Working slap bang in the middle of London’s Soho, we are insanely spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat, drink and be merry. But, being Soho, a lot of these establishments are victims of their own success, employing people that are so too-cool-for-school they’ve completely lost sight of their actual job – to be nice to people as they serve them good food. Whilst we love munching on our brown rice sushi and our laden ciabattas, it sure tastes nicer served up with a healthy dose of friendly service.
So here’s to Nice Places. Places where service comes with a smile that reaches the eyes. Places where your order is taken and nurtured. Places where a great sandwich costs only £3… Yeah ok. maybe not the last bit, but hey, there’s no harm in wishful thinking.
Anyhow, we thought we’d make it a regular spot on the blog. Everyone loves a recommendation plus it gives us an excuse to try out a few more places.
The first nice place isn’t an obvious choice (global coffee chain) but they hit the nail on the head. As suggested by our HR assistant Alice, “Vida e Caffé on Golden Square is a super friendly place. Serving great coffee, frappes and delicious treats, they’re always happy and lovely and know my order off by heart (clearly evidence that I go there way too much).”
