While working in London for 6 weeks, I would start everyday with a coffee, and a treat from Gail's in Soho. The food was seriously fresh, the coffee made precisely as ordered, and the staff were wonderful. I miss them!!!

Coffee is good but they baked goods and hot breakfast options are fantastic. It gets busy in the morning but the French toast with mounds of bacon is worth the wait!! Several locations throughout London, but the soho one is he one we liked best

An artisan bakery doing a wonderful assortment of bread, pasteries, baguettes and salads. A friendly environment with great service. Coffee was also quite good

The baked goods at Gail's is always good. The ream that works here is informed and friendly. The challenge at this location is that it is typically quite busy, and the space is small, so it can be very hectic when visiting.

Sat down at a table full of dirty plates etc. Young guy comes over mumbling takes a few items away left half. 30 minutes later we left the staff too busy having a chat and a laugh to serve. Shame beautifully done out!

Thought it might have been a bit more down to earth when we looked at the exterior but the inside had obviously been rigorously thought through. It’s good to see the piles of pastries and cake. A bit of bustle is not too bad but...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
