A beuatiffuly situated, clean and cosy café with lovely river views and friendly and helpful staff. The coffee is excellent, the food is hearty, simple café food - scrambled eggs, pannini, fry-up etc. We had an excellent lunch. We discovered this gem after staggering out...from the ludocrously overpriced and money-grubbing Garden Museum restaurant (four pounds for bread and butter and no, we don't serve coffe when we could be serving expensive lunches).More

Walked for about 5km looking for a breakfast spot. This place is a hidden gem. The service was excellent, food was hot and delicious and it was one of the cleanest places I’ve been into in London.

A fabulous location and little gem of a cafe. Staff are really friendly and the extensive menu is good. Traditional breakfast menu is lovely with meals cooked fresh. Hot chocolate is probably the best I’ve ever had.

We saw this cafe when walking past Lambeth Palace and decided to try it for breakfast. We had scrambled egg on ciabatta and could not fault it. We also had a mug of tea which was also good. Very reasonably priced and it was busy.

Worst meal in 3 weeks ! Since when is "traditional" fish and chips minced fish? 17 quid for 1 piece of fish ? Seriously, pathetic, We paid 1/2 for a fish / chip in Alresford that I could barely finish, ( but I did )...Just keep walking, and SHAME on tripadvisor readers for giving it high marks.More

I doubt it. And unless you sit outside, I don't think 8 can fit inside together. This is a tiny place. Give them a call, though, maybe they can accommodate you. All the best.
