This was a stop on the Eating Europe London East End tour. The salt beef was the highlight. The bagel is really moist and soft, but not the best bagel I've had, but it went well with the salt beef. The tour is perfect because...More

Smoked salmon and cream cheese heaven. Delightfully local sassy service, open 24/7, located for the clued up drinks that don't want clogged arteries and love a bargain.

We really like the salted beef bagel and returned for more. Stuffed full of warm corned beef, add mustard and pickle to make it super delicious. Hard to get your mouth around. It’s a meal at €4.30 but a plain Biegel at 30p is very...More

I've seen a review which says they don't do Gluten Free. I know they take cash only. Kosher? Is the pope Catholic?
