Bay Leaf Cafe, Tottenham Street, W1

Visited: Friday 5th September 2008

Interior: Standard, modern, stripped down white walls and black furniture, but quite calming and pleasant for that. I’m impressed that they managed to create some very comfortable seating space out of what is basically a counter-serving caff. And menu is impeccably traditional – breafkasts, jackets, sandwiches and hot baked dishes.

Food: I had a manageable full English for a reasonable (for these days) 4.50, including decent bread and really excellent earl grey tea (in a pot). The egg was free range, the bacon was lean (and smoked) and the sausage delicious. My one cavil would be the egg, which was cooked with an immaculately shiny white and runny yolk, with no frizzled edges or crispy bits. It made it feel a bit like an egg on a hotel buffet bar.
