Traditional English Cafe with a modern twist (eg duck eggs on toast)
Open 7 days a week (Sun closes at 14:00)
Exceptional. One of the few proper English "cafs" left. One of the best English breakfasts in London. Excellent meat quality, none of that "school sausage" malarchy. The eggs are always perfectly cooked, fried or poached... The owner is incredibly friendly which adds to the pleasure of my frequent visits here. My favourite English cafe in London by a mile. Ian J
