This was a really pleasant find. Next to the church and not easy to find unless you're looking, but we had a really nice cold breakfast and cups of tea, plus it wasn't too pricey for London. Would definitely go back.

Stopped here for a late lunch but wish we hadn't. The sign outside promised cocktails and all day food but when we asked for a cocktail the reply was 'I don't think so, it's busy', when looking around there were only about 5 tables occupied....More

This is a nice quiet spot to have breakfast before sightseeing around London. We had the English Breakfast and the Full English and were pleased with the quality of the food. The black pudding wasn't that great but that may just be the black pudding....More

The setting in the church yard is really quite pretty and unusual. We called for breakfast. The service was good and quick, but the cooked breakfast was average. Handy if you are heading to the Tower of London. Note on Google Maps, the place has...More

As others have stated this is a hidden gem - it is all day breakfast food. Very good and reasonably priced. Don't miss it!

I found this place on yelp, when Coppa Club was full (because we didn't think to book for Sunday brunch by the Thames and the Tower of London - doh!). It's actually inside All Hallows’ church yard. The coffee is great (dark roast, not bitter/fruity)...More

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
