Just like Lina used to make


Now for a treat. If you have ever been to Soho and wandered around the streets, you are sure to have found a very enticing mint green store. This is Lina Stores, and is very much worthy of your attention.

Lina Stores has been a staple of Soho since way, way back in the 1940's (the name of the store actually takes its name from the original creator, a woman from Genova). The store has moved along a close-to-family line ever since, and largely in the same place on Brewer Street (it was originally set up in Rupert Street, but moved within months of inception).

So, why should you go there? Well, apart from the historical aspect of the store, there is of course the delicious food inside. Being that it is a delicatessen, you will find all manner of authentic Italian goods, and all imported from Italy. Alongside this fresh pasta, cakes and of course coffee are made in store.

Of the imported goods everything from alcohol to biscuits, beans to fish can be found, so if you know your gnocci from your macaroni, and your Estathe from your Pago (or you woulld like to), head along to the store for inspiration and quality produce at every turn.

More than just a local store, but an institution from a very different era, Lina Stores has seen it all, and still sits proudly as the old lady of Brewer Street, and we should all be thankful for that too. Get yourself along there and grab some real Italian inspiration.
