A little piece of Provence in W1, Aubaine Marylebone believes that ‘simplicity is beautiful’. A bistro, boulangerie and patisserie all under one roof, it sits snugly alongside the boutiques of Marylebone High Street and makes a relaxed spot for a business meeting or private celebration. Groups of up to 80 can hire the place exclusively for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. Bread is a speciality and, freshly made on site every day, the baguettes, pains au chocolat and croissants are all outstanding. Come dinnertime, the focus is on seasonal produce presented with a minimum of fuss. Look out in particular for the eggs royale and filet de boeuf.
