Needed coffee after travelling up to see the "Trooping". Absolutely crowded, but good service and good coffee. Only downside was a long queue for the one toilet, but on request they opened up the disabled toilet which alleviated the queue somewhat.

While at Heathrow and waiting for the bus to Gatwick I grabbed a latte and a meatball sandwich that I had toasted. It was delicious and recommended.

Quick breakfast and great seats sat in the window. Extremely busy and the staff coped well with what seemed to be a new deli menu - all in all a decent place for some breakfast.

Visited London and called into Café Nero, Trafalgar Square for coffee. We sat at the one available table which was filthy. We asked for someone to clean it and were looked at as though we were mad. Eventually someone did come over. The most miserable...More
