Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

With simple wooden tables and mis-matched wooden chairs Nomad cafe is a busy café across the road from Haymarket Station offering light lunches, sandwiches and soup to eat-in or takeaway. The vegan pancake with roasted vegetables made with white lentils and white rice is particularly good – light and fluffy, it’s a slightly different take on lunch too. Its location makes Nomad popular with local office workers, commuters and those who want to linger and people-watch while enjoying a coffee and croissant or a slice of the dense dark chocolate cake that delivers the perfect chocolate hit.
