    Saffron Cafe: Lebanese

    by leics Updated Sep 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very nice indeed, and not over-expensive.

    My fried potatoes with chilli and spices were not too hot, and just right for a quick lunch. Service was pleasant and friendly.

    Sicilian Avenue is a really pleasant pace to sit outside and eat........there are several options. It is particularly good if you are visiting the British Museum, because it is only a few minutes' walk yet well away from the tourist-focused cafes and pubs in the area right next to the museum itself.

    Address: Sicilian Avenue, off Blomsbury Way

    Directions: Sicilian avenue runs from Bloomsbury Way to Southampton Row. It is pedestrian-only.
