Sitting beside the Somerset House restaurant, they offer affordable express options for food lovers on-the-go, serving breakfast, lunch and daily treats like sandwiches, salads, homemade cakes, pastries and snacks, all freshly made using local seasonal produce. Nice and tasty.

Very creative menu, full of flavour. Little pricey but worth it given the surroundings. Service was a little slow and surly but otherwise OK

Chaotic and unhelpful staff, really disorganized and slow. Pricey even for central London and with low quality. Great views from the terrace, I now understand why I saw so many people with food/drinks from other places sitting in that terrace.
