Fantastic. Swift service. Bacon butty and coffee is all you need to start the day. Massive list of options if you are keen. Beer also if you need it!

A 24 hour restaurant that serves nice food whether it is the morning or late at night. The burgers and Eggs Benedict are excellent and the fresh orange is also recommended. Next to Liverpool Station so a central location that is always available should you require it.

Long standing 24 hour greasy spoon café. Food is always good, however I have only ever had English Breakfast here. The coffee is excellent and the service is mostly good. Right by the station and easy to get too.

We had spent quite a few days exploring London. We were rather bored of the chain restaurants and then I happen to notice the board outside the Polo bar. Steak and ale pie, cottage pie, real food at last! The steak pie was our choice, good large portion, really tasty and made on the premises. What more could you ask... More

Great cafe that must have the longest opening hours anywhere - it never seems to shut. Great for anything from a quick tea/coffee to a full english breakfast at anytime of day or night

I'm sure they serve other stuff but I've only ever had breakfast there, regardless of the time of day/night. It's open 24x7 and next to Liverpool St, so it's a good standby if you're hungry and just want to grab something. It's hot and they use decent bread for the bacon/sausage sandwiches. What's not to like.

On a very cold day it was nice to be able to "tuck in" to nice food, with extremely quick service to match

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 glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
