I really liked this place but think I chose poorly foodwise. I saw Sunday roast lunch on the door as I went in and as it was a Sunday I thought I'd give it a try. Unfortunately it amounted to some quite nice lamb, but with salty potatoes and a massive floret of broccoli. And that was it. As I... More

This is a bit like the old greasy spoon cafe's. There was traders and locals eating in there. The portions were generous and the prices reasonable.

The fading signage outside, a fairly dour welcome on crossing the threshold and an empty cafe apart from one person who left shortly afterwards, did not seem a promising start. The food, when it arrived was OK, but no more than than that, and at a considerably higher price than better breakfasts I had eaten earlier in the week south... More

We divided on this place after seeing it was in the vicinity on trip advisor. Nice and quiet, cheap and good food, the full breakfast was just what the Dr ordered and set us up for our day ahead.

Yes, as the other reviews say, the breakfasts are great. But do try the other meals, really good 'cafe' food. They also do 'take away' including roasts etc., We tried takeaway fish and chips and the fish was excellent. A nice welcome, good food and reasonable prices, give it a try...

This place was recommended by a local shop worker and since we couldn't get a table at usual CG haunt tried here instead. The food is all homemade although possibly reheated as Shepherds Pie had that microwave char on the bottom (only slight) but all the pasta dishes were nothing short of perfect. Also the close proximity to the theaters,... More

This is a typical 'greasy spoon' style cafe with brilliant service and good honest food. The portions are impressive and the choice mouth watering. This cafe has been in covent garden for many years and still continues to produce quality at a very reasonable price. You will get an excellent meal at a sensible price, which is a good thing...
