You pass through the bakery/store for access which can also be utilized during evening hours for an added cost.

To quote Tim Hayward in the FT:
"I know I shouldn’t bang on about architecture in a food column, but Toklas is more exciting than almost any other room in London. Down one side of the original buildings, the courtyard level was thrust through the building above and hung out over Surrey Street as a terrace. During redevelopment, the internal space — designed by Stafford School, who has also worked on the Barbican Centre — was cleared back to the original shuttered concrete and opened seamlessly onto the terrace. It is breathtaking. You eat, suspended among the derelict upper layers of the surrounding buildings, staring at the ceramic encrustation of the old Strand Tube station, realizing how much of this part of London is actually Beaux-Arts. "
