Charles Dickens Coffee HouseThis small and dingy café is located on the ground floor of the building that was the office of Charles Dickens' popular weekly magazine All The Year Round, published in 1859-70. The celebrated Victorian author lodged at rooms above the editorial offices in the late 1860s for a few years before he died in 1870. The Charles Dickens Coffee House obviously dines out on its heritage - but this tourist trap does not have much to recommend except for a few outdoor tables good for Covent Garden people watching in the summer. Fine if you want an over-priced no-frills sandwich, panino or snack (it's average Italian fare), cup of coffee or tea, with a Dickensian backstory - but there are many better places in the area.
