Shopping excitement in Lower Marsh

Waterloo foodies are very excited by a French delicatessan that has just opened in Lower Marsh - Cafe Traiteur. The name is rather ominous and it will probably descend into being just another lunch time eating place. At the moment, though, the French proprietors seem enthusiastically (and rather bumblingly) selling a "select" range of cheeses, cooked meats and pastries. Its at the Westminster Bridge Road end next to avant-garde jeweller William Prophet.

No connection etc.

Thanks for pointing this out; I had a very nice baguette there at lunchtime.

I've added it to the directory:

I bought food for a picnic there on Saturday and it was excellent.

I would recommend it.

Went today to Cafe Traiteur and well it was absolutely amazing. Fantastic menu, food and what great value for money. A must for all french food lovers.

I love this little cafe gem - lovely staff, yummy food good opening hours...they need to add some decorative atmosphere but thrilled they're there!

Also - Le Pain de Quoitidan beside the Royal Festival Hall looks like a more corporate but quite attractive hang out. With excellent hours and LOADS of space.
Rock on South Bank...
