“Handy… especially when other places are shut!” – these “round-the-clock” diners have grown from their SW10 base (which has been around for yonks) to bring their late-night formula of “decent food, a good vibe, friendly service and dependable value” to ever-more ’hoods: recent additions include sites in Euston and Clapham. Only Chelsea, Bloomsbury and Aldgate are actually 24/7.
“Open 24/7” – the stalwart SW10 original “has been there forever, and is still the same old reliable standby at all hours”: “it’s a simple menu, but what they do, they do well”. In recent years it’s spawned a number of spin offs – WC1 in particular “has a large turnover and is reasonably priced”.
“Very handy for early hours refuelling” – particularly the venerable SW10 original of these late night diners, which has provided “great all-day breakfasts” (and all night ones) and “service with a smile” since the ’80s.
“Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs”… “great veggie fry-ups” – that’s the kind of all-day breakfast food that’s “always reliable” at these 24/7 diners. The ancient SW10 branch is the best known, while the new Notting Hill branch isn’t actually open the whole 24 hours (but is still handy if you fancy a full English in W11 at 2am).
