London House of Coffee is a very nice and thoughtfully decorated cafe with a British theme. A very good seating arrangement with vintage decor, books on the shelves and the piano. When we walked to the second floor, there was a pianist performing and it was very relaxing.
After a few minutes of settling in and finding comfortable armchairs, we were ready to order. The waiter almost immediately brought us a menu but took an awfully long time to get back to us to take our order.
When he finally came, the waiter either didn’t understand English or didn’t have the ability to listen. He got our order wrong several times. When we asked for coffee without milk he kept repeating coffee with milk. We asked for tea and he thought we are ordering an apple pie…maybe they are famous for apple pie. It was bizarre that he got that wrong as well. Eventually, we had medium-roasted coffee and Earl Grey tea.
They don’t offer vegan options and the only we could order was a salad with two slices of bread but it was nice and fulfilling.
Overall, it’s a nice place for relaxing, to read a book or just for a good cup of coffee.
