“Great local diner”
Reviewed 12 January 2013 via mobile

We used to live near the Bun an we just went back this morning for a nostalgic brunch. Nothing has changed - friendly service, great value and generous no-nonsense diner food. What's not to like.

“Good value local for breakfast”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

Viby quirky local and unpretentious local spot for a good English breakfast, the cure after a big night out.

“Delicious food, varied menu, reasonable prices”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

This is something quite unexpected - genuinely tasty food at genuinely reasonable prices in the heart of Chelsea.

I have been here a few times over the years, mainly with friends, for breakfast, snacks and coffees. The diner is little more than a minute's walk from the King's Road.

The decor is basic but clean and bright. The diner has upstairs and downstairs seating areas and the staff are happy to cater for larger groups. The menu is varied and I can guarantee if you have breakfast here you will not be disappointed. The staff are usually welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Well worth a visit next time you're in London.

“It is what it is!”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

This is a typical "diner" - great breakfasts, omelets, pasta, salads, specials - cheap for the area. Fast efficient and friendly service. Freshly squeezed orange juice in addition to other drinks which is a luxury in this part of London. It is not "posh" or "transport cafe" - somewhere in the middle. No problem in going there alone, as lots of people do. Can just have a cup of tea or coffee if you want - don't have to eat. Very popular for Sunday brunch. All in all it's a really nice place.

“Great value, quick service and friendly staff”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

The ultimate greasy spoon - does great breakfasts to cure any hangover, but also good lunches with a great variety of salads and other healthier options. Even the fussiest of eaters can find something to eat on this menu and everything is very good value for money.
