“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Excellent lunch and tea just before a visit to the museums. A little gem, although it might be difficult to find a seat.

“AMAZING Baguettes and affordable”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I went today for the lunchtime meal deal - a cookie, baguette of your choice and a drink. I go most days and I love this restaurant it is superb. Friendly staff and cheap! Definitely recommend if ever around South Kensington.

“Support the independents”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Great friendly cafe with loads of choice, all freshly prepared and delivered with a friendly smile. Very veggie friendly. Visited with 3 friends and were not rushed out even though they were busy. Coffee excellent. Will definitely visit again. Unlike chains, it delivers a very personal friendly place and you can practice your French too!

“Awesome”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

I've just moved to London from Charleston, SC and Rasion D'etre was recommended to check out. Delicious food, friendly atmosphere, and the owner Matthieu is incredibly nice. A must-stop in South Kensington.

“Great food, the best coffee, and excellent staff”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Raison D'etre is by far my favorite place in London to sit down, relax, and have a delicious cappuccino. The best coffee I've had in London is complimented by a great menu (Vegetarian friendly of course!), wonderful staff and a very kind owner. All in all, great sandwiches/salads, coffee, and service.
