Alfies Rooftop Restaurant
A unique roof top cafe with a vintage twist
Location: 13-25 Church Street, Marylebone, NW8 8DT
Description: The Rooftop Kitchen at Alfies is one of London's hidden gems. Up the oak staircase (or take the lift) on the third floor, you'll discover an oasis of calm - a contemporary cafe with panoramic views over London's rooftops from its large sunny terrace.
If the vast antiques at Alfies is out of your league, you can find a bargain at the rooftop cafe.
There's nothing fancy about this place, with its plastic chairs and sizzling deep fryer, and the menu is limited to full English breakfasts, baked potatoes, burgers and sandwiches. The real draw is the large, hidden terrace, with views across the rooftops to the BT Tower to the east and the glossy office blocks of Paddington Basin to the west.
