Just wait until you see what's on the menu

Rachel Khoo has joined up with luxury hotel and members club The Ned to bring her latest Parisian offering to the UK. Cafe Sou will bring a taste of Paris to London, serving up breakfast and lunch inspired by Little Paris Kitchen: Cooking with Rachel Khoo.
So what can you expect? Well, freshly brewed coffee and classic French pastries for a start. Alongside French omelettes made with the likes of jambn cru (cured ham) and saumon fume (smoked salmon). And of course it wouldn’t be a Parisian cafe without the baguettes – fill them up with jambon, chicken and avocado, walnut pate or tuna and cucumber. Or for a lighter lunch, choose one of the salads – asparagus and green beans, or puy lentils, kale, walnuts and blue cheese.
The Ned is a name synonymous with luxury (post-lunch dip in the rooftop pool overlooking St. Paul’s anyone?) but do not be disheartened – the prices at Cafe Sou are entirely pedestrian, starting at £3-£7 for breakfast and £7 – £16 per person for lunch. Plus there’s a range of French wines and evening cheese and charcuterie boards for later on. Tres bon!
