Gino's is a splendid place opposite Marylebone Station. The ebcb is magnificent. And delivered at a hundred miles an hour. (They offer all sorts of service speed pledges - they're obviously used to people trying to catch a train.) Big, fat chips, a lovely sloppy egg, bacon hiding ready to surprise you, a good lashing of beans.
But the best thing about this place, apart from the friendly efficiency, is the exuberant use of colour and signs.
Look at those dispensers. Blue pepper. Yellow salt.
Great stools for gazing out at the commuters, nursing fin de siecle ennui and weltschmertz.
Lots of flourescence.
Great window paintings.
And marvelous plastic food. My first find in a cafe. Along with a little model chef. Superb.
