Description: A lovely caf�� style restaurant, Megan���s Restaurant and Deli brings Kings Road down to earth in the very best way possible. Situated among high end interiors shops and antique stores, Megan���s is surprisingly rustic, the kind of place you might expect to run into in the more ���villagey��� neighbourhoods of London. But it���s this unexpected quality that makes Megan���s all the more like stepping in to an alternate universe ��� one of chintz teacups and wedges of cake, homey food and smiling service, outside you���ll even find London���s answer to the Holy Grail ��� that���s right, a garden! Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner, all freshly created with real heart.

By far this is the best breakfast around. First visit I was taken aback by it's interior and presentation, only then to be lead down into some secret back garden adorned with fairy lights. (If in a chilly month they have a roof cover) Staff are courteous and food is quick to arrive but anything but 'fast' nutritious and delicious. From personal experience I recommend the fruit salad and yoghurt or the full breakfast. And to finish....Have the brownie.

After negotiating some pretty steep stairs we were shown to our table in a charming courtyard decked out with fairy lights and lush vegetation. On a balmy summers evening this was the perfect setting for an al fresco meal. The atmosphere was quite buzzing and there seemed to be a good mix of clientele.
Our waiter was attentive and helpful and happy to answer our questions concerning items on the menu. There was a good choice of starters and the main course meat and fish dishes were all nicely cooked. They were all presented on large wooden platters accompanied by skinny French fries and 'salad' which basically consisted of lettuce leaves with no dressing so a little uninteresting. The puddings were nice and tasted home made but we regretted ordering the coffee as it was so bitter, even after adding copious amounts of milk, that we sent it back and asked for a replacement. Unfortunately this was no better and we couldn't drink it. The waiter told us the coffee used to be better but they now had to use a Free trade blend and this wasn't very good!
Overall we enjoyed the experience at Megan's. Prices are on the high side but I suspect this is because of the area in which it's situated but we didn't mind paying as the ambience and atmosphere were really good.

This locale, I was told, appeared in one TV series or another, depicting the life and problems of rich teenagers living in Chelsea (despite Megan's being more on the Fulham side of things). I assume that this fact granted it enough fame and glory to exempt it from offering anything other than good looking gruel.

Indeed, everything in Megan's looks nice. It is agreeably decorated, and by its entrance it has gorgeously looking cakes and pastries on display. As you walk in, you may even be acknowledged with some form of greeting. Then you may be conducted to an empty table, if there are any–the place is often packed with young urban professionals.

Then, it may be the case that after being sit down and while having a look at the menu, a different waiter comes to you and asks you to move to a different table, because there is this angry pair of couples who had apparently been promised (?) that specific table. While you are wondering about how such a posh place could so blatantly break the most basic rules of hospitality, your waiter may suddenly come back and apologetically show you and your companion to a different table, this time a table for 8, which one can only wonder why would that pair of couples didn't want.

Maybe they knew what was about to happen, and wanted to be sure they could be seen. Because this table is far away from her sight, so she only remembers to come back to take your order when you have already placed it yourself by the counter (15 minutes into being shown to that table). About fifteen minutes later, which seems to be the minimum amount of time required to brew some tea and make an espresso, some other waiter brings you an orange juice and some sort of salad which you hadn't ordered. Lest you had forgotten what you had ordered after the wait, she only takes it back once she has gone back to the counter to check that order was, indeed, not your table's.

Finally, the coffee and tea, and a croissant and a muffin, arrive. Ah, they look lovely! The coffee is a bit cold, though. You taste it, and you wonder whether the plantation the coffee beans come from hadn't been set on fire before collecting the beans, because all you can taste is smoke and ashes, alongside the characteristic bitterness of cheap beans. The coffee served is of the worst quality imaginable; the cheapest "torrefacto" over-roasted beans.

I was so appalled. Megan's coffee is one of the foulest things I've ever put in my mouth. Of course, I could have been wise enough to look around me as I waited, and notice that nobody was drinking any coffee-based drink that did not use about a pint of milk, to hide, I assume, the underwhelming coffee used. They charge you £2.3 for the 7gr of hellish coffee they put in their espresso. This is King's Rd though, so I've seen worse. The tea was tea, which doesn't take much wits to get acceptable.

But, ah, the pastries! Sumptuous looking. That "butter" croissant, so dry it could have been baked three days ago and bought in Lidl. The muffin was indescribable; as if all the butter that the croissant wanted to take had been put in it, alongside a kilo of caster sugar and some brownish shine to give it the colour of chocolate. All in all, a pricey disappointment as well. We wanted to have brunch too, but after this, we chose to go elsewhere. It was too much.

There is absolutely no relationship between what they serve you at Megan's, how they serve it, and what they charge you for it. The service is unprofessional, slow and rude; the drinks are mediocre; their pastries, the kind your kid would bake and then, despite how horrendous they actually are, you have to swallow with a smile in your face, lest you make him cry. Megan's owner must be the cleverest person in existence, selling all this gruel at exorbitant prices to posh people without any judgement.

Good spot on Fulham / Chelsea border with nice outdoor area. Formulaic dishes: steak, chips & salad on olive wood boards. Not really cooking, but okay. Fun and lively for young adults before disposable income becomes a thing of the past.

We love having brunch at Megan's and the eggs Benedict are simply fabulous. Great garden in the back for when the sun is out.
