Loved the vibe of this place, we were visiting on vacation from the States and in search of a traditional full English breakfast for our first full day in London. Even though it was mid morning already on a weekday, the place was still hustling and bustling full of customers and a long line to order. Everything went quickly though, we were sitting and eating our breakfast after a shorter than expected wait. Cashier and owner working the front counter are very friendly!
A gem of a place and very good value for central London. £5 will get you a good-sized main meal (including perfect chips) and a soft drink. Easy to see why it's kept going since 1946.
Pretty cool no frills local place. Went for breakfast. It was packed on a late Saturday morning with the line to the door. There was a 20-30 minute wait, but food was well priced. Bacon was a bit salty for my taste, but maybe that's how it is here?? Everything else was great. Coffee tasted delicious. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in a quiet neighborhood.
Okay people it's just eggs and bacon. If you want to stand in line for 30 minutes you won't be disappointed but you won't be awed either. And because of the line out the door you won't be permitted to linger while your food digests. BUT, when the cashier calls your plate for pickup it makes it all worthwhile. There's just no way that kind of volume and tenor is coming from such a lady. And a lady she is. It is otherworldly.
Best full English breakfast around, for a great price. Seriously the best friend eggs I've ever had. Bubble & squeak is good too. Next time we are in London, we'll be back!
