Ruskins Cafe, Museum Street

Visited: Saturday 15th November 2009

Interior: Ruskin’s is one of the more attractive cafe options in a somewhat touristy part of London – its tiled interior only slightly marred by bog-standard chairs and tables and a terrible inclination to keep the door open. Unfortunately, the welcome does not match the appearance – our stroppy waitress only temporarily dropped her mobile to bellow that we must collect our drinks ourselves when we attempted to drop our bags at a table.

Food: Beans on toast was one of the more pathetic effort – from its sparse appearance, a mini-tin of Heinz had been shared between two of us. There was barely enough to cover one piece of flabby, soggy toast, let alone four. And no, a slice of cucumber and quarter of a tomato does not make it worth 2.50 each, especially when an ordinary sized cup of tea costs £2. Poor showing all round.
