Having scuttled from the execrable Vapiano we fell back on a reliable old friend, Gitane on Great Titchfield Street. The coffee is excellent in Gitane – as good as Kaffeine up the road but with a more relaxed, less twattish vibe in the room. The food is veggie friendly and entirely scoffable. I went for a green herby quiche with a beetroot salad. The quiche was juicy and the salad packed with flavour. We had a seat in the window and spent a very pleasant half an hour watching the world go by and gossiping.
