I decided to go here with my girlfriend as we were killing time for an appointment at the Apple Store. We both decided to go for the 'Smoked Chicken Caesar Brioche Bun'. It was okay but the slaw was essentially raw carrot without sauce. The bun was also fairly bland. The most off putting part of the visit was the... More

I had potato fritata with salad in vinaigrette and some bread with butter. I thought the bread could have done some warming before they served it. The fritata was average. I guess you can't expect much from a potato omelette, really. The salad in vinaigrette dressing I adored! I also liked their homemade lemonade. It was a bit strong but... More

We had a lovely breakfast at Le Pain. With one very fussy eater who enjoyed her scrambled eggs and avocado and salmon. An ideal place to start the day on the South Bank just a stones throw from the Royal Festival Hall. Our waiter was very attentive and I think it was the manager with the red hair was delightful....

Perfect place for something to eat and drink before concert/event in Southbank Centre. I popped in for just an half an hour and what a wonderful surprise this place was! The choice on the menu is really interesting, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. The toast with avocado and seeds which arrived to my table was delicious! Chef also... More

Conveniently located for South bank and Waterloo. You can sit outside and watch the world go by or sit inside and soak up the atmosphere. Good menu with some interesting choices for non meat eaters. Tempting selection of breads/muffins/pastries in the take away section. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Had the vegan soup which was pleasant but could have done with... More

I visited for a working lunch. Both of had a salad, which was good and plentiful - though on one salad there could have been more goat's cheese and on the other more avocado, as those ewre listed as the mian points of the salad. Nice though limited wine list, good range of snacks, breakfast, teas and coffees. Really impressed... More

Under the rumbling railway noises this interesting and unpretentious eatery turned up trumps when we wanted a light lunch. A good selection of eats and drinks in pleasant surroundings dings appealed to both young and old alike. The avocado on toast is scrummy!

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
