Today I met a friend for lunch at Cafe Boheme in Soho. I've always really liked Cafe Boheme. I love French food and the menu has always been good and the service just brilliant.
We rocked up not having made a reservation and managed to get a table for two. The staff are always so pleasant and go out of their way to look after you. I love the decor, very smart. I guess the only downside is that the tables and chairs are tightly packed together so there is a little bit of bumping and shoving. But hey, this is Central London and it adds to the atmosphere.
The menu is good and never fails to disappoint. You could still order breakfast along with small plates, sandwiches, salads, dishes that could be starters or main dishes, full on starters and main dishes and puddings. Brilliant. A good mix of classic French cuisine as well as other European and I guess American themed food. Basically you can get a good burger and chips if you want to!
Whilst we purused the menu we ordered a bottle of sparkling water and they brought bread to the table. In the end we ordered an eggs benedict with a green salad as a side and three small plates including smoked salmon blinis, goujons of plaice and vegetable beignets.
The food arrived and looked good. The waitress explained the three small plates along with the dips and sauces that came with it. It really did look good. And tasted great too. The smoked salmon was beautifully cured and the blinis were light and fluffy. The goujons of plaice were perfectly breaded and piping hot. The plaice was fresh and meaty and the tartare sauce perfect. The vegetable beignets were lightly battered and absolutely moreish.
The eggs benedict were brilliant. The eggs were perfectly cooked, nice and runny on to the lightly toasted muffins and of course the ham. The hollandaise sauce was light and the perfect consistency.
We were too full for pudding so we grabbed coffee.
The bill came in at £41.34 including service. Not bad really. I will always go back to Cafe Boheme. Definitely one to check out if you're ever in town.
