Really enjoyable. Had a chicken burger and a lovely elderflower drink. Great location and good service. Tried to go again last time we were in London but it was closed. Will try again next time!

Just a short walk from Tower Hill tube. Lovely friendly staff. Nice surroundings in the grounds of an old church. Great service and obliging to variations to standard options. They do an early bird special where a full English breakfast is £6.50 before 11 am. Which includes a juice or hot drink. It's good value. The coffee was good. The... More

We called here for breakfast early in the morning. The decor and ambience is very nice and the staff are also. There is a variety of seating from regular to armchairs and sofas. We had the Full English breakfast (me) and Eggs Benedict (her). Both were excellent, delicious and generous portions. Great value. Highly recommended.

Great location for us trying to grab a quick bite to eat Sunday morning before an event, however we were disappointed in the food for what we paid for. the full English was discounted for the time of day but barely covered the plate portion wise (1 sausage, 1 bacon rasher, etc). They forgot to bring the toast and when... More

Nice and quiet little place for an inexpensive Full English breakfast (especially before 11 am for the early bird special) - came here at 9:30 am on a Friday and the place was quite empty. Food was average. Very good location between Monument and London Tower with a nice garden and outdoor seating.

The breakfast was tasty and good for the price, staff were friendly and were pleasant and the central location made it even better.

The location is excellent, the menu is limited, the cappuccino is café au lait. We asked for freshly squeezed orange juice, which the waitress claimed she had, but it wasn't fresh at all and contained lots of ice. Shabby toilets.

I love it here - their cream teas are the best because they serve 'proper' home made cakes, not the fancy little French offerings you get in hotels! Plenty of sandwiches, scones, cakes, constant offers of refills of food and tea, all in a lovely cosy atmosphere with super friendly staff. always go there just for tea and cake if... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
