Local Expert Tip: "Apart from stocking a large range of books, Foyles has a great cafe on the first floor. You can either enter the cafe from the book store itself, or come up separately through a flight of stairs off the Charing Cross road. Lots of writers, actors, students and creative people hang out here so you'll also be able to people watch and hear some great conversations."
Local Expert Tip: "Go on a weekday, out of school holidays if you want a slightly less crowded experience. Go near Christmas if you want to benefit from the magic that that season conveys and enjoy the extra special windows and atmosphere in the shop, but be prepared for crowds."
Rococo chocolates is the perfect Knightsbridge type of shop, elegant, independent and hugely luxurious.
Local Expert Tip: "Rococo chocolates is the perfect place to buy a present or a special treat."
Local Expert Tip: "The tofu and spinach pancakes are great for a snack, and the chocolate brownies and other in house cakes are to die for. They used to stock the whole Pacifica range too, although it depends on the store now, but great if you miss it from the states and want to pick some up in London. "
