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

Breakfast or lunch if you are looking for good quality, wholesome, freshly prepared food and you are in the area then look no further. The service is friendly as you would expect from an Italian owned and run establishment, quantities are big, prices are not. The bacon sandwiches have bacon spilling out of the sides despite the huge slices of... More

I just came from having breakfast in Pumblechook's. It was my 3rd time there and my colleagues have taken to going here every friday morning for breakfast. The bread is good, the bacon was thick and not watery and the eggs cooked just the way I asked. The price is perfectly reasonable and the place is clean. All in all,... More
