Just excellent scones! I love them so much! It would have been better if the cream that they provide is not so little.

Waitresses not too bothered about serving you. Egg on toast is literally an egg on toast. Orange juice was great...The service however is what makes me give this place a 2 star. Sorry guys...

My friend and I stopped by here for traditional English tea, scones, and tea cakes. All were really good. The place is cute and conveniently located less than two minutes from the High Street Kensington tube station and ten minutes from Kensington Palace. It is decently priced, at least for London. The waitress wasn't overly friendly but she wasn't rude.... More

Very cute, cosy cafe with very nice staff. Nice range of food on offer. Had the Classic Muffin Man BLT, it was lovely, nice freshly squeezed orange too.

The muffins are good although not a must eat place. The decor is nice although I find the waitress not very friendly. I think there are better muffins in London.

Disappointed in the muffin man even with low expectations going in. Muffins looked and tasted as if bought from a random grocery store. Green tea tasted funny. Chicken club mediocre. Basically the ingredients used were subpar and mediocre. I don't this it is an inexpensive as some make it out. About the only thing decent was the very small hot... More

What trip to London would be complete without crumpets. Today we decided to ear out way across London. The crumpets were good, especially with a side of honey and jam. I don't remember if we were just hungry but we did have a second order.

Following in the footsteps of others who have stayed at the reasonably priced Kensington Close Hotel. Had the full English (scrambled egg, baked beans 1 sausage & 1 slice of bacon) with toast, juice and tea/coffee for £9.50; you will be hard pressed to find a breakfast cheaper in the area! Nice staff, typical English tea shop. Note they only... More
