Mad Dog Cafe specialises in hot dogs. Sounds limited? Not at all - there's a huge range of different dogs. I've tried the vegetarian ones, and really enjoyed them. You get the option of fried onions, peppers, and mild or hot barbeque sauce. They make an adequate light meal; if two of you share a portion of chips as well, it's a really filling meal. The tone of the Cafe is casual. The menu is light-hearted, as is the decor. The music tends to be very loud, so it's not the ideal place for intimate chatting with friends, but it is great for a fun meal with fast and pleasant service. The location is very convenient for central London: it's just off Oxford Street, a short walk from Selfridges. Altogether, if you want somewhere with good, simple food, an upbeat atmosphere, good service and reasonable prices, this is a cafe well worth trying.
