Delicious sausage, good quality bread, crispy bacon, perfectly cooked placed eggs, oodles of big juicy mushrooms and scrummy home made hash browns. This placed definitely rocked for breakfast and the price did too! We will be back to try the black pudding next time!

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
