Here you can enjoy a good english breakfast, with natural orange juice, for just 8,95£. Indeed, with any hot drink you get a free croisant (which is really tasty,by the way). You will have breakfast with english workers around,not a tourist place!

Close to the conference venue where I got sick of the fingerfoods served, this place became a haven for 4 days. Great (vegetarian) options, friendly staff, clean place, nice fresh food and the biggest black coffee ever:) Highly recommend. Nice homely atmosphere too, and small...More

First started coming here ten years ago when we stayed a few blocks away in a hotel with minimal breakfast offerings. I'd walk down for breakfast baguettes and coffee to take back to the family. I can't begin to count the number of times I've...More

We stopped here for breakfast and were disappointed. Gentleman behind the counter was very polite and working frantically to get people their food but the end result was spotty: delicious fresh squeezed orange juice, sausage in the full English breakfast was kind of funky, croissants...More

We stayed at a hotel without breakfast around the corner and ate breakfast here. It's located on a nice street. It's a small place but very cosy. The breakfast was great many options and the staff friendly and attentive.

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

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
