Four weeks ago, in London with my lovely friend Georgia. Where to eat?

If it was Friday or weekend, I would have suggested South Bank street food market, but it wasn’t, it was midweek, Wednesday.

Food for Thought was sadly no more.

We could have eaten at the Wild Food Cafe in Neal’s Yard, but I thought try The Black Penny.

I had eaten there before,  bread with roast beef. The beef was good, but I would have preferred without the mustard.

As we were around lunchtime, there was at least a choice.

The pumpkin soup was excellent. The same could not be said of the chickpea salad with roast chicken.

The Black Penny is a coffee shop. We did not try the coffee. I have on a previous occasion, and for a specialist coffee shop, I would have expected far better.

The atmosphere is good. But I cannot recommend either the food or the coffee.

Located on Great Queen Street, halfway between Covent Garden and Holborn.
