Most cafés in London have a simple function, making hot drinks like cappuccinos and selling pastries such as almond croissants to the masses in the capital. These cafés are frequented by people deciding to be a bit different by working from home in their local cafés and gym goers getting a refreshing gulp of iced coffee after a session.
However, in a side street just off Leicester Square, a busy café is light and airy with a coffee station to the left-hand side as you enter through the glass-pained doors. Fair Shot Café, in Slingsby Place, is a naturally calming environment as its walls and counters are painted white. Behind the till, there are several cactuses and cookery books for decoration. On the right of the till, there is a wide range of sandwiches and salads, which are homemade on the day.
