Nothing Fancy, But Perfectly Acceptable

Wanted a quick lunch prior to theatre on a warm Summer day. This fitted the bill perfectly. Food was very acceptable. Service was superb. Would just recommend the barbecue is more prominently advertised.

Usually visit here a couple of times a year, a good place to meet for lunch before catching a matinee at the nearby open air theatre. A good selection of food, and they are pretty good at turning the food around quickly, which is what you want when you have tickets for a show. Some seating inside, but lots of... More

The setting is beautiful. However the service and price let it down. Breakfast ends at 11 but you cannot even order food until 12 for lunch unless you want a pizza. Nowhere does it tell you this. You find our after you've queued and tried to order. Staff are clueless and nearly walked into our party whilst we were carrying... More

What an amazing park!!!! The weather was beautiful and we had an amazing walk around the park. We then stumbled upon the Garden cafe and felt a bit peckish. As we entered we were told that there is a bbq out the back. We decided to have burgers and the summer slaw. The burger pattys were thinner than any burger... More

Stopped for a coffee while walking in Regent's Park on a bright but cool day at the end of March. Clean and spacious with lots of outside seating. Pastries and cakes looked good but just had 2 very good Americanos. Pleasant service. Clean, modern loos. Well worth stopping off for if walking in lovely Regent's Park.

There are no others, so this is a loved coffee house for my daughter and her friends.prices are reasonable, the salads are fresh and so are the sandwiches and cakes. Servers are always well mannered.

Visited today with my sister and niece. Staff and venue both lovely. Disappointing service however. We ordered three hot chocolates and specifically asked for one to be slightly cooler for my niece. This was acknowledged by staff but when served the member of staff said they were all the same temperature. Probably best described as luke warm.

Perfect accompaniment for our night at the theatre. I even squeezed in a burger as wanted to try the BBQ.
