Square Meal Review of The Rooftop Café ?

Perched on the rooftop of the Exchange Building, this modest eatery not only promises terrific views, but is also handy for working breakfasts, coffee and cake or more substantial suppers (Thurs and Fri only). The short daily menu is driven by sustainability and eclectic flavours – think polenta with fried egg and serrrano ham ahead of pork belly with fennel salad or couscous with flabtbread and yoghurt, plus a chocolate and passion fruit dessert to finish. To drink, there’s a knowledgeable list of terroir-led wines (chosen by expert Alex Whyte from Brawn), which can be enjoyed in a striking contemporary setting of hand-made furniture and clean-lined surfaces. A separate decked area and kooky greenhouse (open until September) is perfect for sipping reasonably priced ‘garden cocktails’ (served in mini watering cans), alongside groovy bar snacks and food from the BBQ. Also look out for impromptu arty ‘happenings’.

  1. There are very few places in London like The Rooftop Cafe at The Exchange. Only a handful of places exude such an exclusive atmosphere without the pretentious vibe and extensive price tag. Even fewer restaurants make you feel so at home that you don't want to leave. One of the things that I love about The Rooftop Cafe is the daily-changing menu. You never know what Head Chef Peter Le Faucheur has in store for you until you arrive...

  2. The Rooftop Cafe is the only restaurant at which I’ve eaten and then immediately booked myself in for a meal the following week. It was that good. The panoramic views are nothing short of sensational - I defy anyone not to get snap-happy when faced with this vista. Even Elephant and Castle looks relatively charming from three floors up with a herbaceous border!...
