With a name like Foxcroft & Ginger, anyone should expect a cafe teeming with spies, Inspector Gadgets and the sorts. As snugly hid as any cafe can be in Soho, there was certainly an atmosphere that made me think of documents exchange, of plotting and all the good stuff really. There were also pretty lights there.

One of the best things about Foxcroft & Ginger is that it’s reasonably empty which is really a wonder in Soho, where it’s as if the coffee shops are scenes from Birds, teeming with people. It’s also one of the few coffee shops that stays open until 9.30 PM, again a wonder in London where after 5 it’s basically “getting pissed” time and tea or coffee have no place there.
They have an enticing assortment of cakes and nibbles, which are a bit more interesting that what you would normally find – but nothing too out of the ordinary. The scone was a tad bit hard (instead of fresh and soft on the inside), and my pistachio cake was tasty but the moment you’d want to dig your spoon in it the cream would just end up everywhere. Not in a good way.
