Tiffins, Leather Lane, EC1

Visited: Wednesday 24th September, 2008

Interior: By far the most prominent of the Leather Lane caffs, Tiffins opens out onto the street displaying its art deco-style black and white floor and generous tiled interior. On the ground floor of a nondescript modern block (Leather Lane has an extraordinary amount of character given that so many of its buildings are modern and utilitarian), a real effort has been made to give it a classy feel.

Food: As its name might imply, Tiffins specialises in international snacks. As well as the usual breakfast and sandwich options, there are Turkish, Indian and Chinese dishes on offer. I opted for the lamb shish wrap which was a little dry but very tasty. My companion had a jacket potato with beans which, when I attempted to finish it for her, was not of the best quality, having that ‘microwave’ quality which makes the skin inedible, but it was very cheap. Service was friendly and efficient but not too suspiciously fast.
