The Pound

The address for this chic little cafe is mildly misleading, as it's actually just off the razmataz end of Chapel, marked by dinky little plastic streetside stools. It adheres to the stainless steel and glass school of architectural simplicity, and make the most of the bar's feature wall, laden with coffee bags and bottle sparkling water. Good food done simply is key, but if you're distracted by the sound of clicking heels at lunch, this aint the place for you, but a more relaxed vibe takes hold at the weekends.
