I work in LSE across the street and regularly visit this place for lunch. It's a nice quiet place to sit, with plenty of tables, the food is good and the prices are extremely reasonable given it's right in the middle of central London. The service is also quite friendly.

Overall I'd recommend this over most of the other places in the area. Certainly it's miles better (and cheaper) than Eat, Pret a Manger, Subway and the rest of the chains on Kingsway.

I am a regular visitor to this cafe, mostly for breakfast. The prices in this central London cafe are inexpensive and with the food being of a high quality this place is rammed packed at lunch times, the students from the LSE regularly use it and add to a great atmosphere. The owner, Benny is great fun and always on hand to offer you the best service possible. I'll be in there for breakfast tomorrow and probably for a take a way spud for lunch. I would sit in but it's always very busy, a sign that this place has got it right.

Friendly quick service, a good choice for breakfast and very decent prices.

This place got my custom because of its proximity to my hotel, but I liked it so much, I went back the next day.

Food ranges from pastries and toast, all the way through to a full English breakfast, all washed down with a fine cuppa.

We stumbled upon this hidden wee gem in a sea of over priced sandwich shops and diner eateries.

We wanted a decent breakfast and were surprised, if not cautious, of the prices charged given what we had paid the previous days.

Quality of the food is very good, plentiful and above all 'real' pricing despite the city centre location.

We had 2 cooked brekkies and tea and coffee for a tenner; being Scottish and having walked 500 miles to find such a wallet friendly place this was music to out hungry ears.
