Good location near Kensington High Street and close to the Copthorne Tara hotel. Nice array of breakfast items including eggs, bacon, sausages, beans etc. Scones were plain that day, and the croissants were just average. The orange juice is freshly squeezed and delicious. The tables are a little tight, but they do have a lovely seating area outside. We got there about 8:30 AM, just before a big rush from the hotels. They also will take US dollars and do the exchange at a reasonable rate.

Thank Robert W

A little 2 storey tea house conveniently located on a street just adjacent to High Street Kensington Tube stn

Pretty Extensive menu for breakfast, everything from Scrambled eggs to sandwiches and panini and a large selection of Tea !

but you're really just here for the Scones.

They are one of the best scones Ive ever had, served with Rich Clotted cream and Strawberry Jam.. Warm and fresh !! Price was fairly reasonable. 5.90pds for a pot of tea and 2 scones, splitted

perfect place for brunch !

Waitress was a little rude and we felt like we had to self service in this place. Never any smile from anyone who served us. Seating wasn't comfortable food was ok. Decor old but not in a nice way. Just felt like it was a little worn out

I had breakfast there which was just OK. The pastries and cakes looked nice but the eggs are bland and the cappuccino is pretty bad...better to just go across the street to Cafe Nero for a good cappuccino

A rare well-priced London spot for breakfast, tea and muffins! Best eggs and bacon on English muffin, Tea for 2 with scones and clotted cream/preserves and paninis. Wish the nice ladies serving would smile more and say "Hi" to customers who went there every day for a week like we did!
