SquareMeal Review of
Chic all-dayer Aubaine takes advantage of French café culture’s hold over romance-starved Anglo-Saxons. Baskets of pain de campagne, subtly distressed wooden furniture and soft, flattering lighting would be enough to impress most people, even without the menu of breads, patisserie and viennoiserie, macarons, mille-feuilles and financiers… it’s enough to make you want to cough up six quid for a cup of Mariage Frères tea. But this mini chain of urbane cafés isn’t just good for a caffeine and sugar fix: breakfast and brunch gives way to a menu of fashionable Med-influenced fare, for example roast sea bass with Kalamata olives and lemon oil, lobster spaghetti or Superfood salad with quinoa, beetroot and roast butternut squash. They’re licensed too and, surprisingly, have some global wines slotted in amongst the French contingent.
