They describe their menu as “Snob Food” and cater to those wanting more than the average sandwich and packet of crisps in the middle of their working day – welcome to Napket, the posh way to do lunch!

With 4 urban boutique cafes throughout the Centre of London, Napket is fast carving out a niche for itself as a luxury lunchtime eatery for discerning diners looking for something a little more high end than the usual offerings for city workers. Napket Picadilly offers a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, with the Vigo Street branch offering much the same but on a slightly smaller scale. The other two premises are smaller and therefore offer just the take out menu for those on the go. The whole feel of the Napket restaurant is welcoming with an elegant, European edge. Here you can treat yourself to a delicious midday bottle of wine and extravagant salad or sandwich – note my use of the word ’or’. My guest and I had not realised the sizes were quite so generous and ordered both, imagining two delicate side orders! Nope – they feed you well at Napkets and a salad will more than suffice till 6pm! If you’re popping in for a take-out then you can go straight to the salad bar and pick up something gorgeous from the patisserie on your way out – make sure you do, they are simply divine!

However if you’re dining in then I recommend trying one of their hugely creative ‘create-your-own’ salads! Your waiter will ask you to select a base (potato salad, garden leaf salad, etc) then up to two toppings ( beef, duck, prawn, etc) then to finish, a dressing of your choice (from Caesar to Balsamic and Olive Oil!) No two salads are the same and you have the feeling you are ordering off the menu, like a VIP customer! The other lunchtime alternative are the sandwiches, which are equally as indulgent and delicious – once again with generous portions and unique fillings. You won’t find run of the mill cheese and tomato at Napkets, it’s all about offering a menu that is that little bit different – and I love it!

To round off lunch you simply must sample something from the scrumptious patisserie – even if it’s to take back to the office as a mid afternoon treat! The mouth watering selection of meringues and tarts lines the window of Napket as you wait to be seated (and yes, there is quite a lunchtime rush, signaling just how popular lunchtime snob food has become in London) so you’re simply dying to try them before you’ve even ordered your mains! All in all, I’m rather liking this new trend for snob food - it’s about time we had more on offer than Waitrose nibbles and M&S sarnies!
