We were in the area and had read good reviews and thought we would give it a go. We were not disappointed. The menu is varied and they have a special of the day plus a pie of the day. We arrived just after 11.30 and only managed to get a table by sharing and it seems it is best... More

I visited London overnight on Friday 17th October with my two daughters. We visited this beautiful cafe on our way to see the poppies. So glad that we did. We all had the 'early bird breakfast' which came with toast and tea. The food was delicious and fantastic value at £6.50. I would highly recommend this lovely cafe to anyone... More

Both of the things in my title are rare in London with paying a high price. Not here. We visited whilst on a day trip to look at the poppies and we chose the Kitchen as a result of other reviews below. We weren't disappointed. The "oo this is really nice" from my dearly beloved as she tucked into the... More

Shelley had already offered to stay open if our coach was a little late arriving from Oxford. It was not a little late, we were almost an hour late! We were greeted with warm welcoming smiles and speedy service. Without exception 48 travellers praised the setting, the staff, the service and the excellent beverages and the cakes. With grateful thanks... More

Six of us met for breakfast, early on a Saturday morning. Food was good, portions generous, value excellent, service satisfactory. A lot better experience than I've had at many more well known establishments.

This restaurant is a lovely independent cafe near the Tower, built onto the back of a church and is really refreshing architecturally with Glass on three sides. I had a great breakfast served by lovely staff and really enjoyed the feel and the buzz of the place. Why on earth would anyone go to a Starbucks when this place is... More

Says it all! Fab English breakfast, complete with toast and preserves, rounded off with steaming mug of latte. £6.50 in tourist London. Great service and in a wonderful spot. A real London treasure!

Restaurants that know what they are aiming at and do it well are always worth a visit. Those that obviously take such pride and joy in doing it are a must and Kitchen@theTower is a wonderful example of both. We had a party of 8 for my mother's 80th birthday yesterday and though absolutely packed the genuine friendliness and attentiveness... More

My husband and I like this place.... it isn't the cheapest place (this is central London!) but the food is good and the waitresses are great.... Not always expected in a tourist area like this. Is now one of our 2 regular weekend breakfast spots.
