“An oasis of calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

I met my son from a train at Euston and less than 10 minutes later we were sitting down in a quiet room drinking tea.
I had a tasty salad and quiche which was very reasonably priced.
Lovely ambience.
What a find.

“Always great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Always go here when go to British Library - less crowed and more relaxed. Also right opposite Euston Station and far better then anything in the station if meeting people.

“Relaxed airy cafe, reasonable prices, good cake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Needed a place to get out of the rain so came here for a hot chocolate and slice of (very good) apple cake. £4.70 total which for here is very reasonable. It was busy (around 3pm) and clearly had lots of loyal customers. Nice place if you're in the area.

“Friends lives up to its name!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I often visit the British Library and the Quakers Cafe at Friends House is a great place to chill for breakfast or lunch. Although self-service the staff are friendly; food and drinks are good quality and healthy; and there are great books to browse on the shelves that surround the cafe.

“Excellent and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Brilliant. Service was really good and there was a really 'warm' feeling with the cafe. Lots of resources to browse. My other half is a veggie so it suited him well. And close to the Wellcome Trust museum as well.
