    Great interior design, it's in a very narrow building on three levels and everything in it seems to be made to fit perfectly. Friendly staff, welcoming and cozy feeling. Good music.

    The big breakfast lives on. Not the bargain it once (now £9.90) was but the place is reinvented as a much smarter venue. Open 24 hours - so great to have on the personal radar

    I had the rib eye, their portion is huge, full of fries. (not the meat, though, too thin to go medium rare). The main point is it's 24hrs and in centre of London. Good vibes.

    English breakfast or beacon and cheese sándwich is mandatory. The have good coffee too and prices are normal. The bar is tinny so to be seat you need to go early

    Nice place, the food was really good. The fact that is open 24 hours makes it even better, you always know where to go for a nice quick meal.

    Quite good coffee and one of the best Natas I've tried outside of Portugal. Not a posh place but nice and cozy.

    They do Oreo shakes with optional JD shot. Not sure if they serve this early on a Sunday though. Chefs very friendly too

    It's 5AM, your friends want one more drink, you're starving, and none of you are in a state to go to Duck & Waffle. Welcome to your saviour.

    Their pastries taste and feel like 90% sugar. They'll tell you 'sugar-free'.

    Friendliest caf in the City who remember what you like and can make it for you at 3am. What could be better than a Polo No 1?

    Nothing else open in the area so we found here and were pleased. Service not the best, but food was ok. Veggie burger a bit mushy though. Flatbreads are really a wrap for any Americans :)

    The waitress was quite rude to us as Asians as if we are not spending. Purposely increased the music as if we were sleeping. When there are customers come, the music volume was turned down again.
