L'Eto Caffe - Soho
L'eto Caffe are Wardour Street newcomers and the most recent addition to the Soho coffee scene.
I'm in 2 minds about it to be honest. The counter type displays, akin to those at Princi just down the road are inviting. At first the salads and mains were in the window, this has recently changed and now passersby are lured by a mouthwatering array of sweet treats.
I've been twice for lunch and for £5.50 you can get a small plate of salads, there are usually a selection of around 5 or 6 to pick and mix from. A main course like chicken breast in tomato sauce, baked salmon or lasagna, plus a side is a hefty £12. It is good food but at these prices it's unlikely to secure many return visitors for lunch but the quality is above average and ingredients are thoughtfully sourced. I particularly liked the pesto mozzarella.
I'm yet to try their breakfasts but the large chalkboard menu reads very well with the usual eggy suspects as well as pancakes and healthy options.
After my initial visit in their first week when I encountered some bizarre service, things seem to have improved and servers are sweet and helpful.
