Balthazar – Russell Street

This is a very cool little place just off Covent Garden, really small and only a couple of seats and very warm inside but we wanted to sit in Covent Garden anyway and so that wasn’t an issue. I had a latte and a flourless chocolate cake, Kerry had an Americano and a slice of chocolate cake.

The staff were really good, they didn’t rush, the time taken made the difference to the coffee flavours I think. They also have very cool takeaway cups.

My latte was lovely, really smooth and very hot indeed. The flourless cake was odd, it was very stodgy and had far too many nuts for my liking. Kerry’s Americano was nice too and she really enjoyed it. Her chocolate cake had a nice flavour although it was slightly dry on the edge and the cocoa powder on top wasn’t lightly dusted but shovelled on, I tried some and it made me cough.
