The World Cafe - N8
by Chartreuse 12/5/2011 18.11

Interior of World Cafe N8 with cake display on the left, wooden tables with mirror on the wall behind.It looks loved. Childlike stars hang from the spotlights, and there is starlight on the ceiling cast by the cut-outs in the shades over the counter. There are lilies in a tall metal vase on the glass cake display. Hanging on the pale orange painted, plaster walls are a colourful boy, a Mondrian, and a painting of the café. Its relaxingly rustic feel may be due to the wooden tables, chairs, floor, and mirror frame rising up with wall and topped with a fleur-de-lis. The chalkboard helps too.

The service is quiet, friendly and professional, the menu delicious, resonably priced and adaptable to gluten and dairy-free. Red candles on the tables and instrumental music create intimacy for families, couples and friends. Two windowed aspects show tables outside and the Church Studios beyond. At that moment our stretch of glass offered the scene of a kindly-looking older lady who had been standing by the kerb for a few minutes being collected by her son/grandson. She eased into his black car and kissed him on the cheek and he looked happy. Something of the flavour of the World Café. A little wait, a little service, a little pleasure.
