Our local high street is rapidly turning into a haven for hair and coffee addicts. There are hardly any other shops to be found but coffee and salon chains
How refreshing therefor to stumble across a good old fashioned deli, which has been at the same spot since 1900 and still in the same family. They do a latte these days, but their filter coffee for breakfast is really good and the staff is very welcoming and make you feel like one of the regulars.
You will find Rothe&Son on 35 Marylebone Lane and - as it happens - a lot of nice and independent shops around the area north of Oxford Street.
