A 5-min. walk from the British Museum and handy for many uses—big breakfasts, lunches, dinner, tea with scones and clotted cream, feeding kids, or downing cheap cocktails. In few other London establishments will you find mac-and-cheese, burgers, pecan pie, and Caesar salad on the same menu. It’s a lifesaver when you’re in need of drama-free, family-friendly grub served briskly, which is why you’ll be glad to hear there are also locations near Piccadilly Circus (36–44 Brewer St., W1), off the Long Acre shopping street (St Martin’s Courtyard, WC2), in Southwark (Victor Wharf, Clink St., SE1) and not far south of Buckingham Palace (6 Cathedral Walk, SW1). The afternoon tea is around £11 and not half bad, plus there’s free Wi-Fi.
