We looked around for a nice coffee shop while walking to south bank and stumbled across this little gem hidden away. coffee was 10/10 and the staff there were brilliant, I was immediately taken by their lush food on display and decided to take some pictures. We will visit again soon :)

Enjoyed the breakfast here. Smaller place with a great menu with something for everyone. Good coffee as well which can be hard to find in London. Good and quick service at a fair price. They do all meals but we only had breakfast there.

Often use Bon Gusto for informal lunch meetings. It's usually busy which makes for a great atmosphere in concert with efficient and friendly service. You typically can't go wrong with any of the pizza and pasta dishes, or a combination of two starters makes for a great lunch. Menu is fairly extensive and well priced, a pizza is around £10+...

The food was really delicious, but one of the waitresses was very unfriendly. She even wanted to throw us out, just because we were laughing a bit too loud.

Visited this restaurant for a second time in a couple of months for breakfast. Great location for a cheeky breakfast whilst waiting for your timeslot at Buckingham Palace hic is just up the road. Visited a second time when visiting London as enjoyed it first time! Well cooked breakfast, decent prices, great staff and very clean establishment.

This is a little gem that can be easily overlooked. The exterior does not do justice to what is inside. A typical true Italian restaurant where the food lives up to expectations. If staying nearby and you want a great meal you MUST give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

We spent 7 nights in London, had 6 breakfasts and 3 dinners here. The nights we weren't here we were at a show. Great food, reasonably priced, and the staff are brilliant. Made our trip to London even more special. Do yourself a favour.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
