we have been going to the River Cfe since it opened and it remains my favourite restaurant anywhere. It is that good. The service, ambiance and most of all the food remain at the very highest of standards, but it always feels relaxed and comfortable....More

I like this place very much! Have had breakfast several times and enjoy the family atmosphere. Feels like you are in Italy. The food is fresh and honest. Reasonably priced and good service. Simple, don't expect anything fancy. Lot's of regulars returning here.

They remember who you are and your usual. They are cheery and always make conversation. The food will wow no one but its great for a hungover Friday breakfast.

The cafe I reviewed is directly outside the tube station and is called River Cafe. It is not expensive and I did not say it was.
