This beautiful, old style cafe on the Grays Inn Road (near Theobalds Rd crossroads) is guess what? Yes - under threat of being knocked down and replaced with luxury flats. Are there any developers out there who aren't bonkers? I mean even the people who move into London's new flats might still like a bit of texture, character and places to go to.
So, pay them a visit and ask for the petition they keep behind the counter and sign it. Fingers crossed! A mug of tea and toasted cheese, tomato and onion sandwich was £3.50 - central London, that's lunch for less than a fiver. You can also drink in the atmosphere and character or sit outside and admire the mosaic frontage.
