One of my favourite cafes in London, Terrific range of food, excellent service from friendly staff. I am so glad to see they have re-opened. The best almond croissants ever.

We hadn’t been to Masters until covid hit as we were never around during the day but now it is a weekly staple. Great selection of food and always delicious.

Very good prices for London. We have tuna melt, salad and drink and it was £8.50 to eat in for each. Service was not sharp but friendly. Good place to build up your own sandwich or lunch. Good for take away.
