The menu here is simple. It's a small intimate sort of place with 2 pavement tables and perhaps a group of 6 can sit at the largest table. Then perhaps a 3 tables for 2 and 1 for 4 people. You can order wraps, natchos, toast with a variety of toppings, zillions of cakes and they do a very... read more

Great vibe in this nice little place. Not as busy as it's off the tourist track. Good coffee and decent service - the people are friendly. The meals were all simple but well prepared and great portion sizes.

I live locally and go here regularly, it's a quirky cafe, with quirky staff who are friendly and never make you feel rushed. Great coffee, breakfasts, soups and their afternoon tea is a very good deal. The comment below about racial discrimination is frankly ridiculous and deserves being exposed as such. The staff are from all over world, and this... More

I don't often write poor reviews and I don't particularly like writing them but I had a bad experience here & it seems other reviewers have suffered similar. I've passed this cafe a lot & tried it for the first time; it was empty when I arrived. Whilst I waited for my coffee a group came in with a dog??... More

Love this place! I live 3 mins walk from the cafe and go every weekend for breakfast no fail! Helpful friendly service. Well priced and they've got it right on just about all of their dishes. Really simple but scrumptious menu! Always reliable for a good breakie or midday easy lunch. They do a great Nachos! They also have one... More

My friend and I came here one saturday morning hoping to get a simple and nice breakfast. The tea room is very small. We had a look both outside and inside and couldn't see any free table. The staff saw us looking but didn't greet us or say anything, or even register us standing at their door. So we stopped... More

Royal teas is perfectly situated and fits in the the Royal Hill vibe of well thought out, small, intimate shops/cafes. Went for breakfast and had lovely juices, coffees and all able to find something to eat. Had to create our own atmosphere as no music. Limited seating was a shame as people were hanging around eager to jump into our... More

Went here for brunch midweek. The food was lovely and the coffees were excellent. The prices are a bit steep but the food qualify makes it worth it. Only negative was the staff were a bit rude and seemed uninterested.

We had a late sunday morning breakfast here. I had Eggs Florentine on a muffin and my husband had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on granary bread. The food was lovely and tasty. All freshly cooked and my spinach wasn't watery. Nothing worse than a soggy muffin...

I had high hopes for this place going on previous reviews however find it quite hard to find something positive to say. Having just been for lunch we found the service quite terrible and food (at least what of it turned up) somewhat underwhelming. I ordered the cream tea which seemed to consist of a stale sandwich missing ingredients listed... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
