This restaurant was just across from my hotel. It is small and not particularly fancy, but the food was good, reasonably priced and hit the spot when eating alone after a day of meetings. They also sell take away food, which would be welcome if you live or work in the area.

We decided to eat here since it was close to our hotel for breakfast. Beautiful, small, and great English Breakfast. Pricing was reasonable.

I wrote an earlier review about the good food and wine here, and forgot to mention the tiramisu. You have to experience it, it is authentic and delicious.

The place is simple and has a traditional Italian menu with a selection of pastas, pizzas and a few beef and fish dishes. My pasta was good, not remarkable. Decent wine by the glass. For desert an honest fresh tiramisu.

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+...

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.
