Cafe Milan, Shaftesbury Avenue

Visited: Friday 3rd December 2010

Interior: They’ve clearly made an effort here, with shiny tables and funky chairs and a stripped down ‘Italian’ look, but I didn’t like it very much. However, I must say that the counter was very inviting indeed – a genuinely tempting salad bar, bowls of pasta which looked lovely and lots of pastries nicely displayed. So full marks for effort.

Food: I had a jacket potato with cheese and coleslaw and I wasn’t very impressed. The potato wasn’t really hot enough for the (generous portion of) grated cheese to melt and the cold coleslaw on top didn’t help. The side salad was pleasant, but for £3.50 I think I’d expect something a bit more special. On the plus side the tea, similarly pricey at £1.50 per mug, was absolutely lovely. A strong triangular-bag brew,  not too much milk and the bag was left in!
