Where to find this service:
Ca'puccino, the authentic Italian coffee house, has its first airport store at Heathrow. With a menu offering typical and regional Italian dishes, the mission is to take you on a 'giro d'Italia'.
Ever since we opened our first coffee house in 1997, Caffè Nero has been dedicated to two things: creating the very finest handcrafted Italian coffee and providing a warm and relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy it.
Caviar House & Prunier Seafood Bar
A familiar sight in airports worldwide, this clean-cut seafood counter is a regular haunt for frequent flyers. They come for the speed and reliability of the operation, the light, simple food and the convivial bar set-up. Prices may look a little ‘expense account’, but the Discovery (£38) is a three-tiered salmon feast, easily enough for two. If you’re dashing, pick up one of the takeout boxes; if you’ve time to linger over a glass of Muscadet or house Champagne, there’s table seating. Don’t miss the signature Balik salmon
