“Caffe Concerto”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2010

I would avoid this place because its over priced, over rated and pretentious. Its very inviting with pleasant decor, sitting and a display of yummy cakes. We waited 20 mins before being served and then another to take our order. Staff were very rude and struggled with simple instructions. This place should be avoided.

“By far the worst meal of the holiday!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2009

We visited the Caffe Concerto over the Christmas period quite by accident. The rain was pouring down and we were desperately hungry. We spotted this little cafe and noticed how beautifully decorated it appear, with stunning cakes in the window.

On entrance we were quickly instructed to put our umbrellas in the umbrella stand (we didn't have any!). We were promptly seated and given the menu to peruse.

Quite a little while later our order was taken for Afternoon Tea for 2, quiche, sandwich and drinks.

Quite a long time later the food arrived! Not that there was a great deal of it. The tiny quiche was clearly reheated in a microwave and came with a bit of rocket and 1 cherry tomato. The sandwich was poor. The Afternoon Tea consisted of an assortment of 6 sandwich fingers (equal to 1 1/2 sandwiches with crust removed), 2 scones, 1 very tiny pot of clotted cream (no jam - we had to request that!), and a tart that had been cut in half!!, plus a small pot of tea. (That Afternoon Tea alone cost 5p short of £30 (approximately $50), to say nothing of £3.25 (approximately $5.50) for a glass of fanta or 7up).

We will never be visiting again.

“Thank you for a great start to te day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2009

Stayed in london for 3 nights in london and found the Caffe Caoncerto on high street Kensington
What a refreshing change to the stuffy catlle market conditions of my hotel restaurant!
caffe Concerto i think is a new chain and believe you me - there are many places that could take a few tips from these guys and girls. Service . food, atmosphere were all great - i went back three times and although it was nice to come home - they really got my mornings off to a great start. When I am back in london - i shall hunt them out again
Thanks very much - A good job well done.
