Fleet River Bakery Just Around the Corner
Literally right around the corner of my hotel is Fleet River Bakery. Upon entry it appears only to be made up of a coffee island and main bar with baskets of sandwiches, salads and cakes. But it extends to other rooms filled with wooden furniture and leather stools. Popular among the lawyers and business workers during weekdays, it's best to visit in the mid-morning or mid-afternoon to avoid the crowds. However the selection and availability of food choices will matter upon the time of day you visit.
Located just off Lincoln's Inn Fields, you could grab something at Fleet River and enjoy it in the large, quiet open space on a sunny day. It's a perfect alternative to the chain eateries nearby on the main thoroughfares of High Holborn or Kingsway catering to the business crowds.
