Eat at the Passage Cafe

Your author doesn't pretend to be a 'foodie', so if you're fussy you may disagree, but he loved The Passage Cafe, on Jerusalem Passage in Clerkenwell. It is a lovely little French bistro run by Katarina and Pascal Brunet.

Reasonably priced and small enough to warrant a clich├ęd term like 'intimate' the cafe overflows onto the street and the waitress, who your author can only assume is Katrina, rushes around in an attempt to make everyone feel like they are very important, and achieves her aim very well indeed.

Mains are all about a tenner, and are very tasty, and it has a nicely French atmosphere, with the walls sporting a good mix of Toulouse Lautrec prints, vintage Ricard ads and various impressionist prints.

All in all, it's lovely, and the people who are supposed to know about these things tend to agree. The cafe is at 12 Jerusalem Passage EC1V 4JP, and can be called on 0203 217 0090. It is open Tuesday to Friday from 11 am to 11 pm to Saturday 5 pm to 11 pm. For more, visit http://www.thepassagecafe.com/
