It’s not easy finding Turkish breakfasts in London, but Red Art opens early and offers several versions of menemen, a hearty dish of scrambled eggs, tomatoes and green peppers, similar to the North African shakshouka. The sucuk (sausages) version comes in a large silver pan with a basket of bread – it’s a fantastic breakfast and good value at around £4.50. Balık ekmek, a grilled mackerel sandwich, is even harder to find in London, and we think this may be the only version. It might not be as fresh as the just-caught version sold along the banks of the Bosphorus, and it could do with some chilli and lemon, but it’s good enough to sate our cravings. Everything else we’ve tried on the menu has been unspectacular yet generously portioned and ludicrously cheap; the £6 meze sampler works as a light meal for two people. Staff can be a bit grumpy, but the mood lighting creates a pleasant atmosphere and the pavement seating is excellent for people-watching.

I m going to share very important thing, which I am sure it will affect to your decision whether go or not to this cafe, Owner is very lonely person who is sitting 24/7 there, you can never see happy, only thing he wants is come people eat fast and stand up and go, especially in afternoon. he does not know what is customer service and has zero managerial skills. In this cafe Families with kids they are never welcome, because owner does not want such a families. if u go there and ask especially on the weekends baby-chair is always broken, because they do not want welcome such a customers. maybe you can decide what it is baby racism Red Art Cafe? Everybody has kids, or you will have kids in the future, and can you imagine when you go to eat , spend time in Cafe but you are ignored because you have kid and Owner does not want take families with kids? I do not think this is best place to go
