OK, here goes with my opinion....
It's a Cafe - it's what it says on the sign. Despite what some of the negative reviewers say, it makes no pretensions to be anything else, so don't judge it by what it isn't.
There are a couple of comments here that mention a slightly "threatening" atmosphere, but if you want to feel really threatened, go to a Cafe a bit further East of here and see how you get treated. My view is that tourists as well as locals could eat here easily, and just blend in with what is quite unique in this environment. There's a bit of showmanship with the shouting of orders etc. but the overriding positive is the breakfast - it's done with a lot of noise and passion and is made from great quality ingerdients. The English breakfast isn't something to be linger over with meagre portions of skinny this and that while you mess around on Facebook - it's a good old shot of substance for the day ahead. If you want to spend three times as much and wait in a queue for a fancy coffee then go somewhere else and be one of the sheep.
Everywhere has it's place in your life and schedule, and this is the big weekend breakfast for me. Would I come here every morning - no. Would I come here before work - possibly depending on what the day has in store. Would I come here after a nght on the beer - absolutely. A lazy Staurday mid-morning - too right......
If you prefer an old English boozer over a branded lager and premixed cocktail warehouse you'll love this place. If you you don't, then you'll probably prefer Starbucks.......but I'd be interested to see you order a skinny winny frappucino with an extra decaf shot here!
One criticism - I saw a salad on the menu......?
