We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and pastries. Service was quite pleasant and their specialty potato chips were so delicious! I wish I could take a lot of them home with me to the states!

If you want a quick snack for your breakfast then give this place a try, we were stopping near by and popped in here a couple of times as we didn't want to have a full breakfast

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
