There are far better caffs than this, but if it's a cheap cuppa and a bacon butty you're after, then it fits the bill in a no-frills kind of way.

Having gone there in November and been really impressed I arranged a get together with my colleagues for breakfast just before Christmas. Unfortunately when we arrived we were told that there was no chef but we could have pre-prepared sausage/bacon/egg baps. They were not heated properly and barely edible, the service was incredibly slow and the coffee was barely luke... More

I paid £5.20 for a weak Americano and a bacon sandwich with day-old reheated over bacon. I only realised the awful quality when I got back to the office. I have had their ciabatta sandwiches here a couple of times over the years (I work close by) and although they are average and expensive, they couldn't reach really poor levels... More

Typical sports bar, young profile and good for large groups meeting but many other more atmospheric bars around depending on what you are looking for. Rating of poor for me, but know if you want to watch a match that's probably higher for some

Very nice little bar. Very simple. Good location. Good prices. Nice breakfast with eggs, bacon, beans and all you need for a good start in your day! And just in the TEMPLE subway station. Just try it!

Leaving uni I forgot to get a coffee from the kings coffee kiosks and had the vicissitude to enter this establishment.

It would be easy to pass by, but it would be wrong to do so. The "English" breakfast, in spite of the usual American add-ons of baked beans and faux hash browns, is good, and eating it would obviate the need for lunch! Fluffy scrambled eggs are available. The lunch menu is quite heavily Italian-orientated, but is none the worse... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
