Nice cosy place, good location, quick service, kind staff but panini and scones were average. Tea/ coffee was ok too.

Smells like cheese, looks like cheese. You'd think it might taste of cheese! Three people eating, two finished and the third still to receive food, followed by overcharge of 50p. Staff not the friendliest.

We stopped here for a cheap lunch after walking round Greenwich and through the market. Cheap food and a nice friendly service. It is a small cafe and we sat inside but it was nice to go somewhere different. Baguette's were delicious.

On a very sunny very hot afternoon I sat at one of the outside tables of this tiny cafe and enjoyed a lemon sorbet while people watching in this very busy part of Greenwich

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World
Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
