I do not believe anyone who claims that this place is ok. This place is dirty and unsanitary - i went down stairs to use the loo which is right in the kitchen, if you can call it a kitchen. The kitchen was disgusting, the...More

This place used to be run by some lovely guys, but according to another review it has changed hands and its obvious. The croissants are very much below average, they used to be amazing. The main member of staff was quite rude (though the others...More

I’d like to say I stumbled on Montpasse myself but actually it was brought to my attention through a mention in a blog, ‘Kensington walks’ The cafe positioned a stones throw from the high street, sandwiched between other unassuming shopsyou could hardly know it was...More

I have been in South Kensington for 5 years now and have only just visited this beautiful little cafe. Amazing pastries and tasty coffee served by french staff. Great little find.

Tucked away behind the High Street, this gem of a place transports you to Paris the minute you walk through the door. I’ve been coming to Montparnasse for years and it’s still a very well-kept secret (so don’t tell anyone 😉). The aroma of freshly...More

This place has changed hands. Menu changed, food quality has gone down, grumpy owner has bad attitude towards customers. Used to be a local favourite, we won’t go back!!! What a shame.

My wife and I lived in France for seven years. Since moving to London we have struggled to find a French bakery here. When we discovered Montparnasse Cafe we were back in France. Oh what a joy to taste authentic baguette again! The croissants, the...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
