Last week I had a short time to have lunch in the City so I decided to try Il tempo. I walked in and a lovely floor manager said that it was wait service and to have a seat. Although a little cold outside I decided to sit out there under the shelter as I just love watching the world go by!
Looking over the menu and wanting a toasted sandwich I decided on a classic, a bacon and egg toasted sandwich. I also ordered my usual weak latte.
My latte came out and it not only looked perfect, it was perfect! Beautiful nutty tones with a hint of aniseed?
My toasted sandwich however was such a letdown. It was just so dry and bland and the egg was overcooked making the sandwich even more difficult to eat.. Using butter and maybe some relish would of really made a difference, however this was not the case.
This is a hard one as I loved the coffee and the very friendly service, however the food let this cafe down. So for now I give Il Tempo a 6/10
