Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge

Patsy hasn't eaten since 1974 - Eddie

Harvey Nichols, 109-125 Knightsbridge, London, is the kind of place Patsy and Eddie loved to shop, and possibly drink. But it's unlikely Patsy ever ate at the Vth floor cafe, Tel +44 20 7823 1839. Which is a pity. Because the eggs benedict at Harvey Nicks isn't too bad.

Good quality eggs. Nice hollandaise. OK ham and muffins. Even the coffee was drinkable. I'm just sorry I didn't try the "Harvey Nichols Capuccino", which carried a curious warning... "contains nuts".

If, like the fash-mag-slag, you prefer to take your nourishment in the form of boozy beverages, the Vth floor cafe does an interesting range of liquor hot chocolate. Some of these also contain nuts. The Vesuvio, for example, which contains a shot of Amaretto Luxuardo, and only costs 5 quid. Quite a bargain, when you consider that the Bloody Mary will set you back 9.

Your comment about containing nuts would be amusing to anyone living in England. It is a legal requirement here that a warning must be given on any food item containing nuts.
Nut allergies are so serious that anyone having one could die if they ate such an item. (even if it was prepared near where a nut item was being produced and it did not itself contain nuts.
