L’Eto Caffe’, London review

Whilst out in Soho, we stumbled upon this great little
Parisian style-café called L’Eto Caffe’. 
It was the perfect place to hang out as we didn’t want dinner, but did
want a shelter from the rain and to rest our feet after spending over an hour
walking through central London.  
The café was quaint yet chic, and wooed us in with its vast
range of desserts (I said I didn’t want dinner – that doesn’t mean I can have
dessert!).

As well as the array of desserts, the café sold some salads
and cold starters such as aubergine with yoghurt, providing a light, healthy pan-European
meal.  We steered clear of the food as
we’d eaten, but some if it looked really good. 
 
There are branches across London, some of which serve
breakfast and dinner, however, the one we visited on Wardour Street in Soho
just served over the counter food.   However
after ordering at the counter, we were served at our table. 
So here’s what we had:  
Apple and maple syrup dessert at L'Eto Caffe

Rich chocolate cake topped with strawberries and sauce
The apple and maple syrup cake was delicious, but far too
heavy and filling for one person.
The chocolate cake was good, but I felt that the cocoa
powder used was a bit too strong for my palette. 
However, one thing I would say is that the ingredients used
are of good quality, and much better than what you would get at a chain café
such as Starbucks or Costa Coffee.  Also,
there was a much wider range of desserts, from gateaux to tarts and pastries,
much more extensive than your run of the mill coffee shop.
The price isn’t much different either, each dessert was
under £5, while we also had a latte, with the total bill coming under £14.      
If I were to visit again though, I would share a dessert
rather than be greedy and have my own.

L’Eto Caffe’ in a nutshell 

Cost – Under £5
for a dessert.  Savoury dishes between
£5-£10.
Halal – Some
desserts contain alcohol, so be sure to check. 
Meat wasn’t halal, though mainly salad and vegetable options
available.  
Great if… you
want a filling and tasty dessert.
Not so great if…
you want a hot, stodgy meal. This is the place for light bites and afters.
