SquareMeal Review of
Damson & Co
Another independent café/deli to swell Soho’s treasure chest, Damson & Co is a charming prospect offering all-day breakfasts, tempting sharing plates and serious English drinks. With its
slate-grey walls hung with clipboard menus, and a polished wooden bar piled with homemade cakes and sandwiches, the cosy, contemporary dining room has plenty of magazine-strewn counter space for
lone rangers – plus a few small tables for off-duty socialisers. A boppy pop soundtrack plays as laid-back staff deliver plates of Brit-sourced charcuterie (perhaps wild venison chorizo), artisan
cheeses (Yorkshire Buffalo Blue, for example) and the pick of the catch from the South Coast Boats (look for native oysters). Otherwise try moreish flatbread pizzas and zingy salads. Fresh juices
are a perfect daytime pick-me-up, while quintessential G&Ts based on London gins such as Oxley, No. 3 and Portobello Road are perfect come the witching hour.
