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

This eatery serves very good toasted scones with Devon cream and jam, apart from other dishes. We went there solely for the scones. It is located within walking distance from Kensington High Street tube station.The service is good but the place is small if you have to dine indoors. But when the weather permits, they provide outdoor dining. This eatery... More

We were a party of four who had breakfast here on two mornings. Good choice and freshly cooked food. The restaurant is small and was very busy. Staff are pleasant and service was prompt and efficient.

Good honest food at reasonable price. We had breakfast here and the service was really good. Loose leaf tea was a real treat and a pot for two is very generous. Much cheaper and tastier than the local hotels.

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!
