I was so impressed with this place! We had a family lunch there and it catered for everyone. Coffee great and food was incredible. Has an Alice in Wonderland theme. All food was titled according to the book. Was packed. Had an outdoor area. Can't pre book so you may have to wait. Food presentation amazing. Pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

From the moment you step through the door you will be in awe. This place is a real gem and just what Bayswater was missing! I’ve enjoyed breakfast here a few times and it never disappoints. The breakfast sharing board is always a good option to enjoy sweet and savoury. Staff are generally good - sometimes I’ve found some are more attentive than others. Parking isn’t great, you have to be very lucky to get a spot out the front. A bit annoying that they don’t take bookings but usually we’ve found it not too bad to wait.

This cafe was so worth finding!! It’s not in your usual spot, but it was very worth getting here. Waiting a few minutes for table. Ordered coffee & breakfast . Coffee made well, breakfast was delightful, very pretty and tasted just as good. On leaving we took away 3 Nutella donuts! Wow yum!! The cakes to much for me but amazing watching the chefs at work whilst dining
A must go to if in the area!!! 10/10

The food here was amazing (and quick) and the staff were really friendly and helpful. A few sour notes were we had to wait 45 minutes to get our table which was annoying as we tried to reserve a table but told we couldn’t on weekend (which is policy alothough we had a waiter come up to us and ask that we leave by 2 as the table was RESERVED for a high tea). Another note was that no kitchen staff wore gloves. As I was standing waiting for a table I saw staff grab cakes with there bear hands the chefs also had no gloves and I saw one guy heap a cooked egg right off the pan and onto a plate. There were doughnuts and other treats left open on the top of the display cabinets were anyone could touch them (not sure if those doughnuts were for sale but I couldn’t see any of them in display cases). The parking was really bad and we ended parking across the street and having to cross a busy road with 3 hyper kids. The saving grace of this was the food and I recommend trying to come on a weekday if possible and booking in.
