    RubyToogood can't remember what goes here

    A visit to one did not answer the question for me.

    is there one of those near Clapham Junction too? - something similar anyway - whenever we've passed by on a Sunday morning there's a huge queue outside. I always wondered why would anyone spend their Sunday morning queuing for breakfast... :confused:

    Yeah, there's a newish one on Battersea Rise. They're fine but not worth the queue imo.
     
  4. the Soho one didn't have a queue when we went but then it was in the evening...

    Marie's cafe in waterloo. Very cheap BYOB Thai cafe. Was pretty quiet last night. Good food & atmosphere

    Have you tried Greenz, the vegetarian restaurant by Tulse Hill Station? I noticed they are byob yesterday.

    no and have been meaning to for ages - being vegetarian myself and in a little group who checks out new veggie restaurants. The main problem is that they are 7th Day Adventists and so keep quite unusual hours. Also, if I'm honest, the lack of booze put us off - but I didn't realise you were allowed to BYOB - last time I looked it was just alcohol free - that's tempting - although I'd be a bit worried about being smited or something.

    I didn't check the hours :) Hopefully they'll be open one Saturday teatime and we can check it out. The byob is on a bit of paper stuck to the window, might be a new thing.

    Hopefully they don't interrogate customers on their beliefs when taking your order, but I'll get the tiddler to answer as her Year 1 RE classes seem to have converted her into a rabid evangelist in the last month :rolleyes:

    Update on Beyrouth's Stratham: although they now sell wine and beer they do still allow BYOB. £1.50 per head corkage.

    quite a few in Balham.

    Ale and Spice- Sri Lankan
    Mamaris- decent Turkish kebab/grill
    Tagine- Moroccan
    Beyrouths- Thai
    another thai place a couple of doors up from Ale and Spice who's name escapes me.

    Many of the curry house's in Tooting are BYOB.

    I like this thread, I rarely eat anywhere that isn't BYOB

    The India Club on the Strand (Aldwych end) is BYOB. It has an old school, colonial feel. Very cheap.

    Is it all Breakfast style food though? Breakfast is the only meal I wouldn't really fancy booze with TBH.

    Kishmish in Crystal Palace - opposite the bus station - is BYOB and lots of people miss it because it's downstairs.

    But it's lovely. It even has an outside eating area.

    And it does veggie food, which interest the OP.

    Have you tried it?

    I know lots of people who really rate it, including people I have been there with but, both times I have been, I have chosen badly and ended up with a dish I really dislike. The same dish!! :eek: :facepalm:

    oh no! I just went the once but enjoyed everything I ate.

    I am quite convinced that it is me at fault. I just have to try and remember what it was that I ordered, so that I don't order it again :)

    Something to do with eggs, I recall, because I thought I was going to get an egg curry and I didn't.

    Why would anyone want to drink booze with breakfast food too? It's just weird.
