Comptoir Libanais

I happened upon this rather delicious looking cafe the other day on way up to Selfridges. The food looked Turkish and The Grandad had been hankering after some, so we revisited ensemble. On closer inspection it is actually Lebanese cuisine, but was still what we were after, some felafal, pickles, wraps, a nice meze. I had a nice fresh pomegranate lemonade and the felafal wrap, could have done with some more chilli sauce but thats just me, and they may well offer it on the side. They sell little plates of lovely things to make up a meze with fresh tabbouleh or salad, along with sweet treats like baklava or mouthwateringly good looking macaroons for a bargain £1.50. The mosaic deco is clean and lean and there are nice treats for sale in the deli / shop like Turkish coffee, or delight and harissa YUM. I'd say worth a visit even if it's just for a mint tea between Selfridges and Top Shop.

I love this place, especially the lemonade (I've also had the mint lemonade and it was lovely) and falafel and chilli sauce - although they are a bit mean with it! I'm hungry now!

I'm going back. And asking for extra chilli sauce – in my lemonade. Maybe we could go together?
