...but that wouldn't be fair. Service is excellent, attentive, friendly, accommodating staff (who didn't mind when I sat there for hours, even though the venue is on the cosy side), good short menu (they're not trying to do too much), and adorable ambiance--very kitsch. Looking forward to many future visits.

We had a great experience at Royal Teas, really good service and wonderful food. We ordered two cream teas for four of us (we added two extra hot drinks) and there was SO much food: massive salmon sandwiches, really nice scones, and two pieces of really good cakes from a great selection available. At a cost of £7.95 per cream... More

This restaurant somehow ended up in a my travel book for families visiting London. Not for families, big mistake. Our group took the long walk to find this tiny enclave well off the beaten path. The 9 of us had to sit at multiple tables. Food was fine but we alone over whelmed the dirty looking staff. One tiny washroom,... More

Really pleased to have discovered this lovely place! A cosy and slightly eclectic interior, friendly staff and great prices for the quality and quantity that you receive. I went around lunchtime on a sunny Friday and it wasn't too busy, but be warned that this cafe is very small so I'm not sure how busy it gets at other times.... More

I've been in this little bistro twice and in both cases I enjoyed the experience. The ambient is quite small, but considering that it is located in a quiet area it is not crowded. They serve their dishes with vintage pottery that contribute to make the atmosphere romantic and authentic. The food is amazing, good quality, cooked with love by... More

Hidden gem in the Greenwhich area. I loved it for the style and great food. It's really cheap if compared with similar cafes and they have a big variety of delicious homemade cakes. I tried the coconut one and was amazing! My favourite meal for brunch is Eggs Royale and here it was really good. Also the apple, carrot and... More

I would eat here every morning if I could! The service is great and the food is amazing. I've never had a poached egg here that wasn't absolutely perfect. The eggs royale in particular is just lovely, but if you're really hungry, go for the veggie breakfast! If you're coming at the weekend make sure you get in at opening... More

Step down into this small café for tea, coffee and cake and the light lunch menu. The bright small front room with 3 or 4 tables leads to a darker rear room near the serving counter where space is at an even higher premium. Delicious cakes (on show in back room) taste as if Granny has just made them.

Away from the main tourist drag in Greenwich, Royal Teas is everything you would expect from a local independent cafe - really good food, friendly service, notice boards full of local information and cool art on the walls. The mostly veggie menu (salmon is a vegetable, right?) is nothing fancy, but the food is really tasty - I particularly recommend... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
