Squaremeal Review of Joe's ?

It may be part of the Joseph fashion store, but this über-casual and deliberately cool all-day eatery never seems to do a roaring trade – despite its many attributes. The dining room’s pared-back monochrome decor is punctuated by blood-red chairs, groaning bookshelves and vintage Beatles photos, while the keenly priced menu hops around in a bid to woo South Ken’s fashionistas. Pop in for a coffee and club sandwich or stick around for the full works – perhaps grilled quail breast with truffle and white bean ragoût followed by linguine with clams or grilled rack of Cornish lamb with aubergine caviar and courgette fritta. Healthy salads are a perfect fit for those little black dresses, although calorific desserts come with a very different agenda. Joe’s lacks the bustle you’d want for this kind of easy-going food, but it’s “good for brunch on a rainy day”.

I didn't really know what to expect to be honest; a...

Joe’s Cafe rather under sells itself. It sounds like a builders’ cafe where the dress code is high vis jackets and paint stained trackies. I can assure you that you would not make it through the door dressed like that – despite it being 12 foot wide. Joe’s is actually a subtle and beautiful restaurant. A book case runs through the centre, punctuated with the occasional 50-year-old bottle of wine or Vogue collection from the 80s. The tables are spread out and the service relaxed.
