Square Meal Review of Cafe Gourmand ?

Café Gourmand is a little haven of nouveau-rustic French charms aimed squarely at the mobile Soho crowd – an endearing drop-in with a few stools by the high counter, a big communal table at the back and a couple of berths outside. Food revolves around ready-made staples in display cabinets, plus a blackboard menu of Gallic classics, breakfasts and snacks for those on the go – think croque monsieur, tartines (open sandwiches), soupe à l’oignon and more substantial offerings in the mould of cassoulet or coq au vin. After that, crème brûlée, French apple tart, chocolate mousse and other dainty treats hit the sweet spot, while Monmouth Coffee provides the obligatory caffeine fix. There are plans to open in the evening sometime soon.

    Sunday Cinnamon :: Café Gourmand, review.

    In London on business, lunch-time fastly approaching, my colleague directs us through Soho, down a side street and we fall into his favourite lunch-time haunt, Café Gourmand. A tiny little French bistro where everything sold is home-made on site, a selection of mouth watering avant-garde cakes and pastries fill the window, with boards of hand made tarts and mini puff pies donning the counter. The menu is perfect and simple, fast healthy wholesome choices such as omelette with your choice of fillings and a luscious green side salad, or one of the mini puff pies with velvety mash and salad or greens...

  2. If you’re after a cosy little coffee and pastry place, then head to Soho to the French-owned Café Gourmand. You probably cannot get more Parisian in London than in this charming café with its vintage frontage, marble display and communal table (ok, a modern invention for the lonely urban crowd). I stopped by for an afternoon treat of Monmouth coffee and Pain aux Pommes. They do lunch too, think Roastbeef sandwiches or Coq au Vin, and hearty snacks all-day, think Tartine au Chevre or Provencal Tomato Farci. At nighttime the place turns into a bistro with a daily changing menu. Find it – love it...
