A maxi-adventure: Part II: Fernandez and Wells

To walk off the full bellies after Borough Market we headed to the Vanity Fair exhibition at the National Portrait gallery. It took us just long enough to work up a bit of a hunger and the need for a caffeine hit, so off we toddled to Soho to Fernandez and Wells

This is a Spanish-Kiwi venture whose coffee and slow food ethos have made it a popular sandwich destination despite their rather hefty price. It's got the feel of a Melbourne coffee shop with white-washed walls, lots of wood and a busy but friendly atmosphere. And there are jugs of tap water readily available! It's quirkily located in two spots, one on Beak St and the other, round the corner on Lexington.

The much-needed caffeine hit, I haven't asked for a flat-white since I was in Sydney!

I think sandwiches are my favourite food, well one of, anyway..
