Hideaway is the kind of chandelier-clad café that makes you want to get rich through cryptocurrencies even though you thought Bitcoin was some kind of Pokemon until six months ago. Yes, much like its glorious fine dining big sister, Hide, this place is pricey. But importantly, it’s also entirely worth every single pound you spend. The eclairs are rich, the croque madame is a soft, crispy cheese fest, and the pizzas come topped with quality things like truffle and wild thyme. The hefty lobster roll is the real star of the show at this Mayfair café though. It’s sweet, rich, and for top-tier lobster quite reasonable at £18. There’s also wine from Hedonism Wines, caviar and black truffle by the till, a boujie waffle station out front, and some of the best specialist coffee London has to offer. Basically, it’s fine dining dressed down in its trackies, ready for a good time. And above all else, the food is excellent.
