London book cafes, where you can deliciously read

Why not to combine useful with pleasant? Order aromatic coffee and a croissant (or maybe something more hearty), go to the bookshelves, choose an interesting book and absorb the letters along with the devouring of food? If there is no a chatty friend nearby and you are not in a hurry anywhere - tasty food and leisurely reading will be good for you.
