View From the Room
We actually had 3 small grocery stores on our block as well as a drugstore, which was very convenient . I like the French name of the store: "Le Super Marche". All around London are sandwich shops , and the most prevalent shops are part of a chain called "Pret a Manger". The sandwiches are definitely English-style despite the name: Smoked salmon, cheese and tomato,
tuna and sweet corn, etc. The "Pret a Manger" sandwiches are all made fresh every morning and any left-overs at the end of the day are given away to charity.
We ate at an Italian restaurant one evening and they were also "selling their wares".
