In the funky North Laine area, Nia has views down Trafalgar Street from its outdoor tables. Besides good coffees and leaf teas, excellent café food is available all day, from steaming hot breakfasts to simple sandwiches at lunch to more sophisticated dinners like goat cheese tartlets or braised beef and butternut squash tagine. The decor is coffee-shop chic, with wood tables, chairs, and floors; large windows flood the room with light. Nia is near the station, which is
handy if you have time to kill before a train.
