The Delaunay Counter — a family friendly Viennese cafe in the West End

I can remember the leisurely late-night meals and date nights my husband and I once had at The Delaunay restaurant. Now we are normally tucked up in bed at 9pm, not going out to start the evening. But I am so pleased that the same owners and chefs are now available, adjacent but in a more causal cafe atmosphere next door at the Delaunay Counter.

The Delaunay Counter is a family friendly, traditional, Viennese cafe. You can find it a hop, skip, and a jump away from Somerset House, next to the West End, and around the corner from Covent Garden. It is a great spot to have as a special treat in London, without reservations needed or big price tags.

Typical of Mittel-European cafés, it serves simple but exceptional food. And they cater to children — with high chairs, banquette seating if available, and a baby change in the loo. Not all London establishments offer this!

Our children loved their meal, and especially loved the children’s hot chocolate afterwards.

It is open early during the week for morning coffees and viennoiserie, though to breakfast, lunch and light afternoon bites. Pastries, cakes, sandwiches, soups and salads along with hot and cold drinks, to eat in or take away. And as evening falls on Covent Garden, stop by for a pre-theatre snack or simply enjoy the selection of wines, beers and cocktails accompanied perhaps by a schnitzel or cheese fondue.

No reservations required.
