“Best EVER!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This was the 'find' of our holiday. It's easy to walk past, there is not 'corporate branding' or bright lights. And it's busy. But there's a reason - this is excellent, quality unassuming food in generous portions very reasonably priced. Loved the 'international 2 cows' graffitti, super friendly staff and did I mention the food? Order a hot drink and get a complimentary croissant in the morning.
I loved the almond croissants whilst my other half went for the bacon baguettes. Next time we visit we'll be going for tea time pizzas as well as breakfast.

“good food at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

My husband and I stopped here for a meal last week. We had looked around the area and decided to stop here as the prices looked good and I had seen the reviews on tripadvisor. I had pizza which was wonderfully thin while my husband had meatballs and rice. We both enjoyed our food and had cheesecake to finish. A great meal at a great price

“What a hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

You may not think much of this place when you pass it on the street, but I promise that if you step inside for a hot chocolate a croissant, your day will be so much better! They obviously do a roaring trade in these items - they have the croissants packaged up in takeaway bags ready to go! They are so fresh and still a little warm out of the oven. Honestly, some of the tastiest treats around.

“Lovely little place with good food and value for money. Child friendly and great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in Kensington just after the London2012 Olympics and used tripadvisor to find this little gem. Good food, relaxed atmosphere, value for money and child friendly.

“Gorgeous cafe, open late”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Gorgeous little cafe, open late into the evening. Has a wonderful European vibe, with a mix of Italian and Greek food. Huge portions, tasty and fresh, great coffee. Super friendly staff. I love the old boys sitting out the front playing draughts and chess!
