Every time we travel to London, we try to eat at Armadillos. The ambiance is great, warm and welcoming. The greatest and most funny part of eating here is watching people passing to the gates, travelers hurrying and you are just quietly eating nachos! Oh...More

Truly excellent breakfast served by Armadillo. I had the longhorn breakfast with toast. My wife had the breakfast burrito. Both were superb. My wife actually used the phrase “That is the best breakfast I have ever had”. Well recommended.

I don't think they take bookings, and I believe the largest tables only seat 4 (booth style), so probably not for you.
