Aux Pains de Papy is a perfect French boulangerie that displays varieties of delicious breads, croissants, pastries and more. Everything that they offer here is made fresh every morning using authentic French standards. The ambiance at Aux Pains de Papy is very cozy and the decor with its wooded flooring and yellow lights gives the place a rustic charm. Their staff is very polite and extremely friendly which enhances the overall experience here. They have limited seating, so the best way to enjoy their coffees and baguettes is by taking them out and devouring them at the nearby park.

Tucked away behind King's Cross Thameslink Station, this café/restaurant/bar is located in an unusual converted Victorian warehouse setting, a previously derelict mechanic's workshop. With a huge picture of a train entering a station covering one wall, it has a pleasant atmosphere and good wine list. Popular with local workers, it serves a seasonal lunch menu on weekdays with excellent tapas in the evenings; take your pick from Char-grilled Haloumi in Vine Leaf and Chicken Satay with Peanut Dip, or select any four for a reasonable price.
Smithy's restaurant and wine bar is situated in a picturesque stone-walled building, adorned with attractive flower pots. Indulge in classic European fare and a selection of finely crafted wines. Although the decor is decidedly Victorian, they have amazing facilities for hosting events and weddings, such as DVDs, projectors, buffet, cake-making and catering services. Smithy's can also obtain a license till 3a for late-night parties.

The Acorn House Restaurant at the King's Cross area in London is an environment friendly choice for those who believe in all things organic. The simple and clean, albeit slightly cramped interiors and friendly service are the things you first notice about the place. Food made from fresh, seasonal produce, an on-site water purifier and the health conscious menu leave a stronger mark. Soups, sandwiches, meat and fish mains, cured meats and lots more feature on the menu. A portion of the proceeds are forwarded to charitable ventures for ecological welfare as well as the well-being of local producers.
Stylishly furnished with slick wooden floors, soft wall-colors and an inviting facade, Balfour immediately meets the eye as a place to be. For example, a very reasonable GBP 7.95 lunch special is an undeniably excellent value (and gets you very full). Get there early, or even better, call ahead to reserve a table. A word of warning though, the evening menu is not such a good deal, though the food is of better quality. The menu has a good variety of choices and there is a good selection of wines, which match perfectly.
Tucked in the side streets just off of busy Euston Road, Caprice offers a relaxing social experience that is just a short walk from the station. Decorated with cool colors, the serene interior is embellished with the blooming greenery of potted plants paired with the vibrant paintings on the walls. A choice of sumptuous hot and cold Mediterranean dishes can be enjoyed in the affable indoor area or on the fringes of the open veranda. A café-style restaurant, Caprice is as convenient for grabbing a quick lunchtime panini as it is ideal for a relaxing business meal in the evening. And all at exceptionally reasonable prices.
Conveniently situated near to Euston Station, Mai Sushi is easy to find - and what a find this quaint Japanese restaurant is! The décor may be basic, but guests are greeted with warm friendly service, and the relaxing environment is complemented by exquisite food and great value for money. The usual sushi suspects are on offer together with soup and desserts.
Situated a short walk from Euston Station, Red Hot does exactly what it says on the tin - hot and spicy is the order of the day. The authentic Szechuan menu has exotic recipes, though patrons should keep an open mind when ordering. How about marinated ox-haslet or pig's ears in chilli oil for starters followed by chicken and crispy lotus roots or deep fried intestines with red and green pepper. Or you may prefer Szechuan style blood mix. But don't worry, if you're not so adventurous there are ordinary recipes with chicken, beef, prawn and sea bass to choose from. The portions are big and very filling so if you don't have a huge appetite share a main and take a bowl of rice each.
At Woburn walk is a cobbled thoroughfare with the old-worldly charms of London’s ‘once upon a time’ backstreets. There you will find a number of cafes nestled together like something resembling a Victorian novel, Charles Dickens for example. And it's perhaps this impression that inspired the owners of Wot the Dickens to call their quaint deli after the prolific English author. Sandwich and baguettes are available with a variety of delicious fillings. Though the café is geared towards takeaway, there are tables and chairs outside, so if it’s a nice day, why not be at one with a bygone era.
