This is not luxury eating, but the money raised is for local good causes. Good for an informal lunch with friends or colleagues. It is like a school canteen with a small drink and sandwich refrigerator and a large serving hatch where you order hot...More

Great cafe, a couple of minutes from Westminster Abbey, just beyond the Cinnamon Club. Bright, spacious and with a very decent range of homemade food from soup, sandwiches and jacket potatoes to main meals. Very informal as it’s part of a community centre. The serving...More

I called in here with two colleagues for a coffee and ended up staying for lunch. The atmosphere is buzzing and although slightly utilitarian it is comfy and clean. I was impressed by the friendly staff. The food was not haute cuisine but it was...More

This place has a great feeling, much more simple and appealing than so many of the cafes and restaurants in central London. There's a nice sense of community and unfussiness. The food is tasty, good quality and great value, in a historic building, I loved...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,
