I had friends visiting from Texas and wanted them to have a proper English breakfast, so after checking reviews picked here, we were not disappointed. We ate there the following morning too. Great food and friendly staff.

Tasty & quality cafe! They even did table service for us & moved tables around for us. Can't argue! Go here if you are at the Imperial War Museum.

While walking to Lamberth Bridge we passed this cafe and needed a coffee. Staff were very friendly and lots of locals were popping in for lunch. They were also doinga roaring trade in takeaway meals. The coffee, hot chocolate and hot cross buns were great.
