We have just returned from London and would like to tell other people about Speedy's. We went there for our breakfast 2 out of the three mornings. Everything was fresh and well cooked. The prices are very reasonable also. Well worth finding this little cafe. The staff were very attentive and we would definitely return when in london.

My friend and I visited Speedy's yesterday as we are huge fans of "Sherlock" and wanted to stake out the area that the show is filmed in. There was a short wait, but this was absolutely fine as everyone was very friendly and the staff were extremely welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. Once inside, we were served right away, choosing a traditional English fry-up, and this was brought to us within 5 minutes. This cafe lives up to its name! The food was delicious, more so than I expected it to be, and at around £4, it was a steal. The only thing I would say that it is EXTREMELY small, so if you're not a fan of being very close to the other people around you and being a bit squished, you may want to check it out first before deciding to eat in here. But I have absolutely no complaints - I almost liked being so close to the others around me because most of them appeared to be "Sherlock" fans too. There were even a few cosplayers!

Overall, this is a must-see for any fan of the show. There are cute, little drawings and photos on the walls of the cast & crew of "Sherlock". The staff are absolutely wonderful, the food is delicious and great value for money, and the atmosphere was lively and homely. I really liked it!

Thought we'd have a quick snack as we were in the area, and glad we did. A lovely fried breakfast....good choice and variation and pretty good value too. Expected the prices to be inflated due to the Sherlock link, but pleasantly surprised they weren't....good on you Speedy's!

Came here because this is one of the most well-known sites for filming BBC's Sherlock. The Speedy's breakfast was, however, unexpectedly delicious. After having traditional English breakfast for a week, I was glad that I had Speedy's breakfast during my visit in London.

Visited on a Friday lunchtime and were lucky to get a table in this small cafe. Tables very close together but here that doesn't seem to matter. As far as we could tell the clientele was all from local offices and they do not need to rely on the Sherlock connection. Standard cafe food done well, fresh and tasty. Coffee also very good and the staff, although rushed off their feet, efficient and pleasant. I can remember places like this from many years ago when I worked in London and it was so nice to revisit the experience.
