I spent a weekend with some family in London and to keep hotel bills down, we chose to find our own breakfast. Therefore, we went looking in hope rather than expectation, and came across this little jewel. The City Coffee Lounge looks from the outside like any other small 'greasy spoon joint', but don't be fooled by appearances. The menu was quite varied with the standard fry ups, but also a many more continental options. Then, there were the filled rolls. We are talking here about rolls that would fill en elephant, so you can see why so many local contractors came here for snacks. I went for the scrambled egg with smoked salmon and a cup of tea, and it arrived fresh, in large quantities and very swiftly. The place was very clean and the staff very friendly. Also, the prices were very reasonable which for a London eaterie of any description, is a bit of a miracle in itself.
In conclusion, it's well worth a visit and is a credit to London!
