My friend and I stopped here late one night after seeing a play. I got a Gruyere cheese focaccia bread and my friend got a chocolate and marzipan dessert. Both were absolutely AMAZING! The bread was so buttery and flavorful and the chocolate dessert was...More

I just came to work a bit and for the cinnamon slice on a Tuesday morning. Good seating and plugs nearby, if you come in to work. Best cinnamon slice I had so far in London. It was soft and moist. Generous portion too. Plenty...More

This place is extremely overhyped. It’s a simple cinnamon rolls (for the infamous cinnamon social). The staff is rude until you tell them you’re taking pictures for social media. Very disappointing experience.

Aside from the cinnamon social, which was really good, all other experiences of my Sunday brunch were just mediocre. My truffle portobello panini was burnt and tables were being partially cleaned, leaving crumbles still all over them... c'mon guys! The panini was exchanged and then...More

Came here in by chance one Saturday afternoon with friends and were not disappointed! There was very generous free samples of the cinnamon social on the counter, which was delicious! You take a ticket and get served when your ticket is called. They have great...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
