"Nestled" in the tube station of Willesden Green, this aspirational but ultimately bland cafe is rendered beautiful by a bit of sunshine. The prime seats outside are rammed with people leisurely breakfasting (Germans have a verb for 'to have breakfast') and no one seems to mind the almost openly hostile staff who can barely contain their distain at having to work. To be fair, who can blame them. It's a nice place to pour over Tuesday's magazine offerings, such as the just launched TV Pick or this amazing OK Icons spread on Joan Crawford.

An regular Americano costs £1.90
