Eat, SW1E 5JH

  • Unit 14, Cardinal Place, SW1E 5JH (streetmap)

This was a branch of Eat, a sandwich/soup/pie/salad/coffee shop chain that was sold to Pret A Manger in 2019 and closed down for good in March 2020. (We think this branch might have closed down before the final closure of the chain, but can't confirm this for definite.)

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

Takeaway sandwich/soup/pie/salad/coffee shop with a constantly-rotating menu, located in Cardinal Place near Victoria Station.

This place is usually extremely packed on weekday lunchtimes, as it's one of the only places to offer all the hungry civil servants who work locally the opportunity to get hot soup to take back to their desks. I (AlexTiefling) don't think I've ever managed to sit down inside and eat at this branch, and Cardinal Place (like Victoria Street itself) is an appalling wind tunnel, so I don't recommend the 'outdoor' tables. (In Cardinal Place, the wind can get so strong that on one occasion in early 2007, the glass door of the Ha!Ha! bar opposite this branch was torn clean off and shattered.)

All of which said, it's a reasonably reliable place to get healthy veggie-friendly food. The vegan options are expensive and dull, though.
