Cafe Sou at The Ned
Part of sprawling City hotel and dining complex The Ned, Café Sou is a traditional Parisian-inspired café that specialises in classic French dishes. In keeping with The Ned’s 1930’s aesthetic, the intimate space features marbled tiles that match the emerald columns dotted around the floor, and long communal tables with vintage-style stools. Unlike its stablemates Cecconi’s and Millie’s Lounge, Café Sou is geared towards the lunchtime crowd, serving a short menu featuring the likes of cooked-to-order omelettes, quiches and salads. From the counter, we ordered a whole baguette (half and quarter portions are also available) stuffed with cold-cuts of chicken, smooth avocado and fresh spinach. A rainbow salad featuring carottes rapées, poppy seed and orange mayonnaise made for a suitable side, while colourful cold-press cleansing juices court the Instagram crowd. Amongst stiff competition in the City, Café Sou is a good shout for a quick lunch in glamorous surrounds. Haven’t got the time to wait? Takeaway is available too.
