Description: The Paul Bakery and Café in Gloucester Road is at number 73, close to the junction with Cromwell Road in South Kensington. The area is largely residential, with many typical London garden squares between Cromwell Road and Fulham Road to the South, and Kensington Gardens to the North. A stroll up Gloucester Road and Palace Gate brings you out opposite the gate to Kensington Palace, former home of the Princess of Wales. Turn left here and you will be in Kensington High Street with its many fashionable shops. Our Bakery and Café in Gloucester Road has seating inside and out and is a popular place to meet up over coffee and cakes, or a light breakfast or lunch, as well as a destination for lovers of fresh, hand-made French bread. The nearest station is Gloucester Road (Piccadilly, Circle and District Lines). 10 seats are available inside. There is a terrace with a further 12 seats. Disabled access available. Free wi-fi.

“Worth the calories”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

It's conveniently located outside the Gloucester subway exit. Coffee is consistent and hot. The pastries are fresh and delicious. They have sandwich combos for better value. To top it off, the staff are pleasant and friendly. The cafe is small but take away is always an option.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Situated right opposite Gloucester Road tube station. Very busy little cafe with fast turnaround of customers. Ideal for a quick breakfast or lunch. Very good croissants and pastries and excellent coffee. Can be a tight squeeze during busy times but worth queuing for.
