Wash House Cafe

A spacious and comfortable cafe near Westminster Abbey

The Wash House Cafe is the best-kept secret for a meal or a coffee break in Westminster.

Our spacious and comfortable cafe sits in the heart of London, in the beautiful former Victorian swimming baths building on Great Smith Street, near Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and St James’s Park. Whether you are in town for work or on holiday, it’s the perfect place to take a break.

Chef Gena and her team cook up hearty breakfasts to start the day and tasty lunch specials, homemade soups, generous jacket potatoes and lip-smacking sarnies to bring a smile to lunchtime. We also make delicious coffee and have a selection of tasty cakes.

With daily lunch specials from under £4, the Wash House Cafe is one of the best value restaurants in Victoria and central London.
