I had been travelling all day and found this place near my hotel. I had a lovely fresh egg salad and delightful piece of carrot cake. Well worth a visit and very reasonable in price given the area of London it is in. Keep up the good work will be visiting again.

The Muffin man was real find We had been looking for a place to have a traditional English tea, however, most places were very expensive for a pot of tea, biscuits and scones. Then we heard about the Muffin Man. It was very lovely, quaint and in a very nice area of Kensington. The staff was very polite and attentive. They brought over a lovely tray of sweets and two pots of tea. There were only two of us. The tables are set up for 2 and 4 (possibly 5). We went for an early tea (about 2), however, I can imagine it is really crowded at tea time.

It’s a lovely little shop, but only if you can devote the time. We stopped in for breakfast on our way from the Holiday Inn to the station. We were searing quickly, but that’s the only thing that happened fast. We waited 30-45 minutes easily for even our drinks to be served. The other waitress had tables seated, served, and gone before anyone on our section even had coffee or tea. So the customer experience very much depended upon where you were seated. Several of us debated leaving. Once it arrived, the food was fine. Nothing outstanding, but nothing wrong either.

This is a good old fashioned tea shop in the heart of Kensington which serves value for money breakfasts & light meals. I had the chicken Caesar salad for supper which was enormous.
