Kings Cross is an incredibly busy, exciting and core part of London and contains an exceptional amount of restaurants and cafes to cater for the thousands of business people that pass through the area every single day. As the key arrivals and departures area for various domestic and international trains, Kings Cross welcomes visitors from all over the world on a daily basis. So whether you’re catching up over lunch with a client who’s between journeys, or you’re having a team meeting with your colleagues in a coffee shop instead of the office, you’ll have no problem finding somewhere ideal in Kings Cross.
You will find popular high street chains all over London, but especially in Kings Cross as internationally recognised brands fight for retail space here in the knowledge that no matter what nationality a person is, they will recognise their brand and opt to eat somewhere they know. This is perfect if you need food or beverages quickly, just remember to avoid the places closest to the train stations where possible as these are always the busiest. For a cute setting and delicious Mexican food visit Burrito and be sure to sample one of their famous pulled pork burritos. For organic fizzy drinks, simple classic hot beverages and tasty sandwiches, go straight to Pret A Manger – just be sure to get there early if you want a good selection of fresh food – it sells fast! And if you think you and your team could do with a bit of brain food to kick start your brainstorming session, visit Leon and enjoy one of their innovative food boxes.
Other great chains in Kings Cross are; Prezzo, ASK Italian and Pizza Express.
