On my last trip to London I was looking for a good place to get some work done and get some good food at the same time. This place was perfect for that.

They serve great breakfast with various selections of eggs, veggies and pastries and there's plenty of table space and free wifi.

The tables upstairs even have accessible plugs for charging your laptop. The atmosphere was laid back and quiet...more

Mid room- lounge- drinks, get some nice house music going on in the evening.

Back room- club atmosphere with lounge space in the back. Decent sound system (not spectacular) but you get a...more
