Neal's Yard

A  hidden gem- Neal's Yard is just near Covent Garden. It is in a quaint district known as Seven Dials. Neal's Yard is quiet, secluded, bursting with color and charm. The colours and vibe of the place leave you speechless .
In the 70s Neal’s Yard consisted of a few derelict warehouses on the edge of the less than fashionable Covent Garden area. Within a few years it became a crazy hidden-away place which it still is.
The place is not that big(a small courtyard) and there aren’t  many shops. Only a few shops selling local cheeses, organic and homeopathic products, massages (the real ones), couple of restaurants and cafes.
Homeslice pizza serves 20 inches pizzas for 20 pounds which is quite a treat.You can order hand and half .They serve by slice as well-4 pounds per slice.
Wild food cafe is a raw centric,vegan cafe. Their food is fresh and the desserts and smoothies are to die for.A great place for veggies and non-veggies like wise. They love what they do,and it is clear from the way they present. White Chocolate tart sprinkled with dried rose petals and nuts,never seen a dessert put so beautifully on a plate.Sit by the window with a dessert,you will have to experience the feeling,it can’t be described in words.A touch on an expensive side but it's all organic and raw,you get what you pay for.
The place is magical.You can just sit on one of the colorful octagonal benches  in the quiet courtyard and enjoy.It has become a regular place for us and we are asking friends who have not heard about this place,just so we get an excuse to be here again and again.The place is just out of a fairy tale and we love fairy tales :).
