Sun cafe on busy A1 – Clerkenwell

The Sun on the busy A1 – Goswell Road – in Clerkenwell looks like something of a transport caff from outside; fairly unappealing with its garish signage and menu posters plastered on the windows.

But venture in and the service is speedy and friendly. On my lunchtime visits, it’s been apparent that the patrons know many of their regulars and welcome everyone regardless. And the food is more bistro style than greasy spoon.

Poached eggs on toast

I ordered a salad as a healthy(ish) option. At about £6.00 this was great value given the variety of  ingredients and large plate full. The halloumi and dips were spot on too. That said, I had food envy looking at those poached eggs, cooked to wibbly perfection – ready to spill their yolks.

 

The verdict: Good value cafe with an extensive brunch and lunch menu including sandwiches, burgers, omelettes and jacket potatoes and a range of salads. Get there early if you want a table at lunchtime.
