Simply brilliant fry up with everything (and more) you would expect. Coffee is surprisingly good and the mostly deep fried breakfast was perfect. Good veggie choices too and super cheap.

Went here for lunch and ordered the Fish, Chips and Peas. Totally recommend Bankside Cafe if you are on a budget and want to spend real money at dinner. Lunch here is very affordable and the food is very good.

Go here pretty much every Friday morning and any other mornings I can 😀. The choices of breakfast combinations are endless and they do a great breakfast bap. Definitely worth a visit if you work in and around Southwark

Don't go here unless you are hungry, the combinations of breakfasts are bewildering, I recommend Number 2 with Liver (really it's lovely) and they have good coffee! Not going to break the bank and great for a hangover busting feed or fortification before a walk...More

thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
