So the reviews for this cafe probably describe it adequately. Fortunately, I dropped in for a late dinner during a quiet moment. The cafe was mostly empty, so I was somewhat leery of my choice. However, I was rewarded with a tasty and healthy meal...More

We just wanted to sit down and have breakfast before heading out site seeing. This place is a free for all for seating with complete disorganization. The few open tables we saw when we walked in were quickly snatched up by people who came in...More

Wanted a local quick breakfast - very poor organisation and miserable staff. Most of the tables were cluttered with dirty used plates and cups, and I saw people walk in and out again as there appeared no where to sit! Excellent freshly squeezed orange juice...More

This is a good place for breakfast with many combinations of the old time favourites. It also serves a good variety of hot and cold food at relatively reasonable prices. The quality of the coffee varies depending on who serves it but it's normally ok....More

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
