We (me and my girlfriend) visited London in a nearby hotel for a week. On a recommendation from a friend, we had our breakfast at Devine. The service is definitely an attraction of its own, with a highly inviting atmosphere where every customer is treated like they are special. We got recommendations on the menu, could mix-and-match items, and also got general advice and help for our London trip. Every day the owner remembered all the little details as well, which we appreciated for sure. The food is a great value with about 10 pounds per person (including drinks) to keep you full until dinner. Besides the classic English breakfast, there is a large selection of paninis and special ingredients such as salmon, avocado or blue cheese. We especially liked the baked beans and scrambled eggs. Service was fast with no noticeable delays, even when the restaurant was busy. When we visit London again we will be sure to return to Devine. Thank you very much for the great service.

We discovered this wonderful restaurant last October while staying near Tower bridge . We loved our delicious home made breakfasts and wonderful friendly staff . We have just returned home after another trip to London and we made 2 trips to Devine’s for breakfast. We received a lovely welcome back and the breakfasts are still outstanding( just love my Devine breakfast), so delicious. If you are staying near Tower Bridge, Tower of London or Tower Hill area, I definitely recommend you make a visit to Devine’s for a friendly welcome and delicious home cooked food at very reasonable prices. ( It was lovely seeing you and your wife again . Enjoyed our chats and your delicious food. Hope to you see you again next time we are visiting London . Take care.)

This little place was so unassuming and unexpected and the food was great, big portions, and unbelievable prices, especially for London. Don’t waste your money on a hotel breakfast in the Tower Hill area, this place has great cooked, full breakfasts and great paninis. The service was fast and so accommodating.

My wife and I stopped for breakfast at DeVine Restaurant Coffee Bar and couldn't have been more delighted. We were greeted warmly and made to feel right at home when we entered. The host was extremely personable and seemed genuinely interested in making sure our experience was wonderful. The prices were very reasonable. We both ate filling breakfasts for less than £20 total. The menu offered more than enough options for anyone to choose from. The food was cooked fresh within full view as we waited and was delicious! The coffee was exceptional as well. I was a bit disappointed by the single restroom but that is a very minor complaint compared with all DeVine had to offer for the price. And all that was within a 5 minute walk of the Tower of London entrance. If you're on a budget (or even if you're not) EAT HERE! You won't be disappointed.

If you want a cooked breakfast this is the place to go. It’s homely and your meal comes as if you were at home. You are welcomed with open arms and it’s seems that the priority is to make sure it’s customers have what they want. The menu is vast and covers from a cuppa and toast to a full full full breakfast and lots in between. If you just want 2 items or a full breakfast just ask and it will be granted. Whilst we visited ( 3 times) there were families, individuals, couples and locals having breakfast. We saw Americans, French, Spanish people eating there so word must have gone worldwide about this place. A rough idea of the cost :- 2 x Full English breakfast plus drinks £16:60 2 x Breakfast Baps plus drinks £14:20 Anything over £3:00 payment by card is required but remember there’s a tip tin on the counter for the staff so a few coins in the tin was appreciated. I only tip when the service and food is good. We tipped every time. The only problem you will have is finding it look for the underpass. It’s only 5 minutes walk from the Tower of London

I first noticed de Vine cafe earlier this week when I was walking along Vine Street and logged it away to try later. Today I called in, initially just for a coffee to fill time before lunch and to shelter from the rain. As I walked in I was greeted like an old friend, asked what I wanted and shown to a table. My coffee was freshly made and served to me and I must say it was delicious, just how I like my coffee. As I sat there I noticed all customers being treated the same way, there is a genuine friendliness towards everyone. I was offered a second cup and happily accepted as I was enjoying the atmosphere. Whilst I sat there I was aware of delicious food smells as people received their orders. Eventually, I decided to change my plans and stay on for lunch. Being both a vegetarian and having a gluten intolerance I was concerned that I may struggle. This was not to be, I was told that if I could not find anything on the menu then something could be made to order for me. I settled on an old favourite, cheese and mushroom omelette with half chips and half salad. The omelette was light and fluffy and cooked to perfection and I had a good balance of chips and salad. The cafe itself is spotless and, along with the aforementioned friendly atmosphere, not to mention the amazing value for money, I will certainly return the next time I am in London. This is a place not to be missed and certainly makes a change to the sterile coffee chains that abound in this area. It is really convenient for Tower Hill and Fenshurch Street. One not to be missed.

The full English breakfast was SO good I had to have it twice! The food was not only delicious but served with a generous portion for only 8£. I don’t eat mushrooms so they were able to substitute them with a perfectly crispy hashbrown, which went great with the eggs and beans. The storefront is small and unassuming, but the food and service made this a perfect little gem for breakfast and lunch. Sid is such a delight to chat with and he makes time to check in on how your food is and how your day is going, even when it’s busy! Highly recommend!! I’ll be sure to visit again the next time I’m in London.

My sister and I were only spending 2 nights in London. We searched for somewhere local for breakfast and found this hidden gem. The guy who served us was so welcoming/friendly/professional - gave us advice on what to see locally etc. The breakfast was cooked fresh and was excellent value for London. Please don't use chain cafes/bars etc when there are places like this in London. We were due to go back the next morning for our last day breakfast but had to cut our trip short due to illness, so we never got to return but when in London again i will definitely be visiting this cafe again and recommending to all my friends who visit London in future.

If you dare walk in under this railway bridge, you’ll find a well-cooked breakfast in a very friendly environment. Good selection ogöf breakfast alternatives at very good prices. No problem getting energy to last you well into lunchtime, and since they also have a good selection of panini and lighter lunch options, you could return for lunch :-)

London's best kept secret best stay hidden. I don't get the hype, had plenty of meals (at least 6) here and none of them were worth the price, for 1 or 2 pounds more I can have much nicer food elsewhere. Neither myself nor my friend were able to finish the pasta it was overcooked and simply didn't taste nice. The sandwiches are fine, very mid, the chicken is very dry, the bacon looks grey, just not very appealing. Lastly they definitely don't serve everything fresh, you can't convince me some is this food is not a day or more old. The proprietor is very friendly and I haven't tried the breakfast but I won't be coming back.

I have already responded to your review on google and don’t see why there seems to be a vendetta by you against us , I hope u find a better way to spend your time than pick on a small family run establishment that is still trying to recover from the effects that covid 19 has had in our business as well as the cost of living crisis going on, we provide a great value meal at a great price to our customers and are appreciated by customers that visit from all over the world, so your little vendetta will not effect our business as anyone reading this would have no doubt checked out our fantastic ratings on numerous platforms and that is what keeps us going, good luck to you and I hope life treats you good

Not only do the staff treat you like family from the moment you step in the door, but the deliciousness of the food matches the quality of service. My traveling companion and I enjoyed a piping-warm, hearty breakfast at an incredibly decent price. There's a genuine, home-cooked, hand-crafted quality to every dish. For example, the salmon carried an extra hint of "smokiness", giving it a pleasant flavor and texture somewhere between sashimi and grilled. Located under the bridge, De Vine is a true hidden gem in London and well worth the visit for a classic, British breakfast, no matter what you're craving. (I'd certainly be a regular if I didn't live "across the pond.")

Whenever I am working in that part of London, i ALWAYS find the time to visit for breakfast. The second that you walk through the door you are warmly greeted by one of the friendliest guys that you are ever likely to meet. The food is also good, hot and plentiful, and very reasonably priced too. You're made to feel at home, and are never rushed, and the guy in charge also has that wonderful knack of being able to read people well enough to know if they want to chat or want to be left alone, which is invaluable! All in all, I honestly can't fault the place, and wholeheartedly recommend it to all. Great food, great service, great staff, and great prices. What more could you want?

On my visits to London I always stay in the City, and have now been to Devine a number of times for breakfast. Due to the travel restrictions, it's been about 2 years since my last trip, but last week I finally managed to get back to the old country. I was slightly nervous as to their survival but much to my relief, it was still there! I went twice this time in three days, both times great service, great banter, great food - a proper breakfast with eggs, sausages, bacon and beans but you can have what you want. It was much quieter than before but so was the City, hopefully as the world learns to live with C19 and the "new normal" things will pick up.

This is the friendliest place in the whole city by far. The owner was very cheerful and helpful with picking the right order and we’ve felt like at home. The food was delicious and the prices are reasonable for the great reviews and place they are located.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
