This is the place for a wonderful breakfast choice from the Chef's special breakfast through eggs benedict and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. Or just have a great tasting coffee and a cake. Nothing is a greasy breakfast its a must always busy.

Visited here a few times now and highly recommend it. Paula the manager was so hospitable as was Sarah the waitress. Friendly team and the most delicious bacon sandwiches! My new favourite spot on the Barbican! Thanks :)
