Trade was my office's official pancake supplier. The lady I spoke to on the phone was so, so sweet and extremely helpful. There was a real family feel and the pancakes were wonderful!


Working close by I try to visit Trade once a week for lunch. The menu during the week slightly alters to the one they have at weekends, by which I mean they sadly do not have their excellent quiche selection on display at weekends. 

If you are nearby and it's a sunny day, go and check their cute garden at the back of the restaurant and don't forget to try anything they have on display at the counter. Give the millionaire shortbread a try also while there. Five stars from me. 


Amazing food (+ their cakes are to die for) but the service is so bad that it put me off going there (went twice, same experience both times). Had to wait over 45 min to get a table and then wait another 45 min to get our food served. Waited another 10 minutes for the waitress to get us salt and she apologized when she couldn't even provide us a glass of water because they were running out of glasses. Food came cold both times and despite being amazing, it ruined the experience for me.


It had been for long time on my To Do List. The first time I tried Trade though, I realized that I shouldn't had waited that long. Trade is one of my favorite places for brunch in London. The menu is excellent, offering a variety of egg dishes and ridiculously delicious sandwiches. The cuban club is the best sandwich I 've had in my life! Really! Very friendly and welcoming staff. Good prices especially when compared to the quality of food served.

I try to eat a light anytime I know I'm going to Trade, as I love their Reuben - it is just massive and exquisite! Super friendly staff and they smoke all the meats on site. It's usually rammed - head towards then end of lunch time if you don't want to queue out the door, particularly at weekends. Nice coffee too. 

I've been to Trade a couple of times for a quick mid week coffee and breakfast and have loved it every time! They are one of the few places that do vegemite on toast which I love, and their coffee is delicious. The scrambled eggs with chorizo is my favourite breakfast menu item if I have time to sit down. The seating area is cute and they have a nice garden for when the weather is warm. During the week you'll need to book if you have a big group as it does get very busy! 

Can't wait to go back again and try another item of the menu!


Trade is an amazing place with a simple but nice decor and a few minimalised movie posters on the walls. The service is very friendly and enthusiastic, the coffee is great and the food is simply delicious!

There are no words to describe the deliciousness of the chicken and bacon club sandwich with avocado, onion jam, secret sauce and brioche bun. Hint: the chicken is fried. The grilled cheese sandwiches are also yummy. The brunch menu is great with my favourite being the pastrami benedict. Once you see the menu it is pretty obvious they love pastrami.

The weekends are busy so be prepared to queue. It is perfect for a weekend visit for brunch, you can combine it with a visit to brick lane or Spitalfields market but it is also popular for breakfast and lunch on weekdays. Last but not least, it is very reasonably priced!!! I have been several times and I would definitely go back again and again! There's outdoor seating for the warmer days but I haven't had the chance to try that out yet!
