A true Soho institution, serving traditional French classics for more than 25 years. When you end up in Soho, without any plans or reservations, Cafe Boheme is the go-to place. Cafe Boheme went through a refurbishment recently but we are happy to report that nothing has changed since it was first opened by Nick Jones (the man behind Soho House) in 1992. Its charming, always welcoming and a characterful place to hang out.
Food here isn’t the best you will find in Soho. Its all day (and late night) menu is very traditionally French, although a little attention is given to plant-based diners. We find Cafe Boheme is a great place for brunch on Saturday. Choose from the breakfast menu, as it includes a few vegan options (clearly marked pb). Veggie breakfast is very generous with avocado, a massive grilled tomato, portobello mushrooms and poached eggs - you know the rest. As you are enjoying your healthy breakfast, the jazz band starts playing and Soho starts to slowly wake up. An older gentleman turns up, alone, orders his croque monsieur with a glass of white wine. Seems like the same way he has done for the past 25 years.

This is going to sound controversial, but we prefer to go for breakfast. Cafe Boheme is at its best when the sun is out and chic Londoner’s fill its al fresco tables for a carafe of white wine.
