Mayfair has the distinguished air of rich suburbia – while busy, once departing the main street for the maze of alleyways, everything seems laid back, posh, and rather cheery on a sunny day. What better moment than this to go grab some nice food at Cafe Mish?

Disclaimer: I was invited to review Cafe Mish. Queue usual blah about how all the opinions are my own (as if anyone would ever admit otherwise).
The compact space in which Cafe Mish is located reminds me much of Japan (and, considering you probably have to pay a kidney and half per square metre in Mayfair, is completely understandable). The cafe is bustling with clients during lunch time, I am told, but I personally loved that only me and my sis were there during the afternoon.
The salt beef sandwich (£9.75 for medium)- highly recommended by the staff member there who swears it is now an integral part of her diet – was delicious. The meat was tender, the bread was soft, and the gherkins and dijonnaise added a great kick and flavour. The small, medium and large refers to whether you want 100g, 150g or 200g of meat put inside.
The wild mushroom sandwich (£6.75) smelled incredibly – really the way you would love something that has mushrooms in it to do. The cheese was bountiful, and we ordered a side of batata harra wedges (£2.00) and one of the mish chips (£1.50). The crisps were also quite delicious, and the chai latte ordered by Ioana was sweet and fragrant. If I worked around here, it would definitely be a spot I would come to get some lunch – great food, decent prices given the neighborhood. And lovely staff as well.
