I had walked past Arthur Probsthain - Oriental & African Bookseller on Great Russell Street many times but had never been in. What finally got me in there was noticing a sign for Tea & Tattle, the tea room downstairs. I had a really good flat white (made with Monmouth beans I think) and a delicious danish pastry. The surroundings are "old fashioned tea room with a twist" - which is fine with me. I also checked out the bookshop upstairs which as well as a wide range of interesting books with an Oriental or African theme, had some interesting artwork for sale. I love this precinct - there are some great places within walking distance of the British Museum (as well as some tourist-targeted crap) and Arthur Probsthain and Tea & Tattle downstairs are definitely in this category.
