Cafe – fantastic display of Brioche on this newly opened tea room on London’s Regent St

On my way to lunch at the much lauded Brasserie Zedel, more of which later, I was stopped in my tracks by the brioche display at the newly opened Cafe which seems to be part of the revamped Café Royal Hotel.

Such a simple window display and yet so striking, the hotel was redesigned by David Chipperfield and the cafe looks as if it must have been too with slick marble counters inside and an array of mouthwatering pastries displayed in minimal cabinets.

The oversized brioche display carried on for the whole front and to the side of the Regent St windows and just looked so striking against the simple French cafe curtains.

As for Brasserie Zedel, it is just brilliant, completely feels as if you are in Paris and the Art Deco style carpets and raised wallpaper print on the steps leading down are a perfect foil to the cavernous restaurant interior underground. It was heaving on a Tuesday lunchtime so make sure you book if you are planning on a visit soon.

Inside the Cafe there is an equally mouthwatering but minimal display of baked goodies in lit rectangular cabinets.
