L’Eto Caffe in Shepherd Market!
So I have been to L'Eto a couple of times but usually to the ones in Soho or South Kensington. This was my first visit to the one in Mayfair and I have to say their choice of location is ideal. I have often thought of escaping and hiding away in some cafe and getting [...]
