I found this place by chance going to the tube. Lovely ambience and great selection of breakfast and brunch dishes. The salmon omelette was to die for, so good I returned the next day for city breakfast which was also great. Good friendly service.

I had the city view breakfast (scrambled eggs, toast, salmon and cheese. My son had Nutella pancakes and some hash browns. Also had a banana/strawberry smoothie. Good service, food arrived quickly and very attentive. Couldn’t fault the quality of the food or the service. Nice...clean place for a good start to the day.More

You can tell straight away that the place is popular as it is very full, however, the wait time was still very short, I didn't even wait for a minute before being sat and the food actually surprised me with how quick it came. I...just went in for breakfast, the food is quite good and the service as well, everyone was very nice and polite. Would recommend for a nice either quick or relaxed breakfast.More

I had popped in earlier that morning and got a very good feeling about the café and decided to come back for breakfast. one criticism is that toast should have some colour on it and not resemble warm bread. But I digress, top marks fir...the food the service and the staff.More

As an East Londoner and breakfast cafe addict i like to support local cafes. I have visited here before and found the menu good and the coffee excellent. I therefore recommended it to my grandad who was on a trip down from Scotland. He took...our son for breakfast there and they charted 9.50 for scrambied eggs and toast for a child! Its not the Ritz and is on a busy main road. He queried it and was told "that is the price read the menu first before you order. Post Covid London cafes need people to come and eat out. He wont be visiting again and I am posting here to give some feedback. It is a shame as I did quite like this cafe but could give very poor rating on this. I know it is not meant to be a kids diner but it needs to be better for kids otherwise lose custom and I cannot recommend it at moment. This sort of behaviour gets London a bad name with tourists. Reply would be appreciated.More

This cafe is an absolute gem and well worth a visit. The breakfasts are delicious and well presented and the coffee is excellent. Most importantly the staff make you feel very welcome. It’s well worth a train ride to visit this gem of a cafe.
