Service was superb and the lady was very attentive. When I asked for no beans or tomato (criminal I know...) she forced me to have something else in their place. Extra sausage and hash brown it was. I would not hesitate to recommend

Recommended by hotel for breakfast. Basic-looking cafe but perfectly comfortable and the food is great. Variations on traditional breakfasts from veggie to supersize. Coffee was so good I had an extra cup. Really friendly. And excellent value for money. Very much recommend it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this amazing review. Bacon is bacon, egg is an egg, what makes the difference is how to cook them. Our chef can cook them to perfection!

For sure not a high sophisticated and poshy place to eat (in terms of furniture and compared to Breakfast Restaurants in Germany and Austria) but in terms of food: For sure the best english breakfast I ever had!

I’ve been to Barbarellas twice during my stay in London. The English breakfast is just the best I’ve ever had! And I must mention how kind and helpful the staff is! I’ll certainly go back when I visit London again!

Was recommended by the hotel concierge to stop by Barbarella's for traditional English breakfast during our stay and was not disappointed at all. Staff was very friendly and made every effort to explain the menu and made suggestions on what we should order. This place...More

Reminded me of Sunday breakers with Mum when I was a lad. Pictures is the Early Breakfast. Needless to say, it was delicious. The service was spot on.
