Great lunch spot with friendly staff who are always happy to help. The food is tasty and filling and served at a lunch-friendly speed. With a good selection of vegetarian-friendly meals as well as lighter cakes and coffees. Slightly removed from the more tourist consuming Greenwich centre, which makes Baba’s a must visit when you’re in the area.

It’s not that there aren’t undiscovered gems out there, but eateries that can genuinely surprise, delight and, above all, offer a true bargain – especially in gentrified territory like Greenwich village (UK, not NYC) – are virtually unique these days.  You can’t blame them for trying to seek profits in such a risky business, but when they do give value and pleasure such establishments deserve to be nurtured and for the word on the street to become a torrent.

Greenwich’s best-kept secret, sitting aptly on a quirky row of terrific shops a stone’s throw from the main station, might easily be Baba’s Cafe and Bar.  In a previous guise it was a much-loved greasy spoon caff, which is no bad thing in itself.  The present owners – a family, several of whom were present at the time we were there – have given the old place a jazzy makeover, complete with an eclectic mix of photographic prints (Sid James next to Pulp Fiction!) They kept the breakfast menu, expanded it, provided a number of “British” dishes (in the more traditional definition before we adopted chicken tikka masalas and spa bols), included a few Turkish highlights, and finished it off with a range of quality cakes and pastries from a good local bakery.
