Why haven't we know about this before? Loved it in the sun!

Very good food and service. Waitstaff that smile as well as the chef serving tables. A hands-on establishment that can go far.

We'll be back soon...

I was staying at the nearby Swiss Cottage Best Western hotel, where the breakfast was £11 and got bad reviews. Came here instead and had a good coffee and excellent cooked breakfast for a few pounds less. Super. And incredibly convenient for Finchley Road station to zip into town after.

I love this place. Great, quiet atmosphere, perfect for whiling away the time on a lazy Sunday noon, sitting and reading a book - accompanied by a full English breakfast to die for. Would come here again and again, either with friends or even solo.

Situated steps from Finchley rd tube station, this cafe with a stunning walled garden is a real find. The service was friendly though very busy today on a bank holiday but the food came astoundingly fast... A bit too fast in the case of the eggs Benedict which had to go back as a bit too runny. The dish was replaced super fast and with no fuss whatsoever. My salad was delicious and fresh and the fish Cake was beautifully prepared and tasty though heavy on the potato and maybe over generous portion size. Smaller size but better quality dish might be a better bet but overall great impression and lovely coffee. I will go back on other lovely sunny days.

We have tried this cafe twice when we visited family.

The first time was for afternoon Coffee & Cake, when i requested if the had "GLUTEN FREE CAKE" i was given the cake list, as i felt they never heard me correctly i asked again with a stern NO.

The following day we attended and it was busy, there was 6 people and we asked for a table of 6, the same waitress from the day before looked around and just went NO. We went outside and discussed that we could get two tables and sit away from each other as there was 2 tables for 4, so we went back in and a new waitress was so helpful she even asked a table to move seats so we could all get together, (Very Relaxed and Friendly)

So we ordered and asked if we could have the Jacket with Tuna and just make the kitchen know about the GLUTEN intolerance.....All we got back was "WE DONT OFFER THAT", "WE CANT GIVE YOU THAT". The same girl in all three poor service has let the cafe down. We eat out all the time and not one place has ever been so rude towards something so simple to avoid. Will i go back, plenty more places locally that offer a good breakfast and also gluten free.

The second girl has saved it from being a terrible rating.
