Cheap food and cheap service. I can get behind affordable food but I don’t support staff being rude to customers. If you can handle rude staff then by all means eat here but I wouldn’t recommend.

Nice little sandwich shop at a convenient location. Just what I needed after a long walk of viewing the sights. The food was delicious and the service was fast.

Situated just a couple of minutes from several attractions, yet a sad waste of a building due to poor quality staff, appalling tasteless ditchwater instead of tea or coffee, and an appalling 2 star food hygiene rating. It looks clean enough although cheap and garish....More

We found this little sandwich bar by chance on a walking tour of London. It's tucked down a side street but their colourful little sign at the road end caught our eye. It is basic with plain tables and chairs but the food is amazing...More

I stopped here for a sandwich a week or so ago. It was quite mediocre, like the sort of sandwich we used to put up with in the 70's. It's probably quite cheap for the area, but that's no excuse. The fry-ups looked better. I'll...More

Stopped here for lunch with my husband. We found the service to be rather brusque. The menu listed tuna and egg salad sandwich, so we ordered two thinking it was tuna with egg. We ended up getting two egg salad sandwiches (which husband doesn’t like,)...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

The cafe I was referring to if Pickles is shut is Wesleys cafe at Central methodist hall, Parliament square. Website says it is open 7 days a week. Hope this helps.
