National Geographic Café, Regent StreetPosted in Where to Eat & Drink Now
For a place to escape amidst the bustle of Regent Street, the National Geographic Café is a little haven in a retail storm. Never mind the fact it's got an uber large retail emporium tacked on to it, the café is a little gem.
Friendly waiting staff will let you sit with a coffee for ages and not rush you. We popped in for a quick coffee and a fruit juice to sooth our retail-worn feet and couldn’t have picked a better place.
The bright and airy café does serve food and at reasonable prices for what is essentially a tourist trap location. And the National Geographic Café makes a point of offering food from around the world with top ingredients. Delights such as proscuitto with parmesan and truffled mushrooms will take the edge off.
Add this to the people watching and my attention is utterly captured. Watching tourists on their quest to find Abercrombie and Fitch is all the easier with a freshly pressed juice. And when you have rested the soul and the soles, pop your head into the National Geographic Store. You know you want to.

Choose a late lunch or head over mid afternoon for a coffee. The horsed are well on their way over to Uniqlo by this time.
