The Candid Cafe is one of those places that I love introducing to friends. They are always amazed and delighted to find such a place in London. It’s so unique, with a great mix of people. I have started running a Children’s Book Authors group here twice a week and all my member have said how inspiring and lovely they find the cafe. The candlelight, squashy sofas, huge communal wooden tables, friendly staff and excellent cake have made this one of my favourite places to go. Perfect for everything from a lone writing/reading and coffee session to a group dinner.

Candid café is a small but lively venue. It’s great to go and meet friends. The food is great as they also have vegan options. I love the quirky style about it.
