Mount St Deli, which I had read about on Beanhunter as somewhere that did good coffee. I got slightly lost but ended up on Mount Street near The Audley pub (know to the post Ivor Novello Award revellers as the "DisAudley" - if you've been on that particular day you'll know what I'm talking about). Mount Street is Mayfair at it's most pristine and perfect - as well as the aforementioned pub there are some very high end antique shops, the wonderful Scott's restaurant and up a little on the right, the Mount St Deli. I do love a cafe with a grocery section and the Mount Street deli had all manner of deliciousness on display. I ordered a flat white and a quesadilla with taleggio and grilled peppers - the coffee was good (not outstanding but pretty decent) but the quesadilla was amazing. I admit I was ravenous but seriously this thing was all melted-cheesy deliciousness. I will be back just for that (and maybe save the coffee fix for Taylor St nearby). After lunch I strolled into the lovely and serene Mount Street Gardens - if you have never visited
Church of the Immaculate Conception on Farm Street - which is just lovely. I had first come across a reference to this church in one of my favourite books, "Brideshead Revisited". The
Punch Bowl also on Farm St - a cute little pub made famous by having Madonna's ex as one of its co-owners. All in all I had a very pleasant hour or so and I got back to my desk refreshed and ready for the afternoon. Mayfair therapy I call it.
