This small, cosy coffee shop at the Claridge’s Hotel is nearly always packed out with locals and government types. The menu is huge and adventurous. The mushroom soup is made with wild forest mushrooms and even the tomato soup comes with puy lentils. Though it is a convenient place for a quick coffee, try the food – standards can be very high. And no, there is no connection to David Copperfield or Mr. Pickwick or any Dickens characters.
