Stopped for a coffee and toastie. Nice location with river views. Decent coffee and a good choice of focaccia/sourdough toasties and baguettes. Extra star for having really good classical music playing quietly in the background and also for allowing dogs inside.

Now.. living in Milan.. close to Brera I had high hopes for the coffee of this place. Coffee taste is burned and too harsh. The yoghurt with granola and fruit is good. Shakes are too. Free wifi available and good location. Won't be coming back though due to the bad coffee.

Better seating by the riverside compared to its sister establishment by the square. You can sit outside and enjoy the sun in the summer. However, service is a bit confused and coffee never consistent, as with Brera always. Meh.

Disappointing visit. The ordering didn't start well when they gave me the wrong menu. And my pizza slice was still sort of cold when I got it after more then 10 Minutes (and it wasn't busy). I could asked to heat it up, but didn't want to wait anymore. Tasted quite nice though.

Enjoyed a lovely espresso and pistachio macaron at Cafe Brera, Canary Wharf. Highly recommended. Good staff and a very nice outside seating area.

Dropped in here prior to attending Greenwich and Docklands Festival. The coffee machine had stopped working and the kitchen was closed. Not a great start. However, the tea was nice and it does have a nice ambience. Staff didn't seem the most attentive and could have used some customer service training! We ended up buying a toasted sandwich to takeaway... More

Have had some good and bad experiences here. Things tend to get a little chaotic when new staff come on board. Coffee can be made very strong. On a Sunday, some of the cakes and muffins can be a bit stale. Staff often seem rushed and plates pile high on the counter for cleaning. Music can sometimes be a bit... More

Great cafe at Westferry Circus for a snacky treat by the riverside! Go for the Greko or one of their in-house specials (which will be prepared right in front of you!) and a smoothie! .. (PS: These specials are not available on the weekends.)

I just popped in for a coffee. Everything was fine with the service and the coffee was good. I cannot comment on the food

Had breakfast here 3 times while in London for a long weekend. It's that good. Lovely location, and seats outside overlooking the river, if the weather is fine. A nice selection of Italian hot and cold food, snacks pastries. Great coffee. I would definitely recommend this particular Cafe Brera outlet.
