E. Pellicci is one of the greatest of London's surviving Italian cafes.
It opened in 1900 and has been run by the same family since then. It was renovated in the 40s and has remained mostly unchanged since then (the art deco interior is even listed as Grade II by English Heritage). The food (a mix of English and Italian fare) is exactly how you’d want it to be, the flat whites are hot and delicious, and the staff couldn’t be nicer.
