Beyond the great coffee, it's the excellent breakfast that The Black Penny is most famous for, with an extensive and delicious menu that has something for everyone. Even better yet, the cafe is located directly between Waterloo Station and the London Eye making this the ideal place to have a bite before you set out on a day of sightseeing.

Try the Ozdemir Pasha with grilled halloumi, fried eggs, butterbean hummus and sumac with a zing tomato salad on sourdough toast. Or for a sweet start to the day, there's the Brioche French Toast topped with whipped lemon ricotta, black cardamom sugar, blueberry compote and toasted almonds. They also of course serve a classic English breakfast and for something special the 'Black Penny Hashes' are a signature made with a choice of crispy duck, salt beef or wild mushroom and polenta.

For private events there's a great private dining area on the mezzanine and if the weather is fine there's plenty of space to sit outside on the terrace.
