I tried this place for the first time, for breakfast, at the weekend. What an amazing find! Great food and coffee, and the service was excellent - the staff could not have done more for me and were so welcoming, even though they were busy. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxed place for a delicious... More

For more than 10 years my annual trips to Wimbledon have started with breakfast at the Troubadour. Yesterday however we were not able to eat there at all. We arrived just prior to 11:30 and were told that breakfast had finished and lunch hadn't started! We would not be able to order anything until service resumed at 12. I fail... More

Had breakfast there with some friends. The garden is very nice and the interior is nicely decorated. The food however was average, a bit on the pricey side and the waitress (manager?) was definitely rude. She was pushy, and we didn't feel welcome. Will not go there again.

I've been here a few times over the past few months and loved the breakfast menu. Thought it had lots to choose from. So brought my mother here to try it out (it's a one hour trip from my place by tube) and was so disappointed to see that the menu has changed so drastically. My favourite, the French toast,... More

I looked on Tripadvisor to see where a good breakfast was available near Earls Court. This place had quite a good write up. The service was good but the food was average at best. I do not feel like returning after the breakfast I had. The bacon and sausages were not of great quality and the presentation was poor to... More

The front desk clerk at my hotel suggested this place and was pretty good. The drinks were two for one and enjoyed the fish and chips, big portions, the drinks had WAY too much ice but oh well, thanks for a good meal.

After arriving from our long journey, we were ready for a hot meal. We were really early for dinner, 5:00 PM. The staff was pleasant and the place was empty. The food was ok. I had a risotto with peas. It was filling. I think people really come here for the atmosphere with the live music. While it's a charming... More

6 ladies on a Tuesday night on a visit to London happened across the little gem. Atmosphere great, staff amazing (thanks Oliver) and food tasty but a little slow in delivery. Luckily we were having a great time so it wasn't so noticed. Would deffo return.

A very cosy place with fabulous coq au vin signature dish to share. Staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Very simple traditional cuisine, tasty and filling.

Description
'With more soul than a millipede wearing size 17 boots, ceilings and walls strewn with the instrumental heirlooms of a bygone bohemia, this 50s cafe screams throw-back. Successfully and audaciously blending 50s coffee bar, wine bar, club, music venue and breakfast bar with an easy smoothness, this live music haven is the cornerstone of Old Brompton Road, which has refreshingly resisted the modern humdrum of high street homogeny. Comfort and conviviality ooze as you can sup European classic wine offerings or New World fare, nurse a hot chocolate or bury your face in an omelette big enough to swallow you whole.' Alex HomerThe Troubadour, established in 1954, has gently expanded to include a larger cafe and live music club, an award winning garden, a specialist wine shop and comfy wine bar, a great gallery for exhibitions and parties and lastly a luxurious serviced appartments, The Garret, at the top of the building & The Eleanor on the floor below. A great place to relax while the world passes you by....
