Love this place!!! I'e been there several times for English breakfast at lunch time. Even if there's a big quee, take a wile to wait because it goes really fast! You quee, order and they shout the names around to pick the orders. Simple decoration and simple food, but so nice to eat there. There's always a mixture of suited... More

A few things about this place... you won't find many places like it. You need to be prepared with your order (don't ask questions about the menu unless you want to ridiculed for not having seen something). You will need to order before you sit down. The menu is kind of average and a bit strange in my opinion. Maybe... More

Excellent breakfast in a traditional and very clean cafe. Great service and staff. Varied mix of customers locals, tourists and armed police. Fabulously friendly atmosphere.

Went there on Saturday morning 9am and the queue was kind of long. However we managed to order our breakfast and get the seats! The breakfast is fantastic and reasonable price (too reasonable for full breakfast in London!). 5.5 pound for a full breakfast with tea is just so reasonable! The service is good and the guy call everyone by... More

This place is in the corner of my home, the food is fresh and typical English breakfast! The staff is really cool they scream your name and your plates really funny.

Love this place, totally no frills just good ole food! Make sure to order first prior to sitting down unless you have a friend with you. Crowd moves fast in this place, so hang around if you cannot get a seat. It's worth it!

Went at 0745 on a Saturday morning after arriving early on the train. It was quiet but had a steady flow of custom, this increased with a queue for takeaway forming by 0830. The Service was great and food superb. Calling many people by name Marco calls the shots, he makes you feel welcome and valued. £5.50 for full English... More

Loved it, food was good, nothing fancy (which was exactly what we wanted), colorful service. Somehow makes you feel like a local. Perfect for a classic english breakfast experience.

Very good food, English breakfast is delicious. Fresh fish on fridays, very nice service! We were a little bit surprised and worried because at 13h there was a queue going outside the door and tables full, but their system works very good and after 10 minutes queuing we ordered and sit right away. Very nice service also!

Thank Fabricio B

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
