After spending the morning shopping, you find yourself tired, in need of some food and a coffee. Desperate especially for that coffee. Nearest place, Starbucks. No and no. But it's difficult to find somewhere which has more character about it, so you end up settling for one of the chain cafes.
Next time you find yourself shopping around Oxford Street or Bond Street try L'Amour Encore. Located on a pedestrianised road just off Oxford Street (opposite Debenhams) and Bond Street, with it's dark wood floors,
white walls and chairs it reminds me of summer outdoors. Red paintings on the wall add to that warm feeling.
You can get breakfast and light lunches. There is also a wonderful selection of pastries and of course coffee and tea to accompany a meal. But you are perfectly welcome to just have a drink.
This place makes delightful and welcome break to the chaos of Oxford Street if you are shopping. If you work in the area, a relaxing lunch break.
