I work nearby and grab my lunch regularly at Love Walk Cafe for more than a year now. I saw shops coming and going, some excellent, some mediocre. Love Walk Cafe is perhaps the greatest place in the area to get continuously decent food prepared by nice staff.
Over time, Love Walk Cafe became my favourite lunch treat. Great toasted baguettes or ciabattas with any combination of fillings you like, and deliciously fresh orange juice.
They also offer various other dishes, have some places inside and great outside seating when it's sunny, or at least not raining. In case you're organised, you could also place your order by phone and then just collect your food without the need to wait in the shop. Great service to save time if you're busy. Anyway, I usually prefer to wait a little while in the shop and watch the staff preparing my food.
If you work or live in the area and haven't been there yet, it's definitely worth checking Love Walk Cafe out!
Met a friend here for brunch on a Sunday morning - they were pretty busy! They had lots of outdoor seating that was full, but they offered us a table in the little alley next to the cafe. Not the best atmosphere but at least we were outside! Trouble is, nobody really seemed to know we were there. Service took absolutely ages, from start-to-finish... getting menus, ordering drinks, getting drinks, getting food, getting bill.... it's like they didn't even know the alley was there! Don't have chairs in it if you aren't going to serve that area!
But I will say once our stuff actually CAME, it was very good. I got a yummy orange, apple, beet juice - love that they do fresh juice - and the Veggie Works which is basically a vegetarian full English. A fried egg, a big roasted tomato, a huge mushroom (which I didn't eat because yuuuuuck I hate them - thought it would be little mushrooms!), grilled halloumi, baked beans, spinach, a crispy hash brown patty, and some buttered seedy-nutty toast. Everything was tasty and well cooked - loved the halloumi in there, a very nice touch. It was a fun mix of lots of tasty things, and no vegetarian would feel like they were skimping with this as their breakfast!
I'd come back, but I wouldn't sit in the darn alley. It's like the land of the lost back there. Not too pricey for London though. £11 for a big breakfast and a fresh juice ain't bad.
Yum! We stopped in here before a match at Stamford Bridge for a meal. Drawn in by the large traditional breakfast plates and large crowd, we were rewarded for waiting with some delicious breakfast.
I had the Mega Breakfast - ham, pork sausage, beans, one fried egg (delicious eggs), chips, toast, grilled mushrooms... every bite was tasty.
My date had the Veggie Breakfast - veggie sausage, hash brown, toast, one fried egg, toast, grilled tomato. She too was very pleased!
These plates run about 6 pounds each - a pretty good deal all things considered.
Only drawback was some limited indoor seating and the fact that tables of four were all mixed parties - a little strange to eat brunch with total strangers, for me anyway.
I would definitely stop by again if I didn't live an ocean away...
After a trip to the local charity shops, I was so excited by my new books, that I wanted to sit ANYWHERE and flick through them. I ended up here.. a hidden cafe that I have walked past a few times and never popped in, so today I did. And OH MY, I will defo be popping back. Cute little cafe with outside seating with potted plants of tables, great little teapots, cheap home made (admittedly basis) food, friendly and remarkably efficient waitress and generally lovely. Perfect spot to chill and enjoy an afternoon!
I also nosey-ed at the menu and they do fantastic bargain breakfast throughout the day, so might just be popping back for that!
Given when we went there was a sunday morning it was rather busy. We sat down a little side alley and were pretty much forgotten, the table next to us ordered the same meals and got theres and still ours were nowhere to be seen. I asked whether the meals were meant for us by mistake and they assured me that was not the case and that our meals would be with us soon. Another 10 minutes went by and nobody had come outside. The dishcleaner walked past us and we asked him and he said he doesn't know where they are and can't help us - in a rude manner. Then I asked that he advise someone that we wanted to check where our meals were at - 5 minutes later we were served - no apology nothing said... It came to paying and we decided we would just go and sort the bill out inside - easiest thing done yet. Oh and the food by the way was rather overpriced compared to some other similar places in the area. Doubt I will be back here unless it is the only place open.
