Where to find the BEST gourmet food in Soho, London
A foodie tour through Soho, London
Not only is Soho full of important landmarks, it’s also got some of the best gourmet foodie spots in London. I love wandering through Soho and stocking up on food supplies or dining at new restaurants that are popping up. There are also lovely luxury hotels in Soho, many of which have beautiful bars to enjoy a drink in the evening too.
Here are my favourite foodie spots in Soho, London which are well worth a visit when you are next in the area!
Lina stores is an iconic Italian delicatessen and pasta restaurant which was established in 1944. This gorgeous store is full of the best Italian produce including fresh homemade pasta, cured meats and of course, cheese!
I like to pick up some parmigiano-reggiano from here and always also end up buying a few cannolis too, as they are irresistible!
They also sell fresh sandwiches filled with their authentic ingredients in the store - perfect for a delicious Italian snack! The staff are super friendly and happy to help with any questions.

Algerian Coffee Stores
Algerian Coffee stores was established in 1887, and over 130 years later they are still selling decadent and delicious coffee in Soho. Offering over 80 coffee and 120 teas, they also sell the cheapest coffee in London, which is made from their home-blend coffee beans and served on site.
I usually buy a pack of their home-blend coffee beans and a cappuccino to go whenever I pop up to Algerian Coffee Stores!

Bread Ahead originally started by selling fresh produce in Borough Market. After opening a bakery school, they now have a lovely cafe in Soho just by Kingly Court. Thy are known for their gigantic cinnamon buns, beautiful doughnuts and gluten free bread too.
I always head to Bread Ahead for their sourdough bread, and a small loaf of brown sourdough bread will cost about £3.

Kova Patisserie Café
Kova Patisserie café sells beautifully hand-made Japanese cakes and Japanese teas. This includes their signature mille crepes which is made up of several layers of crepes with more layers of cream in between these - divine!
My favourite is the coconut flavour mille crepe, though matcha and vanilla are also very popular. This is a great place to experience the latest cafe culture from East Asia in the heart of Soho!

Bao in Soho has become an institution, and you can often find a queue snaking around the outside. Selling some of the best bao buns in Soho, Bao has developed quite a following since it first opened.
My favourites are the Classic Bao, filled with shredded pork and a peanut topping the flavours are delicious! I also enjoy the vegetarian Daikon Bao, filled with taiwanese radish it is spicy and crunchy and irresistible! I also always order the Fried Horlicks Ice Cream Bao which is the hardest thing to eat but totally worth the effort! Top tip - Arrive early to beat the queues!

Papi’s Kitchen, Street Food Union Market
Located on Rupert Street, Street Food Union Market is a must visit. It can be easily missed as it isn’t massive, but hosts some of the best new foodie start-ups in London.
My favourite is Papi’s Kitchen and their amazing cuban sandwiches. Make sure to sample the El Cubano, filled with pineapple marinated pork shoulder, honey ham, swiss cheese, and home-made mojo verde. Enjoy with fries in the sunshine and soak up the Soho foodie culture!
