Le Pain Quotidien
The venue itself is a welcome change from the fluorescent lights of the offices and shopping center surrounding; inside it's decorated with wooden features, mirrored windows, and classical music - giving it a nice atmosphere. It's surprisingly spacious, and you can easily find a space for an prompt meeting after lunch. That said, service can be slow, and the flat white I ordered was among the worse I ever had. The scone was also more omelette tasting than scone, it arrived hot, and the whippy cream they serve just melted instantly; disappointing since it cost £5 and there are far better for far cheaper elsewhere in London. It's one of the few places you could get a cream tea at Canary Wharf without going to a hotel. With some staff training they could really up the quality and justify the high prices.
