Fantastic little find in the Camden area. Rocked up just as brunch was ending but the lovely ladies and kitchen staff made my friend and I eggs...eggs Benedict to be precise. Well cooked and yummy. The coffee was great and with the food the bill was a very reasonably priced - £21 for two. The seating area downstairs is a... More

Pleasant atmosphere, variety of customers (designers, students, couples, families); quick service, tasty Poached Benedict eggs and Royal eggs, nice music. I would go back to eat my breakfast there again.

I discoverd this tiny restaurant/cafeteria by chance, wandering around Camden Town. Since then, i am a regular there, mostly for a late breakfast/brunch. Food is delicious, freshly made on the same day, with natural fruit juices that you can find only here. Don't miss the egg florentine, and ask for extra portion of mushrooms: the best I have tasted in... More

The staff , guy that served was really friendly and enthusiastic and I noticed engaged with customers. The women with long blonde hairy in a ponytail was polar opposite off hand rude and miserable, no eye contact and I notice practically dumped coffee on tables with no exchange....what's her problem she lets the business down, awful! Another waitress cleared my... More

Before we went to the market we went here and ate our breakfast. The porridge and chia pudding where a bit dissapointing, but the sandwiches are really good in this place. We had one with whole wheat bread, egg and avocado and it tasted really good.

We walked from Camden Market to seek out this place as we love our coffee and read the reviews. We would certainly visit again, though it wasn't perfect coffee it was pretty good. We found the staff pleasant and helpful, though the food was slightly on the expensive side. The seating downstairs was packed out mostly with laptops. We didn't... More

Came here Sunday morning and sat outside enjoying the December sun. Service was excellent as was the coffee. The pain au chocolate and croissant were OK if a little 'solid', no flaky pastry as you get in a good French bakery. The other food looked good so perhaps will try something different next time. It wasgreat to sit outside and... More

Leyas is a nice little spot hidden away in busy Camden, we caught brunch (just) it's stops at 12pm on weekdays. It was tasty and nicely presented, however the poached eggs were not soft. The seating downstairs is comfortable and on a weekday never too busy. The staff are really friendly and even though the coffee machine was being repaired... More

Staying in Camden

Neighbourhood Profile
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
