Wash House Cafe

About the Wash House Cafe

The Wash House Café is the best-kept secret for a meal or a snack in Westminster.

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.

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

We are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 to 15:00.

Breakfast is served until 11:30 and hot lunch is served from 12:00 to 14:15.

Wash House Cafe

A hidden gem

Our spacious and comfortable café sits in the heart of London, in the beautiful former Victorian swimming baths building on Great Smith Street, just a stone’s throw away from 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.
