I don't think they could have put less orange juice in a glass and called it a serving. Poor Value. don't be disappointed there are lots of other nice restaurants in the neighbourhood.

This place doesn't look very exciting from the outside, but the food and the service are in fact very good - I had a club sandwich, my husband had soup and a cake, and they were all great. The service was cheerful and friendly. Recommended.

Nice lunch with salads, sandwiches, and steak, dinner has quite a complete card with many choises, splendid servants, not too expensive, Nice place near a park. The steak seems to be famous. I liked it very much

This place is really popular with people with small children or people alone to get a cup of coffee. Or friends catching up. Staff is friendly, and there is a small outdoor area. It's next to the Wilhelmina Park. The food is simple, affordable and OK.

Went for a special family occasion and were bowled over by the quality of the food and friendly staff. The cafe has a lovely ambience. The chef treated us to an amazing selection of deserts. I would especially recommend the cheesecake. If you are looking for a simple lunch/coffee or for a special evening meal you will not go wrong... More

This is a good basic restaurant, nice food and great surrounding if you cross the street you are in the park and the people who serve dinner are very friendly and above all the food is good.

Pleasant location [a bit like the road from Kew Station to Kew Gardens]. Coffee was very good and the club sandwich was quite impressive, maybe a bit too busy with ingredients and layers, but we enjoyed it.

We live nearby and went for an easy lunch with my parents visiting. The food was good, the staff friendly, the café cat was sleeping on a pillow by the window next to me :). The coffee is good and the terrace is always packed on a sunny day. The club sandwich is served with chips which is a nice... More

Friendly restaurant in living area. The type you can go to by yourself and still have a good time. To have drinks or snacks this restaurant is great. We unfortunately had dinner and choose for the vegetarian options. Mine was supposed to be gnocchi with Spanish salsify (a kind of root vegetable) but it contained only 2 big gnocchi and... More
