    Breakfast/Brunch options here are all good. Fresh, tasty and high quality ingredients. I went for the Veggie Breakfast on this occasion, and it was banging, although the normal one is knock-out too!

    Good chestnut and onion soup, although would have liked more onions, kippers with potato cakes were nice but I wish they served two eggs instead of one. Great place for brunch on a sunny day

    Great view and nice breakfast, perfect for summer brunches. Watch ducks and eat fresh cakes. Amazing granola. Really good daily brewed coffee. One of the fav places in east.

    Quaint little café situated on the lake with a great range of vegetarian fare. The chanterelles on sour dough with egg and thyme are a great alternative to the Full English, and they do proper beans!

    I always crave the Sri Lankan breakfasts from Pavilion. String hoppers, coconut sambol, roti, egg hoppers, and dhal... Got me totally hooked.

    They sell great cakes.. the banana, chocolate and walnut is lovely! The queue can get long but I've always been able to bring my little dog in whilst I buy a nice cup of tea and cake :-)

    Very good (and surprisingly extensive) menu with local products and produce. Friendly staff and Great Lake views.

    Veggie breakfast is tasty. Great bread and good haloumi and avocado. The Sri-Lankan breakfast was also pretty good.

    Tasty food made from quality ingredients, and for a reasonable price. Outdoor seating overlooking the lake, with pigeons that are only too happy to share. Good for brunch.

    This is without a doubt the best cafe in London. Craft coffee, excellent breakfast, and superlative water views. A trifecta that's unmatched within the M25.

    Nice breakfast! I really liked the eggs Benedict! I wasn't impressed with the £2.50 portion of halloumi which was two very thin slices.

    One of the best locations in London. Sipping good coffee by the lake in the sun is perfect. The home made baked beans are really good also.

    Lovely food in London's best Park. Get a seat next to the lake and go for a Sri Lankan breakfast.

    Although most people will come here for the view in the summer, the coffee and pastries are also surprisingly good.

    A perfect spot for breakfast or brunch. The menu is great, but they're happy to mix and match anything you like. Don't miss the chai.

    Lovely place to watch hipsters, babies and dogs but also has great coffee and local milk! Also right inside a lovely park to finish or start a walk with someone dear!

    Worth travelling across London for a Sunday morning breakfast, grab a paper on the way, sit outside, have your scrambles eggs on toast, watch the ducks. Enjoy.

    It's located on the pond in Victoria park and absolutely, such a number one place to have a breakfast on any given weather day.

    Great place for breakfast brunch. Recommend the eggs Benedict. It's always heaving when I've been though and the wait for a table can be a pain

    Still my favourite breakfast spot in East London. Better in the summer though since it gets quite chilly outside.

    Good coffee served by the standard too attitude baristas . Good tasty but nothing to rave about ( had the vege breakfast ) the real star is the location and people watching

    TAKE FRIENDS! The locals are territorial, unfriendly and generally miserable, don't bother joining tables sit by yourself and enjoy the view on the high hairs overlooking the lake,

    Vegetarian breakfast was very good, but they could do with upgrading the cutlery to cope with the toasted sourdough without bending.

    A fine place for breakfast by the lake. Arrive early to guarantee a slice of the day's fresh cakes.
