As we had been let down by the appalling breakfast experience at Travelodge Covent Garden during our couple of days in London we decided that on our departing day we would find somewhere to eat out for breakfast before catching the tube to Euston station. Having looked on line and found this to be a literal stones throw away from the Travelodge, and with good reviews we decided to go. We weren’t disappointed. Really friendly, quick and reasonable prices, we were lucky with our timing to catch a few tables spare but it was clearly popular as it filled up quickly, and people were queuing / waiting for tables after we had sat down. Three of us had a full cooked breakfast but my son had the eggs royale. There was lots of choice if you wanted something different however and /or vegetarian as I also looked at the fruit and yogurt, but chose the full. My husband asked if our hour time slot we had would be ok and they said it was fine. We were indeed served within a short length of time and enough time to catch our train. Would definitely visit again.

Based our Trip on other reviews. This really is a small cafe that is full with 10 people but they do serve a very tasty and inexpensive breakfast. Coffee also spot on. Don’t expect haute cuisine but decent honest food and friendly efficient service

They say good things come in small packages and this place is small but very good. We felt so lucky to get a table for breakfast. Everything is freshly made. The staff all friendly. I had the Eggs Benidct Royale, my partner had omelette.. we had 1 coffee 1 bottled water and a fresh strawberry smoothie for slightly over £20. One of the best breakfasts we have ever had in London. Straight at the side of travelodge Covent Garden.. if you are in the area go.. if not it is worth seeking out.

That morning I was checking out from Travelodge hotel. It was very cold to be August, super windy, I had a look at the menu outside their shop. Shop curtain was disgustingly dirty. I didn't want English breakfast because I wanted to have lunch after an hour so couldn't fill my stomach too much, neither I wanted hot drinks to avoid the need of using the toilet. A lady came outside and convinced me to buy food there. English breakfast was 7£ With sausages, bacon, eggs, tomato, mushroom, beans and toast. I asked if was possible to have just the toast of the entire english breakfast, with a spoon of jam, of course she said yes xD. She asked me if I wanted a smoothie as I didn't want coffee,I said yes, asking for one with banana inside, otherwise, it would be too watery. I had a banana apple blackcurrant (Price written outside was 3.90£). When breakfast arrived I wanted to cry. I received a meager toast, not even hot..maybe toasted 7 seconds. Then the terrifying part: the smoothie! I imagined fruit mixed with milk or only fruit.. instead it was a giant glass full of crushed ice with fruit (but didn't taste of fruit, only frozen water). I wanted something fast instead I had to wait 30 minute to drink 50% of that thing... it was horrible and froze my esophagus hurting for a short but intense time. Why, why, why add 90% of ice to make it look bigger? Makes so sense. It was already so cold and windy and I was sitting outside alone and just wanted something quick. I paid 7.90£ for a glass of ice and a toast not toasted. 4£ for bread ahaha, worst breakfast in my life. My fault I didn't ask the price before, they just take advance of unaware tourists. In 30 minutes nobody came out to ask me if everything was ok or I wanted something else.. I wish I walked away leaving that ice there.

Visited this lovely little place whilst staying at Covent Garden; I’d read the reviews beforehand so I had high hopes for a great breakfast. It didn’t disappoint! It’s a small intimate place with only a handful of tables - so close that you can’t help but chat away to the person next to you. I had an omelette, my husband the cooked breakfast - both were delicious and very reasonably priced. Mind you, every dish looked delicious! This was our first visit but by no means our last....

My husband and I stayed in London for a few days, and wanted to try breakfast locally instead of at our hotel. With an abundance of eateries in the area it was hard to know where to choose to eat. I found out about Cafe de Provence on Trip Advisor, and was keen to try it based on the many excellent reviews. They were't wrong! The cafe is situated on a street I probably would have not bothered going down tbh, but I'm glad we went for it. The cafe is humble looking from the outside but is a treasure inside :) Spotlessly clean and very homely, I'd recommend getting there early as seating is quite limited. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. There is a huge selection at breakfast, and they cater for veggie and vegan diets very well. On our first visit I had a vegetarian cooked breakfast, and my husband had a salmon dish. The second day I tried the rye breakfast (poached eggs, large mushroom, tomato, avocado and rocket on rye bread). The portions were generous, and the food freshly prepared and very tasty. The freshly squeezed orange juice is delicious, and they have a good range of teas, coffees and smoothies. Great value, at around £7.00 for a large veggie cooked breakfast (at time of writing). We were very impressed and went back the next day. London is a pricey place to eat, but I'd definitely recommend this cafe if you're in the area.

My son and I stayed at Covent Garden Travelodge. This little cafe is directly below the steps leading to the hotel. What a find! The food, the service, the prices are outstanding. We had belly-busting breakfasts over 2 days with tea/coffee and never paid more than £7 a head. This is truly exceptional value in central London. The gentleman behind the counter was so nice. I cannot praise him enough for his kindness and generosity. In a big city, this little cafe is a diamond and a real find. If I lived in London, I'd come back for breakfast every weekend. You must visit to see for yourself if staying nearby

My Mum has been working away in London since last week, staying round the corner from this venue and eating there regularly. She loves the food and raves to me every day about how delicious everything is and such good value. They stepped it up a notch yesterday however. She arrived late, tired and a bit broken, and they had already closed. She had been working, surveying another restaurant, but hadn't eaten there because she wanted to eat at Cafe de Provence again. Obviously she was a bit gutted. She actually walked away then went back to check opening times before walking away again. Amazingly, the chap working (I think the owner but not sure), saw her outside and recognised her, went out to stop her leaving and invited her in and fed her beautiful food. She asked him to just surprise her and he produced some gorgeous aubergine dish, great coffee and biscuits that reminded her of her Italian grandparents. He even gave her his card so she could let him know if she was going to be late back again. She was so delighted and grateful. What wonderful service, hospitality and kindness. Thankyou kind sir for looking after my Mum. What a gent. I will definitely make it a point to visit next time I'm down from Yorkshire.

I would highly recommend this cafe. We had our breakfast there on Monday Feb 24th. I had smoked salmon and avocado benedict and my husband had a full English, we both had lattes. The meal came to £19.20 and was excellent value. The quality of the food was first class and the serving staff were really attentive to our needs. Next time we are in London we will make a beeline for this cafe.

I spent a weekend with friends in London and finding a good-cheap place for breakfast in Covent garden is a bit difficult. I found that amazing place, it is a small business. The owner was really kind and made us feel really welcome, suggested us different options in the menu. The breakfast was amazing, good quality products homemade with a really good price. I really love that they have Moroccon mind tea. I would love to go back anytime soon.

We were so glad we found this absolute gem. Inside it is small with just a few tables but so worth waiting. The breakfasts are amazing and cooked freshly to order, Eggs Benedict was so good and we have eaten at many top restaurants but this is up there with the best of them. It was not exceedingly expensive either, the staff were lovely and it had a very relaxed feel about it. Will definitely return.

What a fantastic little gem this is. The breakfast we had was really good value for money and tasted really fresh, it was just what we needed on a Monday morning. The staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome in the Cafe. It’s located just a short walk from Covent Garden and well worth a visit, we will definitely return on our next visit to London. Thanks very much Martin, Helen & Chloe Blomfield

We were searching for a place for breakfast near Covent Garden that would please adults and fussy children and this was great. It made me think that if I was more local or worked nearby I’d eat there a lot more. I had the full English which was good, my wife had the loaded bagel with smoked salmon and poached eggs which was to die for. The kids were happy with croissants and pain au chocolat. Freshly squeezed juices and coffee and all for £35 or so. We arrived and the staff asked a couple to move so we could put two tables together and could not have looked after us better. Room for only 10 inside and about 6 outside this place clearly does a roaring takeaway business. A slightly pretentious name for a totally unpretentious place.

I visited Cafe de Provence for breakfast during my recent stay at Covent Garden. Impressive reviews for this place kept it under my radar for some time, so I didn't waste first opportunity when I was in the area. I ordered English Breakfast with Coffee and Orange Juice. The staff of this Cafe was adequately attentive but they had some refrigerator problem that day, so all of them were distracted and focused elsewhere. This hinders my review to give an honest opinion about their service, As for the breakfast, it was really good and everything was so fresh. Not the best breakfast in London but definitely worth a shot. The highlight of this cafe is value for money. Therefore, a lot of locals hang around in addition to tourists. For such fresh food in Covent Garden area, you can't get anything at even double the price elsewhere in central London. Overall, a small but good cafe that's easy on the pocket.

We saw all the great reviews so went for lunch. We wanted to love this place but it is pokey inside with just a few tables and customers stand over you queuing when you are eating. No salad bar. Had a salad and a baguette - the baguette was very basic not even a side salad or garnish of any sort. The juice was good and the staff friendly.

If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
