    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!

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

    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.

    The coffee and location are superb. The fresh bread looks tempting, and so do the meals. More after the 2nd visit. Bike parking available in good public view.

    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!

    One of my favourite places for coffee, brunch, lunch or even a snack! Always great food & great service. Menu changes quite often but recommend the breakfast focaccia and any of the cakes for afters!

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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 :-)

    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.

    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

    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,
