Hell's Kitchen - A cafe that does not live up its name
The only Hell's Kitchen I had ever heard of was the one on TV with Gordan Ramsay as it's star chef, so I was most intrigued when I discovered it while looking for a cafe to have a bite to eat.

The stairs that lead up to Hells Kitchen

I could have easily missed the place as the entrance is only a single door. I had no idea what to expect when I made my way up the narrow stairs to what seemed like the back door of the premises. I was a little unsure at first, as the steel kegs seem to imply that I shouldn't be there, however as there was no other entrance I ventured forward, and indeed once through the door I was in a very pleasant little cafe/bar venue.

The service is slow but the staff are very friendly when they get to you. The small table for two that we sat at wobbled quite a lot which was very annoying. Having said that, this is a little oasis in above the hustle and bustle of the busy lane below. You almost have to slow down because no-one is moving very fast. You can sit and chat sip coffee or something stronger if you fancy. The menu is tasty and seems to cater for all tastes.
