Just been to the French tart with my two children, I was shocked how horrible it was! The baguettes were so hard and stale that we couldn't eat them, and the cake was so dry it fell to crumbs!

I had their Broccoli and Stilton soup today, I could have eaten (or drunk) it for ever, absolutely delivious, served in a good sized deep bowl with little slices of their own baked bread. They also do a sublime-looking afternoon tea served on a beautiful upright circular stand. You have to order it 48 hours in advance, and that's exactly... More

Lovely for a light lunch - usually opt for the croque Monsieur and croque Madames. Cakes look delicious although I haven't tried them

May I suggest that when you reach this cafe you better make sure that they want to serve you. I arrived about 11.30 am sat outside and waited and waited. Other people were coming in and being served first??? I would love an explanation for that, is it that I am a regular and have become irrelevant?? An ashtray was... More

Personally, I didn't like the coffee here - it left a nasty taste in my mouth so I won't be coming back. The service was quick and friendly and the tarts looked fresh and delicious, although I didn't have one.

An excellent selection of lovely cakes and pastries, the coffee is good and service very friendly. They do nice, freshly made-up baguettes but they run out early afternoon. It's great for continental breakfast, but got to The Coffee Mill down the High Street if you want a cooked breakfast.

We have been to Teddington a few times now and walked past here many times on the way to the train station. Finally we had an opportunity to go in and see what they had to offer. It was very busy but we managed to find a seat in the window area which was great although a little warm in... More
