James Rotisserie and Cafe

21 James Street

I used to live on James Street, back in my student days, so it holds fond memories. It's certainly changed a lot since then - this cute cafe was certainly not part of the landscape. F and I were having a wander around Marylebone and ended up here to get a snack and some hot drinks - she got a hot chocolate and an apricot danish, and I had the pain au chocolat above. It was served warm, though I suspect it was microwaved. Flaky, buttery and with rich dark chocolate in every bite, it was sweet refuge from the cold downpour outside. I seem to remember a lot of gilded birdcages in the cafe as well - a touch of whimsy.
