Great way to wake up!

After a night on the town, 10 of us "grumpy old folk" descended on The Kitchen Tower for an early breakfast. It was just perfect. Polite and quick service, good choice on the menu and the full English was as good as I've had. Very pleasant venue and excellent value for such a popular area.

We pre-booked, and were given a warm welcome. Shown to our reserved seats, a pot of welcome tea arrived promptly followed 10 mins later by a three tier platter of sandwiches, cakes, scones, cream and jam. All very fresh and delicious. They even gave us a doggie bag for the items we couldn't eat, as too full, to take home.... More

Whilst I was on duty for my London Ambassador shifts I decided to stop off for my lunch break at The Kitchen which is next door to the church. Last Saturday there was a wedding so I had to go elsewhere. On the Sunday, my fellow Ambassador and I had better luck. We found a table and were served swiftly.... More

Second visit to the Kitchen and was just as lovely as the first. Saturday lunchtime and got a table straight away. Location is quirky as it is part of the church. All food is delicious. Big protions and a lovely fresh cake cabinet. Reasonably priced for Central London. Service was quick and staff really friendly. Nice outside eating area.

My boss was over fron America and treated us to afternoon tea at The Kitchen. It was fabulous, the choice of cakes are amazing and the staff and service was great. I will look forward to going back.

Good value, and a lot off cake! Would liked some more fillings on the sandwiches, and some of the cakes just tasted suger.. The chocolatecake was Nice and so was the scones. Didn't care much for the clutted cream, as it tasted liked butter - but seems like this is the way the English like it ;) Would go again.

We really enjoyed our meal at The Kitchen. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted very warmly. The meal choices all looked good. I ordered a vegetarian English breakfast and it was delicious. Thee egg was cooked perfectly and I loved the vegetable sausage. The restaurant has a light, bright and warm atmosphere. Our server suggested we visit... More

We came here for breakfast early in the morning before our visit to the Tower of London. It was an all-around wonderful experience - very friendly staff, delicious and affordable food, and the best porridge we've had to date. After trying this porridge, we've sampled - in vain - countless of other versions throughout the UK and Ireland, and nothing... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
