Flack: (Saving) on Expenses - Dryland Grand Cafe, London W8

Reviewer: Mary-Clare Gribbon, account director, Luca

- What is it good for?

Sophisticated yet laid back, it is great for journalist meetings at any time of the day, with the London Evening Standard, Daily Mail and The Independent based across the road.

- Signature dish

The salads, sandwiches and grazing platters make for a light lunch that leaves one feeling nicely full. All the ingredients are seasonal and the menu changes frequently to reflect what is new. It also offers amazing cakes and pastries.

- Who's the boss?

Head chef is Abby Moule, who has been an apprentice in three Michelin-starred kitchens - Chez Bruce, Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and The Fat Duck.

- Tips please

Dryland Grand Cafe prides itself on its excellent coffee - it has its own estate blend - while there is also a wide selection of food to take away.

- What's the damage?

Sharing platters start from £10.95, a choice of three tapas for £11.95, salads from £6.95 and sandwiches from £5.95. Cakes range from £3.75.
