Given it is adjacent to the Tower of London this is a good well priced breakfast. My wife was very pleased with the Salmon and Scrambled Eggs, I had the "Kitchen Sink" mmmmm, be aware your waiter may not offer you the choices. We had to specify Juice, bread type, egg type but this wasn't a problem.

This cafe is in a wonderful location within yards of the Tower of London, with a wide variety of food and drinks. During the last few weeks I was a customer at this little oasis on seven occasions, both on my own, in a group and with my granddaughter and on six occasions this lovely cafe was let down by... More

Found this place by accident on the way to a costs a fortune chain coffee shop,, could see the sign but not the entrance. Welcomed by a very hospitable lady Sally. Big comfy sofa and a great view of all the delicious homely food being served. Stayed for two lots of drinks and a nice piece of sticky toffee cake.... More

After visiting the poppies at the Tower we decided uponThe Kitchen@Tower for lunch. We selected a table outside and waited to be served. Two more couples followed us in about 5 minutes later and were immediately given menus. We asked for menus and were ignored, so we up and left.

We booked breakfast here before going to see the poppies at the Tower. Service was superb - fast, courteous and efficient. We all had the Early Bird breakfast (before 11am) which was excellent - this included drink and toast with butter and jam or marmelade. All in all a great place to stop in the city.

I highly recommend having breakfast here before you spend your day at the Tower of London. The serves was excellent and there a good choice of breakfast foods. I had the American breakfast, and a scone. The scone was incredible, it came with fresh cream and strawberries. If you are spending the day at the Tower of London eat here... More

Sad to say my visit to The Kitchen at the Tower was a disappointment. My wife and I decided to eat here after seeing the restaurant on TV in The Fabulous Baker Brothers show. On arrival we were shown to a table in the sunshine and a drink order was taken. Drinks arrived quickly and our food order was taken.... More

In need of revival and at the previous suggestion of one of London's Olympic volunteers, we arrived at this oasis this afternoon. The welcome was wonderful, the tea good, cake scrummy and the atmosphere very restorative. Modest in price, great location, staff attitude that was superb - I didn't get the manager/ supervisor's name but I know she is a... More
