Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stopped here for coffee & cake, came away wishing we lived nearer! The most beautiful selection of freshly made cakes, pastries, sandwiches & treats. The staff were wonderful, so warm & welcoming. It is a lovely little deli with seating, authentic/relaxed atmosphere. The cakes were...out...of this world. A huge array with delicious flavour combinations. Great coffee and chilled juices - just like being on holiday! There is true heart here; this place is simply perfect.More

I've been here a number of times and the staff are always incredibly friendly, the food is delicious and the coffee is the best I've had in Kingston. It's also the perfect place to pick up wine and other foods, which are always high quality...and make perfect gifts. I would particularly recommend trying the pastel de nata, if you are here! Can not recommend it highly enough!More

Beautiful coffee house. The place is so much more than that it sells some great Portuguese products from alcoholic spirits, wine and produce. We went in simply there for herbal tea and were made to feel so welcome. The owner brought over a selection of...almonds / raspberries for us to sample. Take my advice and try it.More

"Karl" and I stumbled across this hidden gem whilst looking for somewhere else! It's tucked away in the Griffin Centre, just off Kingston Market Place. It's a cafe-cum-shop, so you can browse for sardines and Portuguese wine whilst waiting for your food. We particularly loved...sitting on the high stools by the window, and watching the passers-by. We both had a bowl of wonderfully gloopy soup, a chicken pie, and a lemonade, and the bill was about £11 each. Mimosa's vibes are very good. We'll be back. Dr Paul HarrisMore

My dad and I visited today for the first time. Dad found Mimosas on a Google search of places to have lunch and was taken by all the great reviews. This place was lovely inside with a deli like feel and the food we had...was delicious. Highly recommend any of the croquettes but I think my favourite was the cheese and cumin and you really must have the custard tart to finish!More

We met mum and a friend for lunch. My husband loved his pork and fava dish with rice. I had salt cod and mum and our friend had traditional custard tarts we had a couple of other goodies on the table all washed down with...a really lovely dry Portuguese white. Super lunch and friendly service in a lovely setting. Will definitely be going back, I fancy trying the platter next timeMore

Probably can't really be described as hidden but Mimosa is a real gem. We had a selection of artisan sandwiches, savoury croquettes (Portuguese style) and pastries. Everything was home made and delicious. The coffee was outstanding. The deli has some great wine and lots of...interesting products from Portugal; we bought some as gifts for the family. We were visiting on holiday fro Ireland but if I lived in Kingston (or London!¬), I'd be here every week. The owner was very helpful and working very hard on his own when we visited.More

Really good find. A friendly and knowledgeable host, great coffee and some interesting Portuguese cakes (including pastéis de nata of course). They also stock a very interesting range of wines and other items such as Portuguese canned seafood delicacies. Highly recommended.

I usually stop at Mimosa, with friends on the way back from a long bike ride on Sundays. The owner always has a smile, wonderful pastries and good coffee. It’s tucked away off the main drag but near the market area. Go there.
