It’s quirky, it’s traditional, it’s brilliant! I love the fact that you cannot be selfish and grab a table before you’ve ordered. More places should do this, as it actually keeps the flow of punters moving. It’s my local cafe near work, and never have...More

This cafe is like a time capsule you feel your in a different era. I say that positively. Granted the server shouting out orders at you can be a bit nerve racking for those not used to it but in fairness it’s all part of...More

This cafe was recommended by our Airbnb host. It is a great place for the traditional English breakfast without hurting your wallet.

You have to go to this place for a "proper" London experience. Fast, friendly service with a range of food from the full english breakfast to sweet treats. I ended up having a slice of warm apple pie for breakfast which was delicious. It's also...More

Part of the dining experience is simply watching how this place operates with the cashier / clerk shouting out orders. The food is fresh, hot, and hearty. Bring cash as they don't take credit cards!

Unchanged for at least 50 years, this is a gem of a place. Original decor , friendly people and busy atmosphere with no frills piping hot food very reasonably priced. Loved being called darlin! Arrive by 12.15 to avoid lunchtime queue.

First that welcomes you is the staff, outgoing and helpful. Prices are absolutely fine and I expected more expensive, to be honest. Breakfast so tasty, I got surprised. I plan to visit this restaurant more often especially in the morning. Looking forward.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

The dishes are quite cheap so I think it's better to order 2 but if you are not starving then possibly even 1 would make you pleased ;)
