“Keep this place alive!”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

I feel like I shouldn't review this little cafe. I don't want people knowing about it and it getting too popular.

You will find a classic piece of England, of London, here. Old men chatting, there's a licensed bar on one corner of the entrance, and builder's tea or coffee on the other side. Choice of food at astonishing prices. No frills, nothing fancy, in fact the ladies running are so matter of fact, they could be thought of as rude. They aren't rude, they're just normal without the over-the-top customer service rubbish. You're any old person to them, and that's a good thing. No prejudice here.

To think you can have such a simple and easy sandwich or meal here so cheap in this area is mind-blowing. I gave my friend a poke in the ribs for keeping this place secret so long.

Dear tourists, if you visit here please do not abuse it.
