We were staying at the Copthorne Tara and found this delightful little tea shop just up the road. We ended up having lunch and dinner there on a regular basis. They don't serve heavy meals which suited us fine. Service was prompt and friendly and you could sit either inside or outside and watch the world go by.

Quaint little shop with really yummy, freshly made and toasted sandwiches and crumpets. Great for a quick lunch or a light supper.

Good wholesome food, well served and well presented. You need to know this is an established that does not do card payments. Good value for Kensington.

DO NOT order the MuffinMan breakfast set thing. It's a total waste of money. Eggs were meh, Sausage was meh, Baked beans were meh. Not worth it at all. On the other hand, the scones were nicely baked. The ambience was nice and relaxing as I went on a weekday morning.

It's tucked away off the main Kensington High Street, cozy and crowded, but so very British Lovely staff, cash only..............fabuous egg sandwiches, cucumber tea sandwiches, all sorts of famous cakes and tarts, Victoria Cream, Devonshire scones, etc etc and vast assortment of teas Best too for people watching, locals and tourists alike...prices are reasonable and you aren't rushed to finish...

quiet location, we could sit outside and watch the world go by. The service was excellent and we both enjoyed our "special" muffin lunch.
