“Had a nice afternoon Brunch”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We visited on a Sunday afternoon after spending the morning at London 2012. We sat outside for brunch in the mid afternoon. I always love a place that can serve brunch all afternoon.

We had fresh juice drinks, but others sitting around us were drinking Pimms that looked great.

I had an omelette that I really enjoyed. My wife had poached eggs that were well overcooked, so she did not really enjoy hers.

Service was friendly. We sat outside, and given that Lacy Rd is relatively quiet, so it was very pleasant sitting outside on a Sunday afternoon.

“Average and Overpriced”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Went there for breakfast with 3 friends, didn't get off to a good start when after 5 min we eventually had to ask for the menus to brought over, granted they were busy but normally you bring menus over when you seat customers.

We all ordered the "ultimate full English" for what i consider to be a pricey £8.35 (and that doesn't include a tea or coffee). The "ultimate" full English comes with 1 sausage, 2 bacon, 1 egg, a tiny piece of black pudding, a tablespoon serving of beans and mushrooms, 1 hash brown and 1 ready made bubble and squeak and 2 "slices" of toast. As you can see from the picture they had cut slices of toast in triangles and what you actually got was about half a slice of toast which i thought was a bit tight. As an fan of the traditional full English breakfast i think it should always come with 2 bacon, 2 sausages and 2 eggs.

Taste wise the food was average not stand out but not bad, would rather they did away with the bland frozen and re-heat bubble and squeak for an extra sausage, bacon had either been reheated or microwaved cooked as it the white residue on the meat which wasn't great. As my friend said, the only thing that is "ultimate" about this breakfast is the profit margins.

We ordered 3 milkshakes at a pricey £3.70 each although they were good and a glass of apple juice, trouble is they arrived about 5 min after they brought out the food.

They stick about 12% service on top which i thought was a bit cheeky. There are better cafes in the putney area serving breakfast and whilst the lunch food we saw being served out looked quite nice i probably wont be tempted to come back here.

“Amazing Food”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

I went to Moomba in Putney for a Valentines day dinner with my girlfriend! The Food was amazing- the best I've had in a long time! Entree, Main & Desert for 28pounds- not bad value at all and definitely worth it with the quality of food we received!! We've also been for breakfast previously which was great too!
