Eating and drinking

Hot soup, ca 1965, in Marylebone

51st Parallel applauds Paul Rothe & Son, purveyors of hot soup, jams and marmalades and gingerbread hearts. Since the mid-sixties, the place hasn’t changed a bit. Enter the shop to be served by the friendly and attentive family dressed in white coats just like the good old days. The food is unfussy and tasty; that it is brought to your table is an added major bonus.

In a world dominated by the scripted interactions and mass-produced wares of Pret-a-Manger, here’s the real thing, still going strong.
