This cafe has the best granola ever. Staff are friendly and know their food, coffee is great too. All round a top place to meet, greet and eat.

I love eggs from my head down to my legs. These eggs made my head happy and my legs quiver.

Small independent business keeping it real. Friendly staff, great coffee.

Simply the best coffee, impressive food, unpretentious staff, friendly vibe, fast internet, crack-level addictive banana bread

Quality food with first class ingredients. Classic & original dishes lovingly put together with a pride lost in so many eateries who've grown to big for their boots.

If you're in the market for a damn fine coffee, get down to the embassy asap.. these guys know their stuff! Well worth a trip out of your way and not just for the coffee - the meat sandwich is the best I've had. Joey Tribbiani would be proud of that creation! Fantastic staff to boot - I'll be back soon guys


This place has been on my to-do list for ages, and I could not have been more disappointed when we visited a couple of weeks ago. We managed to get a table straight away, but had to wait 30 minutes just for our coffee, and about an hour for food which then came separately so one of us had already finished when the other was served. Staff were completely oblivious and unapologetic. The food itself was tasty, but gave us chronic stomach pains for the rest of the day. Based on the great reviews below I'm assuming we may have been unlucky.

I'm a little bit sad that this place is getting all the publicity (that it undoubtedly deserves) as I have enjoyed not yet having to queue for a table. Hands down best brunch in London, the menu is diverse and is often tweaked. Meat sandwich.

Just the best place in town for brunch. Best food and coffee for miles.

Great service and amazing, unique food selection. A must for all visitors and residents in London! 5 Stars.

Their haggis cheese toasty is amazing. Probably one of the best hangover cures I've ever had. Great coffee. Nice guys. Great cakes. It's all good. So good. Go there and stuff your face asap!

Though an unassuming little cafe off the beaten track, you will not find a better brunch anywhere. The Sardines on toast particularly are superb.

Best brunch in London... eggs of all varieties, Eastern Eggs being the best. Also famous for the most delicious, cheesy and generous gourmet toasted sandwiches. Great vibe and excellent coffee as well. Worth travelling a long way for.

Best toasted sandwiches in town... coffee and banter from the lovely staff is exceptional as well

Awesome little cafe with laid back ambience, mouth watering dishes, killer baked goods, the best coffee you could ask for, and all under one roof. Favourite spot in town, hands down.

You can stop deciding. Just come here. Unless you are going to come and break up with your girlfriend or something and not come back again because it will bring up bad memories. Because you will want to come back.

The coffee is great, these guys know their stuff and the food is worth a trip across London for.

Best Coffee in London made by kiwi trained pro's who have a wealth of knowledge on coffee and roasting. Amazing toasties with yummy pickle on the side. All round good food and service

Good local standard of coffee with awesome guest espresso. Killer sandwiches and good honest, forget your waistline, tasty food. And always friendly staff with a good chat in tow.

This is the best coffee shop/cafe in London. The food is consistently amazing and the staff will make you laugh.

Amazing cafe! Best in town! Best cheese on toast my mouth is watering now! See you soon embassy east!!
