For a twist of the Caribbean in the City, head to Mahoe, a café/bistro/rum bar near St Paul's cathedral. Located on the pretty pedestrianised cobbled Bow Lane, and a stone's throw from Mansion House tube, Mahoe strives to combine Starbucks and Carluccio's with a bit of West Indian flair. Open seven days a week, Mahoe offers a simple menu of wraps, hot sandwiches, grills, salads and soups, while the bar is stocked with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and enough rum to put a smile on Christopher Columbus's face. Specialities include jerk chicken, red snapper, exotic fruit salads and a crab, callaloo and coconut soup, while the café also boasts an award winning pastry deli with bespoke puddings. Soothing Caribbean music plays in the background, and while the modern décor is initially a little disappointing for a concept so steeped in traditional values, an al-fresco area bodes well for summer drinking. Definitely worth a visit if you work in the area - or if you're passing through on the weekend. The rum cocktails are exceptional.
