Kings Cross Station has had an facelift. The concourse to the west now has a stunning vaulted ceiling and mezzanine floor, and is home to several new places to eat and shops, including Patisserie Valerie, Kiehls and the excellent Watermark books.

I pop into Leon for a cuppa. I have always loved this London chain and have use the original Carnaby Street branch for years.

There is a large room at the back with high ceilings, and the decor is artfully done, with exposed piping, bare brickwork, mismatched chairs and some wonderful retro lighting. It is certainly a step up from the interiors of most railway station caffs.

The range of teas include English Breakfast, China Green, and Earl grey.
My Jasmine tea was very nice and refreshing, but I would have been better a china cup, and not so wasteful.

The seated area was not too crowded and I would happily come here for refreshments, whether catching a train or not.
