So happy we found this place! Went there on Wednesday afternoon and had a wonderful little lunch and couple of glasses of wine. The atmosphere, the food and the drinks made me travel right back to Italy! It's honest, effortless and very reasonably priced. The team is kind and made us feel like they welcomed us right in their own... More

I just had a nostalgic weekend trip back to London, my hometown for over 35 years. When I lived there, Sunday mornings at Columbia Flower Market always included a bagel and coffee at Jones Dairy, or even better a couple of oysters and their mackerel pate on toast. Five years on, it's now a restaurant, with very authentic-looking seasonal Italian... More

After walking in the big crowds of the flower shop road this a good break. Nice food and well situated. A bit tough to find a place straight away but if you wait a bit you will find a sit. The food is quiet good and if you are lucky you might find that they still serve everything on the... More

I was at first impressed as had a coffee outside in the sun without realising you had to pay by cash and they told me to forget it. When I went back later to pay for my coffee I decided to have a bowl of soup..Didn't look at menu and just asked for any soup of the day. A shallow... More

we should have known better! We arrived in front of this typical cafe at around 11 am with the intention of having brunch just to discover they had run out of EVERYTHING (at 11 am!). We had a couple of toast with butter and jam and since it was really busy, we had to remind the poor waitress of our... More

The food here was incredible!! all organic, all freshly prepared and well worth the wait. It has a wonderful "back to school" atmosphere which reminds me of my nan's kitchen and I can honestly say I have never eaten food out with so much flavour. I had poached egg and smoked haddock on rye bread with rocket and fresh lemon.... More

The service was absolutely awful, I was shouted at to fetch my drink. Not allowed a knife, plate or tray even though I couldn't carry my order to a table. Staff were rude and disdainful. The food is nothing special and stale. Don't ask to use the toilet, they let my partner wash his hands and told me 2 seconds... More

This little tiny cafe (and there is an indoor part for those wanting to eat at a table as opposed to being served from the hatch) is incredibly sweet. It's a unique find and worth a stop for the place alone. I've eaten here twice - once on my own and once with friends. The good isn't memorable but it... More
