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.

Before our visit of the Tower of London, we had a full English breakfast at this little restaurant. The breakfast was a big one with egg, ham, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, and toast. The food was average with no outstanding-ness. Service was fine. The place was not busy at all, it was about 9:00 am and there were maybe four tables... More

I had seen a TV show called "The Fabulous Baker Brothers" in Brazil and after planning out trip to London I decided to eat at this restaurant. What a disappointment! My husband and I ordered the burger we had seen on TV called the Beefeater Burger. It was nothing like on TV, no special crown shaped bun and the patty... More

Popped in for lunch on a busy Friday. Both of us had an all day breakfast that was delicious. Fruit juice (Orange and mango) were fresh. Waiters very helpful and friendly. Next door to All Hallows' church that is well worth a visit.

We took my mum up to London to see the poppies at The Tower for her birthday and wanted somewhere close by for afternoon tea. Found The Kitchen on Google and emailed to see if it would be ok for 7 of us to turn up at 4.15pm on a Sunday afternoon for afternoon tea. Sally (assume the owner -... More
