ts so refreshing to find an inexpensive, but charismatic cafe to have a quick sandwich or toasted teacake – Paul Rothe and son is on 35 Marylebone Lane. you are surrounded by jars of jams, relishes and biscuits, but it is functional, efficient and so atmospheric- so different from the usual cafe neros and prets. on a bigger and more upmarket scale, villandry is a deli, coffee bar and restaurant, and honey and co has a deli opposite their cafe.next door is the unusual shoe shop Tracey Neuels – see the shoe and art installation that sits happily with the art of her shoes. cross the street and visit the button queen, a whole shop specialising in beautiful vintage buttons and modern buttons of every style. its what marylebone does best, its individual and specialist shops. incidentally i had to replace a lace covered button from my vintage blouse and i found a metal button that you cover yourself from kleins – i bought some similar colour lace ribbon – it worked a treat.
