Serving up reasonably priced American diner food in the heart of London’s Camden, close to Holborn tube and the British Museum, Clive’s Midtown Diner is a delightful hole-in-the-wall that draws in locals (and tourists, too) who crave big portions of good ol’ fashioned comfort food. And best of all, the skilled kitchen crew at Clive’s avoids using typical diner ingredients – rather than greasy and cheap, guests are served quality dishes made without the use of artificial colors and flavourings – and instead offer tasty diner favourites that you can feel good about eating
Breakfast at Clive’s Midtown Diner is no joke – we’re talking big American-sized portions, decadent ingredients and some of the best diner coffee in London. We recommend the Clive’s breakfast platter, a huge plate complete with sausage, bacon, eggs (any way you like ‘em), boston beans, grilled tomatoes and a pile of hash browns. Another favourite are Toby’s pancakes, cooked up nice and fluffy with maple syrup, just how they’re meant to be. Centrally located on Museum Street in Holborn, Clive’s Midtown Diner serves laid-back eats just steps from major sights like the British Museum.
Stop in for lunch and decide between a number of delicious burgers like the bacon blue burger (topped with blue cheese, bacon jam, lettuce, tomato and mayo) or the smokey pig burger (a beef patty topped with Mexican pulled pork, chipotle mayo and xni-pec). Holborn’s herbivores can get on board with the eager vegan burger, made using a patty made from chickpeas and sweet potatoes and topped with veggies and Clive’s sauce. Don’t even think about leaving this London American restaurant down Museum Street without sampling desserts such as Clive’s ice cream sundae, blueberry cheesecake pie and homemade banana bread – go big or go home!
Great place to eat. Good food and not too expensive. I love this diner and will definitely return. Hence, if you want a decent burger, this is a good place to eat.
Awesome service from really nice people, food was also just as good!! Be sure to try the hard shakes, the peanut butter one is insanely good!!
Excellent quality of food, excellent choice in both food including vegan options and drinks including alcohol, quick service and very reasonable prices for the location. Highly recommended.
The cheese burger was excellent and the premises comfortable. Overall the food was of a high standard. The staff were also welcoming and efficient. I'm so pleased to find a reasonably priced diner so close to work I will, without doubt return. Thank you.
The restaurant is very cute inside and out but it was all downhill from there. The restaurant was completely empty, and although the staff were very friendly, something just felt like it was missing. They were out of the only thing(chicken, non-battered/fried for salads) on the menu that one of the people in our party could eat, which made the visit very uneasy. The restaurant has a lot of potential and I would be willing to give it another chance someday in the future, but the experience this time just didn't do it for either of us.
Firstly the food and the drinks are excellent. Secondly the service and the ambience is very welcoming. And it is reasonably priced especially for central London. Glad we went.
Great food, specially the burger with pulled pork on top! Triple fried fries were tasty too. Not the best wine selection, but I guess for a diner this isn't a biggie!
Great food for this very touristy location. Extremely friendly staff. They offered us a discount as the food was a bit slow to arrive, also it was not so bad.
Amazing service. Would definitely go back there again. The chocolate milkshake was awesome but I didn't rate the onion rings. A very nice little diner.
