Oh my, I am going to miss coming here first thing in the morning for breakfast! We've stayed a total of 7 days here in London and on day 3 we were walking by looking for a brekkie spot and ended up here thanks to a very enthusiastic young waitress. The place may not look fancy but it's clean and... More

We stopped in here our first morning and had a great breakfast. The staff are very friendly and we ended up eating here each morning on our trip. Gave us a tip on where to find the type of tea they serve, as we wanted some to bring home with us. Be sure and pop in for breakfast!

From the outside and from where its situated you'd be forgiven for thinking this is just another "greasy spoon" café. How wrong you'd be. Yes it does do the usual café food - breakfasts etc, but their speciality sandwiches were scrumptious. I had the Napoli - chicken escalope, mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes & mayo - delicious. My 9 year old... More

Eating here right now at this moment and had to post what a lucky find this café is! Looks like a run of the mill greasy spoon but everything is made fresh to order with hot tea, hot breakfast and pleasant service with good prices! So glad we found this place :)

From the outside it looks like your run of the mill greasy spoon cafe that would host bad decor, poor service and even worse food but this place is certainly NOT that!!! A nice friendly warm welcome, shown a table, table service form the friendly guys there. Food prices are reasonable for what you'd expect in London. The food came... More

This place from the outside looks like mum the of a a 'wine bar' however it sort of isn't? Inside is very comfortable with different types of seating and a stone floor so you can take dogs in with you... (not that we have a dog) they serve food until 8 which actually worked? What I mean is that it... More

Just out of Waterloo, 5 min walk to this restaurant. Lovely welcoming staff, no fuss in a few swaps on the breakfasts. Nothing was too much trouble. Great quality tasting food cooked to perfection. I will make this my regular stopping point for breakfast when at Waterloo.
