Fancying a girls night out, my friend Mary and I went to L’Eto Caffe on King’s Road last night. From the shop window, the pastries look delicious and very tempting. There is also a buffet table and truffle bar at the front of the caffe and everything is available for either takeaway or dining in.
So was the food as good as it looked? I ordered the soup of the day – lentil (£9) which was delicious but overly priced for what I received. Both Mary and I had fresh juice priced at £3,30 and £3,90 that were mediocre (not well blended or flavourful).
And of course I’m sure you’re wondering about those beautiful desserts from the window display. We ordered a chocolate cinnamon cake and a lemon almond cake to go and headed back to Mary’s flat for some girl talk and wine. The lemon almond cake had a delicious filling but unfortunately the cake itself was dried out and the chocolate cinnamon cake was moist but nothing to write home about.
Would I recommend a visit to the L’Eto Caffe?
No. Unfortunately the food is too highly priced for the value you receive. There is a certain charm inside the caffe but you would be better off finding another caffe whether on King’s Road or in one of the numerous other offerings in London.
