French Sandwich Shop in South Kensington

I read this review about a nice sandwich in South Kensington and decided to give it a go. Raison d'Etre, a small student cafe, taken care by its owner Mathieu, a lawyer that got bored of the corporate environment and left everything behind to follow his passion the food. Fresh ingredients, fresh baked bread, nice simple straight forward flavours. 

The place
Bon appetit
We got a little bit lost, looked at the menu, with different types of bread, including baguettes, focaccias, and paninis, and a bigger list of options to fill, Mathieu realised we were struggling and immediately came to the rescue explaining all the different options. 

Counter and options
After a while I went for the goat cheese, avocado, pesto, rocket, and balsamic syrup focaccia. The sandwich was great, one of the best ones I have had, the goat cheese with the avocado great flavour, nice touch from the balsamic, pretty good, and nice portion. 

Foccacia time
To end the breakfast I got a cappuccino, the beans he’s using are a blend between Brazil, Colombia, and Panama. Nice flavour, a bit mild the coffee, but creamy cappuccino.

Sandwiches remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Stall” 

George: hey nice move today 
Kramer: what? 
George: horning on my rock climbing trip. It's just supposed to be me and Tony 
Kramer: he asked me 
George: you put him on the spot 
Kramer: you know I think you are in love with him 
George: what? that's ridiculous! 
Kramer: no no no, I don't think so. You love him 
George: you better be careful on those rocks tomorrow buddy. And you're not getting any sandwiches either
