“You don’t come here for the food: the welcome and the banter are the main attraction!”, say fans of the Nevio family’s “buzzy” (but hipster-free) Bethnal Green greasy spoon, which is a top choice for a “simple breakfast”. Architecture anoraks will also want to examine its (listed) Art Deco interior (often used as a location for TV).

“It never changes and that’s the point” of a visit to visiting this well-preserved (hipster-free) greasy spoon in Bethnal Green, whose listed, Art Deco interior (much used in filming TV dramas) is a fine period piece. That “there’s always a special welcome” confirms its position in the hearts of its fans as “one of the best places in London for breakfast” of the traditional variety.

“A piece of London history” – this Bethnal Green caff (the wood-panelled Art Deco interior is listed) has “not yet been captured by hipsters (who probably think the coffee is awful) and attracts a real mix of locals”. Fans say breakfast “is the best in town… and you’ll never feel a stranger here”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
