely - lots of choices. May do Leon for lunch and cupcakes for afters, although am v tempted by Masala Zone too!

Final bump for fresh ideas - we're going tomorrow.

Thank you to Meg - we went to Masala Zone (the one in Covent Garden) and it was lovely. And then we had Earl grey and cupcakes at the Wellcome Collection (fabbo medical exhibition - I highly recommend it, although dd was a bit freaked out).

Have saved this thread for future reference - thanks all.
