Set Breakfast

The cafe is a charming spot. I ordered the set breakfast with sausage, bacon, egg, and a choice of beans or tomatoes, toast or bread and coffee or tea. I chose the beans, toast and coffee. This was a delightful breakfast. The beans were delicious and my overall favorite portion of the meal. Please... read more

Very busy place, very affordable food, and a very flexible attitude. When it's ready it gets shouted out by a fairly terrifying woman behind the counter who seems to switch seamlessly from bellows to soft order taking! Very good selection in this old style café and one I'll look out for again, especially given its prime location. Best breakfast for... More

Not sure where to start, rarely do people here give a negative comment on this place and to be honest I don't think the owner gives a stuff about trip advisor. His priority is his regular clients not people looking for an authentic English trip advisor breakfast. His prices are cheap, very cheap for the location in fact. Having come... More

Food: OK, cheap and plentiful, go for bread rather than toast with a fry-up - you get two large slices of soft white bloomer rather than the supermarket stuff they serve as toast. Chips were good. Atmosphere: Good, busy caff with lots of hustle and bustle. Now the not so good bits: If you are in a large party you... More

Me & the hubby were craving a good fry up after a week in Turkey, we found this fantastic cafe and they don't fail to disappoint! It's a quirky cafe with a sort of 1940's style decor, plastic chairs (which are comfy) menu board with plastic push in letters and numbers, it was clean and a breath of fresh air... More

Never tried a full English? This is definitely the place to lose your full English virginity to. The food is great and really reasonably priced considering its location (cheap, really!). The atmosphere is great and the decor is retro (doubt it had been renovated ever since it was first opened). Had breakfast here before work with colleagues as well as... More

The queue to place your order gives you a clue - this place is very popular and deservedly so. Decor is a bit above ordinary British caff - it's certainly clean and welcoming. I had the breakfast deal and added black pudding and bubble and squeak. The additions were great but unnecessary - this is a serious breakfast cooked perfectly.... More

This place is a bit of a legend in London. So often such places disappoint, not just in terms of food, but in atmosphere too. This does not. Every day it is packed with all walks of life, suits mix with hi vis jackets, everyone there to enjoy the very best bacon sarnie or fry up in London, if not... More

Originally from England but now residing in the US, this was a family trip planned so as to allow my brother and I to show my wife and her American family the sights of London. No English trip could be considered complete without sampling a true traditional English breakfast. This is the ONLY place to eat such. The food is... More

Excellant food and once you've ordered - hot and fresh. Make a point of taking friends from UK and especially "Over the Pond" for a fantastic authentic good old English fry up.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
