Ben's Cookies **
Ben's Cookies has many locations throughout London and definitely worth a visit for gourmet cookies. Ben's Cookies is known to use fresh ingredients of pure chocolates, unsalted butter, sugar, free-range eggs and wheat all from local producers. Crisp on the outside, but soft and chewy inside, with gigantic chunks of melted chocolate.
A great reasonable lunch spot with healthy, artisan food. If you're in a rush grab one of the premade salads, sandwiches, or soups. With more time, I definitely recommend custom making your own sandwich. Benugo offers a wide variety of breads, meats, veggies, and spreads so you can create your own personal sandwich. At some locations students receive a 20% discount.
Comptoir Libanais is a casual, vibrant, and colorful restaurant serving modern Lebanese home-style dishes. There are many different menu options including, dips, mezee bites (finger foods), homemade flatbreads, tagines, wraps, salads, and pastries. They also serve homemade lemonades.
Hummingbird bakery serves handmade American style cupcakes, cakes, pies, and brownies. It also has a great selection of teas and coffees. The most popular item is the red velvet cupcake.
A cozy cafe that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. L'eto Caffe is known for their handmade cakes, but it also serves fresh salads and mains that can either be eaten in or taken to go.
A chain restaurant located throughout London. The menu offers many different options to prepare your pizza, from classic to calzone to romana. There is even a section of pizzas under 500 calories with a side salad placed in the middle of the pizza. Great gluten free options as well (gluten free pizza dough). I recommend going here with a big group looking for a fun dinner out but not too expensive.
