Found it in a corner outside my hotel. Great food excellent prices and worth visiting for breakfast. Note it does not accept cards, only cash.

This shop is one of the coziest In London. Small, warm, and the staff are so friendly and beautiful. They have a great selection of sandwiches and paninis. I had my breakfast there every day for a week. Can't wait to go back 😍

Had brunch here with a couple of my friends; we all got the Devon Cream tea set at £6.20 which includes 2 scones with jam and cream as well as a pot of tea. The set was FANTASTIC!! Didn't rate this a 5 because the...More

It's a very nice atmosphere, however the service is quite slow I've noticed after having been there a few times. Scones are good

Had lunch here on the 2nd July when visiting with my mother. Food was nice, nothing special. The tea was very good and full of flavour. Biggest let down was the service. Not attentive at all and girl who served us was not friendly. For...More

I walked past this popular (especially on weekends) Kensington bakery many times and finally stopped for breakfast. We were glad we did. Food: Tons of baked goods and a decent selection of cooked items. Tried the scones once and they were ok. Not the best....More

Food was alright, but the waiter who served me was very unfriendly. She would not let me switch places to an empty table even before taking my order (?!)

We stopped here for a late lunch and we're not disappointed. I had a chicken panini sandwich, while my wife enjoyed the salad with curried chicken. Both were good, though not outstanding. One item of note: They only take cash, not credit cards.

Limited breakfast menu, fair selection of hot & cold sandwich's, & main meals, location opposite Holiday Inn, therefore, suitable for hotel gusts not wishing to pay hotel food prices.

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

I'm not sure to be entirely honest although there was a man with a laptop working away when we were in one of the mornings. Perhaps it might tell you on their website. It's more a place for having a quick bite! Sorry... More
