Very good value, traditional English breakfast, at £5.50 that is very good for London. Gets pretty busy, despite being away from tourist routes, good food, nice atmosphere. Counter service a little impersonal, but efficient.

Amazing traditional English cafe. Quality food. Excellent fast straight forward no frills counter service. Great value for money. Local firefighters clearly frequent this establishment which is an good endorsement in itself! Expect to queue a bit due to it's popularity but well worth the wait

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
