We popped in here a number of times during our stay at St Katherine's Dock. Food was well priced. Breakfast well priced and just enough to start the day. A bit noisy on Friday nights when it gets very busy. Other times were quite peaceful and relaxing.

We ate breakfast here since we were staying in an apartment in St. Katherine's docks. Everything was fine, coffee was good, there were two people that we could see in the restaurant that were working. We had egg and cheese sandwiches on baguettes which were large and very good.

Despite being very quite in the restaurant i enjoyed every second. The staff were very polite, professional and extremely welcoming. The food was of a very good standard however the menu could do with being a bit larger as there was not much choice. Prior to booking i would check the menu but the restaurant is fantastic none the less.

Thank James K

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood Profile
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
