On a course nearby and this place was recommended by the trainer. The food was very tasty, really quick and the place was buzzing. Chicken Milanese with salami in a hot fresh roll was wonderful. Full range of salads and hot and cold food all looked really good.

We had the Cajun chicken with rice, salsa and sour cream followed by warm rocky road and ice cream. The mega chook deluxe is also highly recommended. Friendly staff, clean restaurant and fab food, go check it out!

Can't really tell you how the cafe compares to other places in and around the area, but we had two excellent lite bites, a Cajun Chicken Panini and Avocado and Crayfish sandwich with a couple of coffee's . £14.95 I think. The selection on offer looked very tempting

Some good things are eternal - and Pumblechook's is a modern incarnation of the eternal London café run by enterprising Italian or Balkan families. Great food - sandwiches, salads, tea & coffee - and crisp friendly service in a large airy seating area as well as a very busy carry out trade. It's the essence of good living, providing great...

I don't understand the high ratings. Apart from being reasonably priced (payed 22 GBP for a sturdy breakfast for two, including coffee) I don't see what's so good about it. I would not recommend making a detour for it. But if you're in the neighbourhood and need a quick takeway with decent coffee at a reasonable price, go for it.... More

Well adapted takeover of the next door premises provides a much bigger seating area, giving piles of room to sit and enjoy this smart eatery, close to the Thames and five minutes pleasant walk from St Katharine Docks. They open early and a wide variety of breakfast items are available. I have enjoyed their substantial lunchtime meals, served briskly by... More
