As title says, great coffee & best price for quite a distance around here. A real hidden gem with extremely friendly & efficient service. Great looking food, unfortunately didn't have time to try it.

“Exceptional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

I have been dining at the Chelsea Bun regularly for many years. The quality, flavour and freshness of their food is consistently of a very high standard. Prices are great, portions are generous. The menu is extensive and flexible, ranging from light snacks to full meals, with great options for vegetarians and vegans. You can, for example customise your breakfast to a high degree, nothing is too much trouble for the courteous and friendly staff. Even when the diner is busy the service is prompt. Families and children are always welcome, and there is an outside seating area for those with pets, or smokers. Large parties are catered for. The atmosphere of bonhomie and cheeriness is always delightful, due to the happy staff and the noble, generous, wise and caring personality of Ersin, the owner and manager. I have dined from Paris to New York to San Fran and Melbourne and Berlin and lots of places in between. I put the Chelsea Bun at the top of my list .

“Unexpected treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013 via mobile

We needed something simple for lunch and seemed to have a choice of the extravagant Chelsea trendy spot or this greasy spoon... But Chelsea Bun was good quality and great value. I had a hot chicken, bacon and cheese sandwich which was lovely. My wife and daughter the tuna sandwich. My 10 year old boy polished off his bowl of spaghetti Bol. Definitely recommend.
