My wife will be in London for 2 days in late April. She asked me to ask you some things.

First, what are your recommendations for eating within close proximity of the Paddington Station? She's vegetarian and prefers low-key, casual ethnic restaurants to fancy places with extensive wine lists. She also loves finding her own food at interesting grocery stores or supermarkets, so if there are any that cater to the vegetarian/granola type set in the immediate area, she'd dig it.
Second, where would you suggest she go if she likes things like art galleries or stores with outsider art and/or folk art? She prefers stores and galleries to museums. Similarly, where should she look for a cluster of shops that sell things like zines or urban crafts?
Finally, are there any places she might check out that have what she describes as a "quiet, meditative feel or spiritual feel where she could tune inward" that are close by? She's spending the rest of her time at Avebury, which apparently has stone circles that would meet these criteria.
