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.

As someone who is gluten-free, this was my go to place to treat myself to a proper cake that also anyone else could also eat. So I went yesterday to treat myself only to be told that they have changed chef and now none of...the fancy cakes in the window are gluten free. So so disappointed, I've even had a birthday cake made by them in the past.More

We have been going here since it opened and it seems that they are struggling to get or keep serving staff out front. New person every time and cannot do simple maths of adding the cost of two drinks together to put in the tap...and pay machine. It’s still very lovely but with their prices going up and front of house constant changes, they can’t take their eye off the ball right now.More

Small friendly cafe with polite and friendly service , importantly excellent tea and delicious cakes! The Apricot tart was with sweet crunchy pastry and not over sweet filling , the Raspberry cake was just delicious! Definitely will visit again :)

I have been coming to this little coffee and cake shop since it opened. The front of house staff seem to be changing regularly which means that they are slow and don’t prioritise. But the coffee and teas seem to be the same high quality...as ever.More

The nice decor and very friendly staff provided a pleasing traditional coffee shop ambiance, but the cappuccino was really quite bitter. I might well go again though and try a cup of tea with a slice of cake.

Kingston is full of chain cafes so it was a pleasure to discover an independent one. The coffee & cakes are perfection. We had a delicious lemon tart & an apricot one - all homemade on the premises. The owner was delightful ..... as relative...newcomers to Kingston we'll be making a point of returning regularly.More

We are staying near Hampton Court Palace and have walked along the Thames to Kingston. The 5km walk is easy and flat. This coffee place is located near the main bridge and is perfect place to sit and cool down. 

There is lots of seating...inside and it’s not crammed together. 

I had a vanilla latte and Janet a chilled latte.

The cakes here are a specially and we ate our share. Mine was a famous French patisserie created for the bike race from Paris to Brest. Some summers ago we watched this race. It’s a small world. The chef who makes all the cakes, took great delight in sharing his stories of cooking in France with me. What a delightful place.More

I am so happy that this incredible little coffee shop with beautiful cakes and pastries has survived the pandemic. It is so lovely, the staff are friendly and it has a really lovely atmosphere. Very popular with all ages, it really is fantastic.

Went there today with my niece, we greeted the waiter (maybe owner, I don't know, he was the only one there) and given we saw a sign saying "more seating upstairs", we went up, he saw us go up. After a while, I went down...to order, and he said "the seating upstairs is not open". Question 1: why didn't he tell us when he SAW US go upstairs? (the toilet is downstairs, so he can't think we were going there). Question 2: why didn't he leave a sign stating the upstairs area is closed, but, the only sign there says "seating upstairs available"??? Then, both coffees were NO GOOD. Hers, a flat white, mine, a latte. She said hers didn't taste like a flat white, as for my latte, it tasted AWFUL, I left most of it. The croissant was average. When I went to pay (at the beginning) he wouldn't give me a receipt (I was paying in cash) and said "we don't give receipts"???? Next time someone tells me that, I'll walk straight out. Don't understand what the raving reviews are about, maybe the cakes are good (we didn't have them), the coffee was decidedly BAD. Maybe when they went there was another person serving.. I will NOT set foot there again. With so many nice cafes in Kingston, who needs to repeat a bad experience?!?More

I discovered this coffee shop last week when I met a friend in Kingston for the first time since the start of Covid. It is superb. Their patisserie is incredible. I had great difficulty deciding which one to choose. I eventually picked a lemon meringue...pie, which is one of my favourites. The layout was welcoming and the owner and the service was friendly and efficient. The owner is originally from Algeria, but he went to France as a child and is now in Kingston. We started off talking in English and then just slipped into French at some point. I will certainly come again. I host on Couchsurfing and it is definitely a place to which I would like to take my visitors.More

My daughter loves this place, it’s consistently excellent. Today my wife and I had the salmon and avocado sandwich, and we both agreed this was unequivocally the best sandwich we’ve ever eaten. Every bite was truly exceptional, and I can’t wait to try this again.

This place was a lockdown discovery and only just writing a review. Amza the French owner used to be a chef in Mayfair I think. He’s French, and he knows how to make pastries that are works of art. My girlfriend’s favourite has about 5...different layers of taste (name begins with C but can't remeber the name). The Eclat Framboise and Black Forest slice are fantastic. Very partial to the Pain au Raisin too. There are hand made chcoloates too. In fact everything is hand made. But it is the lemon tart every time for me. Perfect pastry, and just the right level of tartness. Does not matter how many of these things I eat (and I have had a lot), they still wow me. They explode off your tatsebuds. The service here is always friendly, it’s a classy piece of France in Kingston, and I could not recommend it highly enough. I have to ration myself now!More
