Blueprint Café

About

Blueprint Café located in London's Design Museum offers spectacular views of the London skyline from Tower Bridge, in the West, sweeping across and along the Thames to Canary Wharf in the East.

As you would expect of a restaurant in a museum devoted to design, aesthetics are important here. The dining room at this riverside restaurant is light, simple and unfussy.

Acclaimed Head Chef Jeremy Lee is at the helm in the kitchen doing what he does best and loved by all: simple, seasonal cooking. Jeremy prefers substance over style and creates modern European dishes with touches of his Scottish homeland.

The menu changes daily and evolves throughout the year from a wealth of fabulous game in the autumn and winter, to an abundance of asparagus in the spring and succulent soft fruits in the summer.

Unfortunately the day I ate here it was a bit dark/rainy so I couldn't make the most of the view, but the food was delicious and even my fussy grandparents liked it! It's a good place to go with people visiting the city, it's really nice and has a view, but the lunch set menu is great value and the atmosphere isn't too stuffy.

Would definitely come back!more

A friend recommended Blueprint Café as a casual restaurant with a nice view. The view didn't disappoint; we were seated at a window table and really enjoyed watching sunset over the River Thames and the Tower Bridge. It was also nice to relax a bit and not worry about dress codes.

Since we were here mostly for the view and ambiance, we were pleasantly surprised by the food, which was executed...more

Popped into Blueprint to celebrate a friend's birthday. First off, it is a very pleasant environment indeed with gorgeous open views over the Thames.

The service was a little unpolished from some staff. For example, when we arrived, the barmen had to greet us and it seemed pretty obvious that it wasn't his job.

To be to fair to them, they did let us switch tables to be next to the window,...more

People don't dine at Blueprint cafe for the stellar food, they go for a gorgeous view of the Tower Bridge. With glass windows all around, the restaurant provides a great view of the river and the famous bridge from the second floor.

The food was average but, not really that memorable. I had the Market Fish and Raspberry Panna Cotta. The fish was prepared really well, it was delicate and...more

Blueprint Cafe provides amaaaazing chocolate dessert while you look out over the Thames. I think it is best in the summertime when the top half of the windows are down to give you a lovely breeze while you relax and sip wine with friends.

If you book through toptable you can get lunch for two (including a glass of wine) for £16...so it's not too expensive but the food was fantastic. Love love...more
