Great breakfast venue

We stayed at a hotel just down the road and for a brilliant home cooked breakfast at good prices this could not be beaten. Good service and fabulous food cooked to order

My favorite place for tea in London! And yes, I've been to the Ritz but the Muffin Man wins for being inexpensive and more charming! Lovely little establishment in a great shopping area.

I have been coming here for years and it remains a favourite, particularly for breakfast. It is like a village facility but in the big city. Lovely staff who are patient with everyone. Do, do try it.

We called in here for tea and cakes while waiting for our hotel room to be ready near by. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The Muffins were outstanding- most delicious. It was a very reasonable price for London.

Nice little place to refresh, food was nice, service was good. It was just a nice little place, bit warm on the inside but it was a very hot day in general so i doubt that could be helped.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
