Square Meal Review of City Caphe ?

Tiny, inconspicuous & only open at lunchtimes, this Vietnamese café tucked down a narrow lane near the Guildhall is nevertheless ‘a welcome addition to the Square Mile’. The setting is colourful & canteen-like, with red stools, a few tables & family snaps on the yellow walls, while the menu is short & to the point: ‘reasonably priced’, French-inspired bánh mì baguettes are the star turns, with fillings ranging from roast pork, chicken & beef to tofu. Otherwise, the kitchen rolls out gutsy street food along the lines of spicy lemongrass noodle soup, classic pho, summer rolls & vermicelli salads. To drink, it has to be Vietnamese coffee (cà phê), served iced or hot. You can eat in or takeaway, but be prepared to queue when the rush is on.

  1. City Càphê has been on my to eat list for a few years. I didn’t realise Bank was only minutes away from St Pauls where I work. Hidden on a side street along ironmonger, queues usually form as soon as it hits 1pm. Julie and her family run City Càphê, the menu on offer is very simple, popular Vietnamese street food. Banh mi’s, pho, bun, summer rolls, and spring rolls. Now that I’ve been here many times, the best comfort winter warmers are the steaming hot beef pho...
