Very small place, but you should wait for a table because it is a great price/quality rate. The full english breakfast is delicious and not too expensive.

Recommended by friends that visited this family run cafe many times. I ordered an English breakfast which was nice but the place is really busy with limited seats. If you are close by give it a try!

Very busy, limited seats but fast service. Fresh orange is gorgeous, husband had full English and I had Brooklyn scramble (eggs on toast with salmon too no sauce) portions were good, food fresh. Good value as it came to £18.40

We went here for brunch and had to wait around 15-20 minutes for 5 of us (at around 11:15am), but ordered while we were waiting so our food came very fast! The food was fantastically priced (£3 for French toast!), and everything was great! I...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
