I visited Design Cafe yesterday. I work at One Whitehall Place, The Royal Horseguards Hotel and I had a meeting with Daina Walker from Absolute Taste. The food was absolutely delicious and I was very impressed with the warm, friendly and attentive service we received from all members of staff. I enjoyed myself. I will be recommending for sure.

We had some work to do at the Design Centre yesterday and got sidelined by the wine at the cafe! We decided to stay for lunch after being gently persuaded by Felix. I am, of course the perfect guest ;-0 but my friend can be quite awkward and she really enjoyed herself complaining that there was no piccalilli for her... More

I went with a friend to the Chelsea Harbour Design Centre to look at some curtain samples and whilst we were there we thought we would stop for lunch. At first we couldn't decide which restaurant to eat in; however, I'm so glad that we eventually decided on the Design Café. There is a good choice on the menu; I... More

Attached to a bookshop - lots of ladies lunching, presumably in between browsing all the amazing showrooms in this designer mecca. The menu is very reasonably priced - starters for about £7, mains for £10/12. All looked delicious on other tables too. Quite a small room but super staff. Great if it's raining and you are cruising the shops...

Whilst Visiting The Chelsea Harbour Design Centre we stopped at the Design Cafe for lunch, what a pleasant surprise, expecting the normal cafe fare of boring sandwiches and stale cakes we were delighted with our lunch. Lovely menu, much more exciting that we expected, great service and delicious food.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
