Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Please note, Rooftop Cafe is now closed. Time Out Food & Drink Editors, December 2016.
Admittedly, just getting here is half the fun – there’s a sense of achievement once you’ve successfully navigated entry-phone, lift and winding stairs and corridors. But what you find at the end of the journey is also pretty special. The café of a co-working enterprise that happens to be open to the public, the Rooftop has exceptional views over the City, along with a neck-cricking, vertiginous proximity to the Shard next door.
In summer, the enormous deck terrace planted with herbs and vegetables is a wonderful treat, while the small inner café with its wooden floor and colourful furniture is a pretty eyrie on cooler days. We relished the breakfast – excellent, generous bread and scrambled eggs with thick-cut smoked salmon or luscious bacon, flanked by sparky bloody marys – but the kitchen also runs to lunch and tea during the week, and dinner Wednesday to Saturday, when a cut-above menu features the likes of ‘rabbit, prosciutto, mango, almond, watercress’ or ‘flourless chocolate cake, blackberries’; a winter’s day was brightened by crunchy potato cake topped with a portobello mushroom and poached duck egg.
Wines are well chosen and sensibly priced; the bread is also excellent.
