A gem just off Kensington a High Street. We had a couple of tasty paninis but wished we had room for some of the delicious looking cakes on display. Reasonably priced for the area too. Only gripe was the lack of card machine, but perhaps this wouldn't have been in keeping with the rustic vibe!

My Aunt and Husband and I stayed at the Kensington Close Hotel for 4 days in September of 2014 and we decided to try this Tea Shop for Lunch towards the end of our stay. Great homemade soup, cake and sandwiches and service was excellent. We enjoyed sitting outside and decided to have supper there the next day.Prices were reasonable... More

A good breakfast in pleasant surroundings but perhaps a little expensive for what you actually receive. I would have liked to butter my own toast and been able to choose which style of egg to accompany the breakfast. Nevertheless, service was good and fast despite business being brisk.

Great for a traditional breakfast, and was busy throughout the day. Tables where a little small for our party of 4, but we managed to fit everything on, just. Traditional breakfast almost £10.

I'm in London once a month with work and always come here for breakfast. Always get the same thing and a take away lunch. I can not fault it. The morning staff (as I'm very very rarely there in the evening) are fantastic! Food is always perfect. I have been coming here for years and I shall continue every time... More

A fantastic little bakery that was perfect for breakfast before sightseeing. Muffins were delicious as were the other breakfast items. Make sure to stop at least once.
