This little cafe is very reasonably priced if the hotel you are staying at nearby doesnot include breakfast ( or you don't want to pay the usual costly prices !! ) They have a good value full English breakfast with toast, coffe or tea and freshly squeezed orange juice included in the price. If you want to be more healthy... More

A sweet oasis which is tucked away from the main high street, but conveniently near the station side exit, this cafeteria would not be out of place in the West Country. They offer a selection of snacks, light meals and cakes/pastries. Not the best quality wise, salads not much to them and rather disappointing and the cakes don't seem the... More

The excellent breakfasts are freshly cooked and served without delay. They are really good value for money. It is also a very handy place for a cup of tea and a cake or snack. The staff are very polite and pleasant. I go back every time I'm in London.

We stopped in here one morning while in London and wished we had more time to come again. The restaurant is small but the flavors were amazing! I had a simple pot of tea with scones served with Devonshire cream. Let me tell you: best scones ever!!! My travel mate had a full plate breakfast and everything was delicious. The... More

Have loved this little place for years. It's just a few steps from the Copthorne Tara Hotel in Kensington and a great place for tea, scones, or a full breakfast and the prices are reasonable. This feels like a little neighborhood tea shop, which it is. You feel like a local when you eat here. Great food, really good service.... More

My boyfriend and I dropped in here for a pot of tea and a cake and we didn't get the tasty homemade experience we were expecting. The slice of cake we opted for (the coffee and walnut) was almost certainly bought in and not fresh and tasted nothing like coffee and walnut! Because of the synthetic nature of the sponge,... More

Nice cakes and a proper cup of tea. Like the fact it's homely. Disliked nothing. Plus its very close to Kensington High Street tube which helps
