If you want to find a real gem of a cafe, to have a break from wandering around the undercover Greenwich markets, then you can't do any better than stopping in at the Monsoon Cafe. Tucked away in a small alley, it adjoins the Red Door Cafe. Never having ventured into the Red Door myself, I can't really make further... More

How great it was to go to a coffee shop and ask the question about gluten free and to have a choice of two!, we chose the Carrot cake, brilliant!, coffee, two small cappuccinos, very tasty. Sorry I knocked the sugar bowl on the floor!

Smells like cheese, looks like cheese. You'd think it might taste of cheese! Three people eating, two finished and the third still to receive food, followed by overcharge of 50p. Staff not the friendliest.

A few minutes' walk from Cutty Sark light rail station, this hole in the wall cafe serves coffee or tea and a slice of cake for £3.75 or cream tea for £3.50. Honestly, I don't know how you can pay London rent at those prices. (Contrast these prices with prices at the cafe at the Cutty Sark Museum. Just one... More

We stopped here for a cheap lunch after walking round Greenwich and through the market. Cheap food and a nice friendly service. It is a small cafe and we sat inside but it was nice to go somewhere different. Baguette's were delicious.

On a very sunny very hot afternoon I sat at one of the outside tables of this tiny cafe and enjoyed a lemon sorbet while people watching in this very busy part of Greenwich

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
