Breakfast near the London Eye

We will be staying later this year near the Thames and London Eye. Looking for information on "inexpensive" breakfast opportunities in this area. Not just a bagel or bacon sandwich, but english breakfast. Any recommendaitons on greasy spoons near Westminster bridge or Waterloo Station? Thanks.

There is a pub between the Horse guards (same side of the street) and Trafalgar square that has a inexpensive English Breakfast which is served until noon. There are restaurants, around waterloo station, of all varities and prices.

Well, We usually stay at the Premier Travel Inn at County Hall. Having to do laundry one day, my daughter and I asked the concierge where the nearest laundromat was. We were directed behind Waterloo stn. It was a bit hard to find at first but it is not a long way away. The laundromat was on the far side of the street and this horrible little cafe was at the end of the street on the left....It was so smokey inside (from the cooker) that we ate outside. Egg, bacon, sausage, chips, tinned tomatoes, mushrooms,fried bread and toast. All for around 4GPB. We went back several more times.

I suspect the street you're thinking off is Lower Marsh. It's tucked behind Waterloo Station but, as you say, actually quite close to the Embankment. There are a couple of 'greasy spoon' type cafes there, the best of them one that sells (very cheap) chinese food in the evenings. It's about half way along on your left as you head towards The Cut.

I always used to stop there for breakfast when catching a train to Paris, and it hasn't changed for ages except, as with everywhere in the UK, it is now non-smoking (thankfully).

The Cut itself has a very good middle eastern restaurant - The Tas (of which there are now several around London)- which is worth an evening visit. Directly opposite is a very good gastropub - the Anchor and Hope. More details here
