I stopped here after visiting the Columbia Road Flower Market, and was happy to be away from the crowds at the market. The cafe is tucked into the back of the Vintage Heaven shop. The staff were very pleasant and attentive, and the scone and hot chocolate were excellent. It's a small place, but very quaint and warm. Definitely recommended!

Perfect stop for a hot drink and a nice snack or scone/piece of cake. They do veggie and meat pastries. Cheese, plain or fruit scones. And, a fantastic range of homemade cakes YUM!

A great little find, in the back of a vintage homewares shop. Rounded of a visit to Columbia Road Flower Market nicely. There was a variety of delicious cakes on offer; with eclectic crockery adding to the ambience. The service was also friendly and personable.

Thread your way through the vintage crockery shop at the front (being careful not to smash anything in your rush to sample the cakes beyond) into a cosy tea shop serving a small selection of sandwiches and lots of cakes and teas on mix and match vintage crockery. Hit the spot after an hour of fighting along Columbia Road and... More
