Ok it’s not a secret, but it feels like it is.
This evening I was walking down Oxford Street, looking for a quiet place to read a book but all the cafes were packed. I kept wandering up the street, not really sure where I was going but hoping I might find a table in a corner of somewhere.
Then I saw it.
This cafe is like something from a Harry Potter movie. A cute, odd-ball place that you always forget is there until you see it again.
Hidden beside Luna Cinema (actually attached to Luna Cinema) is a corridor of red seats, pot plants, fresh coffee and art-postcards. It’s the Luna Cafe. It’s across the traffic lights, down the road from the busiest part of Oxford Street – so there aren’t many passers by – and for almost an hour I had the cafe largely to myself.
Because it’s part of the cinema it’s mostly quiet until there is a rush of movie-watchers showing their tickets and looking for cinemas. Occasionally it’s a stopping point for them as they grab a coffee before or after a movie. If you’re interested you can listen in as they walk out of the movie and catch snippets of their 2-second-movie-reviews.
“I really enjoyed that”
“It was a bit heavy going at the start”
As a bonus they also have arcade games as tables (!!) and very sweet staff.
