The food was good, but very expensive, service a bit slow too. They did however go to great lengths to make sure my food didn't contain any allergens.

Lots of mixed reviews on here and ours can add to that. Not many people in so got a table straight away. Lunchtime. Had all day breakfast and a veggie breakfast. Smallest portion of beans I have ever seen and the scrambled egg was the...More

Went in and had a sandwich and wine with a friend. They are doing the sandwiches for £7.50 each (we had fish finger and a separate cheesy sandwich with avocado) with chips (£3) and 2 small glasses of pinot at £5 each - so £30....More

Beautiful setting and nice relaxed atmosphere, only spoilt by unfriendly staff who couldn't manage even a thank you when coming to pay. Needs investment in customer service training.

We visited for breakfast today. Service was slow. Waitress rolled her eyes when we requested condiments. Mashed avocado was clearly from a tube of processed gloop. Don't waste your time visiting this one - plenty of other options nearby.

Lovely little restaurant in a great setting. Food is great but the customer service was appalling. Forgot our drinks, got the order wrong, no apology, pretty rude overall and would not recommend.

Top notch Eggs Benedict with a twist just for me. Great value: decent portion size. Nice peeps. Bla bla bla

15 minutes after we got seated, our orders still hadn't been taken. We saw the manager / waiter discussing with other guests (there weren't that many) so we waved at the bar girl, as we were in a little rush due to other scheduled activities...More

Four of us went here for breakfast today - didn't stay long. Surly, unfriendly male staff member behind bar was clearly unhappy that more customers had entered the premises (and it was very quiet with only 5-6 tables occupied). Instead of receiving a courteous welcome,...More

This was a really pleasant find. Next to the church and not easy to find unless you're looking, but we had a really nice cold breakfast and cups of tea, plus it wasn't too pricey for London. Would definitely go back.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

Hi there...yes we are very close. The concierge know us so can direct you but if you just walk up towards the main road with the Tower of London on your right, there is a church on your left. We are on the end of that... More

They sell just cakes, so that definately won't be a problem and they added bacon to my eggs benedict, so I am sure they will pile on more sandwiches if you ask. I would suggest phoning them to reserve a table, as it is very... More
