Bill'sCombining an old-fashioned grocer with an appealing delicatessen and an informal café serving a British and Mediterranean-influenced menu, the first London outlet of Bill's boasts a plum spot in the new St Martin's Courtyard development in Covent Garden. The flagship Bill's all-day café and deli opened in Lewes back in 2001 and outlets have followed in Brighton and Reading since. It's a great addition to this extremely central location - whether you're after an early breakfast, a lazy late brunch, a quick lunch, an afternoon coffee or a more substantial pre- or post-theatre dinner (there's a fully licensed bar, to boot). Service goes over two floors, joined by an imposing steel staircase. The walls are adorned with shelves stacked with produce; bunches of chillies hang from above; appealing menus are propped up all over the place on blackboards; staff are down-to-earth and attentive. Breakfast is served till noon, but the choice is so huge you're bound to find something that appeals if you arrive any later. Definitely worth a pit-stop if you find yourself at a loose end in the West End.
