  • The Hunter breakfast is amazing! Swapped baked beans for sauted spinach:) coffee is good too but not as good as the food
  • Hreat coffee and good choice of breakfast foods as well as salads. Grab a taable outside when the weather is nice, lovely spot for lazy weekend mornings!
  • A must in London. Salt beef hash for breakfast, simply the best!
  • Fave new coffee place, great flat white
  • Great place, great food and friendly service... And really cool ambience in the 'library' room. We had bacon sandwich and poached eggs with salmon (eggs as u like it)... Delish!
  • Excellent addition to the London coffee scene, and much needed in Covent Garden. Sit out back for some natural light and try the Bircher - best in London
  • Service can be very hit and miss. Don't be afraid of chasing up missing requests!
  • Cheap food & wifi but you won't want to use it..the place is too charming to be stuck with your head in a phone. One if my best coffee & food experiences in London yet :)
  • Busy breakfast spot but was shown to a table straight away. Loved the grilled halloumi!
  • Coffee goes without saying but I recommend the food and space in the back especially.
  • The bacon and egg was really nice!
  • The Gatherer was amazing!
  • The salted beef hash was an amazing brunch dish!
  • Coffee is good, but the playlist is not great
  • Crispy duck hash was good!
  • Very goood scramble - light fluffy and creamy
  • Sourdough toast with fried eggs...available all day! And delicious coffee with a great view.
  • Excellent coffee highly recommended
  • Halloumi & eggs
  • Solid breakfast. Lovely place.
