This cafe has such a great and varied menu with so much choice. Food quality is great with big portions and fast service. Cheese omelette and the big fry up were delicious and worth every penny.

Good to see an old style traditional London cafe still going strong at Waterloo. Lovely little seating area outside. Lunchtime light and fluffy omelette and chips with a mug of tea was just great.

as a regular customer I would never write bad about this place. Since the pandemic and the help from the government for us all to eat out and get our 50% discount to help build the economy back to normal. You get places like here...scamming the customer. If you don't ask for the discount you won't get it. This is breaking the law and is scamming not only customer but the whole of UK who are suffering. This is terrible and i will never go back here again. I will also be reporting this to the local council. Called them back for the worker to say sorry but I'm just a worker. What a jokeMore

We popped in here on our way to the Imperial War Museum just for a coffee, we ended up having one of their fantastic breakfasts. How they manage everything from such a small place, is a work of art. Couldn't fault anything, and by looking...at all the other empty plates, nor could anybody else. We will certainly visit again when in the area. Oh, and it didnt cost an arm and leg either. Nice.More

This has been my favourite ‘greasy spoon’ for years but since the introduction of a 40p charge for a glass of tap water ... words fail me.

Perfect place to visit in London after a weekend in the English countryside. Come for a hearty, authentic dining experience in London.

A regular. Nothing flash. Nothing fancy. Just a really good cafe that does basic, tasty food well. Impeccably clean. Prompt and efficient service.
