On Sunday after much adventuring we stopped by Caffe Concerto in Northumberland Avenue, just off Trafalgar Square for a very welcomed treat. Hubby chose coffee, which he declared delicious and as I can’t drink coffee that late in the day, it was 8p.m., I’d have been flying all night with the tawny owls, I settled on a restorative glass of strawberry and prosecco rossini, which was as hoped, delightful. We had gorgeous cakes, after a 7.5 mile hike around London we thought we had earned the calories and a very pleasant hour was spent listening to a duet played on a baby grand and a violin.
I know people whinge about Caffe Concerto as being a tourist trap, but really where else is there in the centre of London that isn’t. The decor is wonderful, we had excellent service, the cakes are lovely, the coffee is good and the prosecco was cold, the atmosphere was just charming and the loos were spotless and they were open for coffee and cake at 8 p.m on a Sunday, what more do you need?
